Two studies have shown an increase in the presence of a hiatal hernia in patients with obesity and GERD [3,4]. It is possible that these patients have an increase in intra-abdominal pressure, which may increase the cephalad movement of a hiatus hernia and increase the predisposition to reflux events [5].
