Classification of Hiatal Hernias and Incidence
Type I (90%): Classic sliding hiatal hernia in which gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) migrates into the thorax though the esophageal hiatus.
Type II (9%): True paraesophageal hernia, in which the fundus of the stomach herniates into the thorax and the GEJ is in normal position.
Type III (1%): Combination of the two previous types.
