A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or the fascia of an organ through the wall of the cavity that normally contains it. A hiatal hernia occurs when the stomach protrudes into the mediastinum through the esophageal opening in the diaphragm. By far the most common herniae develop in the abdomen, when a weakness in the abdominal wall evolves into a localized hole, or ""defect"", through which adipose tissue, or abdominal organs covered with peritoneum, may protrude.
