Hiatus hernia: A sliding hernia happens when the top of the stomach and the lower part of the esophagus squeeze up into the space above the diaphragm. This is the most common type of hiatal hernia. A paraesophageal hernia happens when the top of the stomach squeezes up into the space above the diaphragm.
