Differentiation of Hiatus Hernia in the Elderly

This disease should be differentiated from angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, gastritis, peptic ulcer, upper gastrointestinal tumor, biliary tract disease, and gastrointestinal or pharyngeal neurosis. In the case of dysphagia, it should be differentiated from esophageal cancer. Different from esophageal cancer, the dysphagia of this disease occurs at the end of swallowing, rather than at the beginning; it is a long-term intermittent attack, rather than progressive deterioration; sometimes small mouth eating is more likely to cause dysphagia instead of large mouth eating; It can appear suddenly and last for a few minutes, hours or days, or it can suddenly disappear or gradually relieve.
