Abstract

Atrial fibrillation (AF), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and hiatal hernias are commonly seen in clinical practice. GERD and hiatal hernias have been proposed to be a possible cause of AF. In this paper, we will briefly review GERD, AF and hiatal hernias, consider the available literature covering the association between these diseases and provide further insight into the topic in general.
