Abstract:
Hiatal hernia is defined as any protrusion of abdominal contents through the oesophageal hiatus of the diaphragm into the thoracic cavity in the presence of an intact phrenico-oesophageal ligament. A six-year-old queen was referred to the Madras Veterinary College and Teaching Hospital, with a history of a road traffic accident one week back. Dyspnea, grunting and collapse had developed over the 12 hours previous to presentation Stabilization was accomplished using plication of the diaphragm to narrow the hiatus, esophagopexy and gastropexy to prevent cranial displacement of the stomach. This case of a hiatal hernia in a cat was managed by simple reduction and stabilization, respectively.
