The tube that transports food from your throat to your stomach is called your esophagus. It is essential for digestion. Your lower esophagus' tissue can often get damaged during strong coughing or vomiting, which can cause it to begin bleeding and the medical term for this condition is Mallory-Weiss laceration, which happens at or close to the point where your esophagus and stomach converge. Mallory Weiss tears typically resolve independently, but some people need therapy.
Causes of Mallory Weiss Laceration:
- Increased pressure in the abdomen is what causes Mallory Weiss Laceration. The most common causes are severe vomiting or coughing. While vomiting can occur due to stomach sickness, it also can happen as a result of bulimia or prolonged alcohol consumption.
- Hiatal hernias and childbirth, which can raise abdominal pressure, are less prevalent reasons.
Other common causes of the Mallory Weiss Laceration are:
- Injury to the abdomen or chest
- Severe or persistent hiccups
- Strong coughing, heavy lifting or straining a hiatal hernia, which happens when a portion of the stomach pushes through a portion of the diaphragm.
- Gastritis (An inflammation occurs in the lining of the stomach)
- Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can also cause an esophageal rip. As per the research, males are more likely than females to develop this condition.
- Alcoholics are more likely to experience it.
- This condition mostly develops between the ages of 40 and 60.
- Mallory-Weiss tears, however, can occur in children and young adults.
