Hiccups - involuntary spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm, accompanied by a flow of air into the airways and a reduction of the vocal cords.

Prolonged hiccups can be caused by irritation of the diaphragm, which can occur with lesions of nearby organs - stomach, intestine, diaphragmatic hernia.

In some cases, the cause of long-term hiccups include:
  • myocardial infarction
  • pericarditis
  • ascites
  • peritonitis
  • psychogenic disorder.
