Which of the following does NOT pass through the esophageal hiatus of the diaphragm?

Correct! Wrong!

The esophagus, anterior and posterior vagal trunks, esophageal branches of the left gastric vessels, and lymphatic vessels pass through the esophageal hiatus

Which of the following passes through the aortic hiatus of the diaphragm?

Correct! Wrong!
