The LES can fail through a couple of different ways such as through relaxation of the sphincter, often associated with a hiatal hernia, and by the incomplete closure of the sphincter.
The body is so perfectly designed that the LES is a valve that opens to allow food in the stomach and is intended to keep close to the acid in the esophagus.
