Blind loop syndrome in japan and effect of surgical treatment for patients with megaloblastic or megalocytic anemia
- 7 Downloads
I had collected 286 cases including my own 9 cases of blind loop syndrome or disorder following shunt operation of intestine in Japanese literatures until June 1970. There were 5 cases of MBA, 15 cases of MCA, who certainly confirmed by hematologic examination. I have reviewed the clinical course and findings, therapeutic effect, especially surgical treatment and follow up results of anemia.
I have considered, if there were anatomical abnormality of gastrointestinal tract with or without MBA, MCA, these abnormality should be corrected by operation.
