Considerations about the intractable gastric ulcers observed endoscopically
- 17 Downloads
Observing the evolution of the gastric ulcer, we denned the intractable gastric ulcer as that ulcer which is not cured within 4 months medically. Endoscopically, those intractable gastric ulcers are characterized by greater depth in single ulcers and by a horizontal arrangement in multiple ulcers.
For clarification of these points, we have reported on our studies of the irregularly arranged ulcers, the relapsing ulcers and the ulcers in teenagers. We have also referred to the possiblility of the auto-immune reaction being a significant factor in the chronicity of this disease.
