Healing of peptic ulcer

  • Maurice Feldman

The clinical and roentgenlogical healing of a peptic ulcer is a common observation. On the other hand, healed peptic ulcers are not as frequently observed in a study of autopsy material. The autopsy incidence of healed peptic ulcer was 1.7 per cent. The great disparity in the incidence of healing between the clinical and necropsy findings is probably attributable to the completeness of the healing and re-epithelialization of the mucosa, so that grossly many of the healed peptic ulcers cannot be demonstrated.
