Follow-up of pylorus preserving gastrectomy for duodenal ulcer
- 8 Downloads
FIFTY-FOUR patients with uncomplicated duodenal ulcer underwent pylorus preserving gastrectomy. Follow-up at 4 to 10 years showed a recurrent ulcer rate of 14%. The incidence of dumping and diarrhoea was very low and the most frequent side effect was vomiting. In view of the high recurrence rate and the incidence of gastric stasis, the procedure cannot be recommended.
