Conclusion

From histologic study of 161 cases of acute focal lesions of the gastric mucosa, we would conclude.
  1. 1.

    Regardless of etiology, focal gastric lesions are the result of chronic circulatory insufficiency to all the structures of the gastric wall.

     
  2. 2.

    Such circulatory deficiency is part of a generalized insufficiency intensified by intrinsic vascular peculiarities of the stomach, of an anatomical or vasomotor nature.

     
  3. 3.

    Generalized circulatory insufficiency may be established through quantitative, qualitative or vasomotor alterations in the circulatory system.
