Stress Ulcer and Unilateral Truncal Vagotomy

  • Kikuo Mohri


In recent clinical and experimental studies, vagotomy has given favorable results for peptic ulcers by reducing acid production through elimination of vagal stimuli [1]. Experimental gastric ulceration and bleeding caused by immobilization stress or a stereotactic hypothalamic lesion, however, can be prevented by vagotomy or sympathectomy [2].
