Abstract

The long-term development following gastrectomy is frequently agonizing, so that the term agastric dystrophy was coined. Severe reflux esophagitis, lack of appetite, and a sensation of fullness, an early and late postalimentary syndrome can result in such considerable subjective discomfort, that sufficient intake of nutrients with a satisfactory caloric substitution no longer becomes possible.
