Billroth I Resection

  • H. D. Becker


The Billroth I procedure consists of removal of the distal stomach including the pylorus, followed by gastroduodenostomy to reestablish gastrointestinal continuity. While antrectomy refers to extirpation of the antrum alone, the typical Billroth I resection includes an extensive resection of the body of the stomach in the area of the lesser curvature. The gastroduodenostomy may be constructed in an end-to-end or end-to-side fashion.
