Abstract

Postoperative disorders after gastrectomy have been attracting attention due to the improvement in the operative results of gastric cancer. Gastroesophageal reflux disease is one of the postgastrectomy complications which affects the quality of life of the patient. The incidence of reflux esophagitis after gastrectomy is high and it tends to be refractory once it occurs [1]. There are many reports about alkaline reflux esophagitis after total gastrectomy, but only a few papers report on esophagitis after distal partial gastrectomy. Understanding the pathophysiology of reflux esophagitis after distal partial gastrectomy is important for therapy. The aim of the study presented here was to determine the mechanisms of reflux esophagitis following distal partial gastrectomy.
