  • Arildo De Toledo Viana
Conference paper


The purpose of this work is to demonstrate how to diagnose antro-pyloric stenosis in patients with esophageal lesions due to ingestion of caustic or corrosive substances, as well as to emphasize the possibility of creating a standard for surgical therapy of gastric injuries which takes into consideration the physiopathological elements of such a condition.
