Treatment of Marginal Ulcer
Marginal ulcer (MU) infrequently follows MGB or OAGB. MU has been associated with smoking, NSAIDs, steroids, spicy foods, and very heavy alcohol intake, which should be avoided. H. pylori infection may be a cause and should be treated. MU is confirmed by gastroscopy. The incidence after RYGB has been higher.
