Abstract

Despite successful medical treatment to reduce acid hypersecretion and eradicate Helicobacter pylori surgery still plays an important role in the management of peptic ulcer disease. In the last two decades there has been a decrease in the number of elective operations, while the number of emergency operations for complications of peptic ulcers has increased. Taylor has shown that in the United Kingdom the mortality of duodenal ulcer disease, instead of diminishing, has been stable or risen slightly. It stands at 4,500 a year.1 One might have expected a decrease in light of the introduction of effective antiulcer medications in the 1970s. The high recurrence rate, up to 90%, following discontinuation of medical therapy, and the consistently high morbidity and mortality should lead to a resurgence of interest in surgery for peptic ulcer disease.2
