Concepts in Surgery of the Stomach and Duodenum
The most common indications for gastric operation are ulcer disease, neoplasm, morbid obesity, and the need for chronic gastric intubation (gastrostomy). This chapter discusses important concepts relevant to the choice of operation for these common indications. Included are brief discussions on the current role of vagotomy in the management of peptic ulcer disease, the choice of drainage procedure after gastric resection, and the management of postoperative complications.
