Highly selective vagotomy in the treatment of complicated duodenal ulcer.
Med J Aust 1990; 152(11):574-6MJ

Abstract

Highly selective vagotomy has been utilized urgently in 33 patients with bleeding duodenal ulcer, 16 patients with pyloric stenosis and six patients presenting with perforated ulcer. Five patients died after surgery for bleeding duodenal ulcer, and two patients rebled after surgery. Forty-eight patients were reviewed at a mean of 28 months with an excellent outcome being obtained in 45 patients. Two of the three patients with poor results had proven ulcer recurrence while the third patient required reoperation for recurrent pyloric stenosis. No patient has suffered diarrhoea after vagotomy. Highly selective vagotomy is an effective treatment for urgent management of complicated duodenal ulceration and is without troublesome post-vagotomy symptoms.
