[Vagotomy in the surgery of perforated pyloroduodenal ulcer].Vestn Khir Im I I Grek. 1987 Jun; 138(6):24-6.VK
Under analysis are results of the surgical treatment of 300 patients with perforating pyloroduodenal ulcers. The correct selection of patients for the operation gives best nearest and especially long-term results of vagotomy with antrum resection. The amount of recurrences after a simple suturing of the ulcer in 164 patients was 50%, while after vagotomy with/without various draining operations it was 3.7%. Postoperative lethality after vagotomy was not great, long-term results being considerably better than after the operations of simple suturing the ulcer.
