[Experience with the treatment of peptic ulcer].Vestn Khir Im I I Grek. 1986 Apr; 136(4):9-17.VK
Results of the surgical treatment of ulcer disease in 3979 patients (during 35 years) are presented. The tactics and technique of different kinds of resection of the stomach are developed in the clinic. The author's experience shows that there is every reason to give up vagotomy as the method of choice in the treatment of ulcer disease. This tactic allowed to reduce lethality during the recent 10 years to 0.6% and to obtain good long-term results in 99.3% in the treatment of gastric ulcer and in 93%--in duodenal ulcers.
