[Vagotomy and drainage adapted for ulcerous stenosis].J Chir (Paris). 1986 Jun-Jul; 123(6-7):384-9.JC
The authors have retrospectively studied 56 patients with duodenal ulcer stenosis treated by vagotomy and gastric drainage. They found that there are several types of stenosis needing different drainage and vagotomy procedures. So, they propose an operative policy based on the result of a intra-operative exploration adapting the gastric drainage to the type of stenosis and vagotomy to the selected drainage. If the ideal is to preserve pylorus, then to perform a H.S.V. with dilatation or duodenoplasty, nevertheless, according to the authors, there are still indications for T.V. and drainage.
