[Selective proximal vagotomy with duodenoplasty in the treatment of duodenal stenosis in patients with duodenal ulcer].Khirurgiia (Mosk) 1997; (4):38-43K
The results of surgical treatment of 118 patients with duodenal ulcer complicated with stenosis that have been operated on from 1981 to 1992 have been analysed. Selective proximal vagotomy (SPV) and duodenoplasty was performed in 58 (49.2%) patients (study group). SPV and gastroduodenal anastomosis by the method of Jabulay was performed in 60 (50.8%)-control group. The rate of postoperative morbidity in the study group-5.1%, in the control group-8.4%. The long-term follow up is from 1 year to 10 years (mean 5 + 0.6). The rate of recurrence of peptic ulcer is 8.6% in the study group and 10% in the control group. The modified scale (D. Johnson, 1976) was used for comparative evaluation of efficacy of two types of surgery. SPV and duodenoplasty was estimated in 175.1 points, that is 2.5 times less that SPV and gastroduodenal anastomosis (406.1 points). This demonstrates the advantages of SPV and duodenoplasty. The authors advocate SPV and duodenoplasty as a method of choice in the treatment of stenotic duodenal ulcer.
