Abstract

The experience with 233 stomach resections in "difficult" ulcers is analyzed. The main cause of complications and lethality after these surgeries is duodenal stump sutures insufficiency seen in 17 (7.3%) patients, and in 10 (4.3%) patients it was the cause of death. Original duodenal stump cover was performed in 86 patients. There were no cases of suture insufficiency, two patients died of pneumonia and hepatic failure.
