ARMAS PEREZ, Bárbaro; REYES BALSEIRO, Evelio; GARCIA RODRIGUEZ, Miguel  and  ARMAS MOREDO, Karina. Exeretic surgery in complicated peptic ulcer: An inopportune procedure. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2010, vol.49, n.1. ISSN 0034-7493.

INTRODUCTION: The aim of present study was to analyze the surgical treatment results in the complicated duodenal or gastric chronic peptic ulcer over 15 years. METHODS: A retrospective and descriptive study was conducted in patients presenting with complicated peptic ulcer by exeresis. Patients (n=45) were seen by some of us in the "Amalia Simoni" Clinical Surgical of Camaguey province from January, 1989 to December, 2004. RESULTS: Disease was more frequent in male sex (82,22%) and in ages from 36 to 50 years (46,67%). The 95,56% of patients treated suffered from duodenal ulcer and the main criterion for surgery was its unmanageable condition (62,22%). Endoscopy was very useful for diagnosis of this entity. All operated on underwent vagotomy with antrectomy; in the 68,89% we performed a Billroth's II anastomosis and in remainder (31,11% it was of Billroth I type. There was a similar figure of early complications related to techniques used and among them prevails the anastomosis bleeding and delay evacuation. There were more late complications in type Billroth II anastomosis than in the Billroth I. Surgical results were excellent and very good in the 89% of cases. The enterocolitis variant has the great percentage of non-satisfactory results (9,09%). Only two patients had poor results, although there wasn't operative mortality. CONCLUSIONS: This kind of surgery is indicated only in cases of complicated peptic ulcer. It is not the choice method in ulcer patients, but in its use it is necessary to know about different techniques and its use. Thus, we must to know a lot about this procedure.
