Wernicke's encephalopathy as a complication of gastroparesis after emergency partial antrectomy
Open biopsy with anterior ethmoidectomy, left maxillary antrectomy
, left total ethmoidectomy, left sphenoidectomy was performed, which showed nonseptate hyphae with right angle branching consistent with the diagnosis of mucormycosis (Figure 1).
Cranford et al (14) suggested a two-stage surgery in the form of truncal vagotomy and antrectomy
, along with tubal gastrostomy, duodenostomy, and jejunostomy, followed by restoration of gastrointestinal continuity after 3 to 4 weeks.
The first recorded instance of intraoperative testing may be the electromotor test developed by Burge and Vane in 1958 (1) to assess the completeness of vagotomy in patients undergoing antrectomy
because of gastric ulcer disease.
Surgeries of duodenal diverticulization should be carried out, when a large tissue of the first part of duodenum is lost; it includes closure of the duodenal injury, gastric antrectomy
with end-to-side gastrojejunostomy, tube duodenostomy and drainage the area of duodenal repair.
Destructive injuries proximal to the sphincter may require antrectomy
His method involves 6 peritoneal stripping procedures (called peritonectomies) to be performed at the initial surgery, including (1) greater omentectomy and splenectomy, (2) left upper quadrant peritonectomy, (3) right upper quadrant peritonectomy, (4) lesser omentectomy with cholecystectomy, (5) pelvic peritonectomy with rectosigmoid resection, and (6) antrectomy
Duodenal 'diverticulisation' is the most radical of these procedures with primary closure of the duodenal wound, a vagotomy, an antrectomy
with an end-to-side gastrojejunostomy, T-tube common bile duct drainage, and a tube duodenostomy.
Radical treatment of perforated Duodenal Ulcer by antrectomy
and truncal vagotomy is justified in the hands of experienced surgeon.
The patient was admitted to the hospital, where she received multiple transfusions for symptomatic anemia and eventually underwent gastric antrectomy
to control the hemorrhage.
1%) underwent truncal vagotomy with posterior gastrojejunostomy, 1 case underwent truncal vagotomy with antrectomy
Subsequently, the patient underwent antrectomy
with Billroth II anastomosis.
