If there is extensive destruction then a partial gastrectomy may be performed with a Billroth I anastomosis if there is enough duodenum or a Billroth II, gastrojejunostomy if the proximal duodenum is also damaged.
1] Several techniques have been described for performing Billroth I anastomosis after distal gastrectomy using a circular stapler.
We describe a Billroth I gastrectomy and Billroth I anastomosis in which we introduced a CDH stapler (Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA) through the part of the stomach to be resected.
This technique reduces the time needed to create the Billroth I anastomosis, is reliable and safe, and should be used more often in everyday work.
Application of the circular stapler in creating a Billroth I anastomosis after distal resection of the stomach has been described, but it is not widely used.
