Billroth II anastomosis was performed for all patients who underwent distal gastrectomy, and Roux-en-Y anastomosis was performed for all patients who underwent total gastrectomy.
In our study, 54 patients (71.05%) had Billroth I anastomosis and 19 patients (25%) had Billroth II anastomosis. The frequency of ulcer development was 90.5% in Billroth I anastomosis and 10.5% in Billroth II anastomosis.
The majority of works suggest that patients with Billroth II anastomosis are more prone to developing endoscopic ulceration than patients with Billroth I, probably due to the increased bile reflux [12].
This technique has also been effectively used for Billroth II anastomosis.[4] We established gastroduodenal anastomosis using the circular stapler before resection of the stomach with the linear stapler, which also meant that we needed to use only one linear stapler.
Stapling technique for performing Billroth II anastomosis after distal gastrectomy.
In clinical practice, continuous jejunal interpositionon was observed fewer surgical complications and mortality compared with Billroth II anastomosis group and isolated jejunum interposition group.
Several intracorporeal anastomosis techniques have been reported, including Billroth II anastomosis using linear staplers, beta-shaped Roux-en-Y reconstruction, overlap method, and semi-loop after total gastrectomy and inverted T-shaped anastomosis using linear staplers [20-24].
Carcinoma antrum cases: -Subtotal gastrectomy with 18 56.25 Billroth II anastomosis -Anterior gastrojejunostomy 8 25 -Feeding Jejunostomy 6 18.75 For duodenal ulcer cases: 18 patients (100%) underwent truncal vagotomy with posterior gastrojejunostomy.
Carcinoma antrum cases: 18 patients (56.25%) had operable disease underwent Subtotal gastrectomy with Billroth II anastomosis and in 8 patients (25 %) growth was fixed and they underwent anterior gastrojejunostomy alone and 6 patients (18.75%) underwent feeding jejunostomy alone.
One of the cases with bleeding ulcerative growth which was reported as chronic inflammatory lesion in histopathology report of endoscopic biopsy proved to be intestinal type of adenocarcinoma after surgery, where subtotal gastrectomy with Billroth II anastomosis was undertaken in view of bleeding ulcerative growth.
