They account for 3-26% of benign epithelial gastric polyps and are mostly singular, smaller than 2 cm, can be seen in all areas of the stomach but are more often localized in the antrum
Further, this species can be readily differentiated based on female genitalia; ductus bursae lacks spines and antrum
is weakly developed.
A set of variable sized sturdy and sharp bone curettes of little curvature in the end was effectively employed to expose small antrum
, aditus and attic.
In the experimental group, a progressive water injection method was employed to determine the spatial relationship between the jejunal feeding tube and the antrum
. Specifically, the tube was first positioned at a depth of 55 cm.
Anatomical/surgical factors of weight regain after LSG includes an initial large sleeve, incompletely resected fundus, and a large remnant antrum
, whereas those after LGP includes dilatation or gastric prolapse of the gastric plication as observed in the current series [5, 18].
The variability in the outcomes of esophageal motility may be attributable to the timing of postoperative follow-up, the variability of surgical techniques, the different bougie sizes, and the different dissections from pylorus, thus creating a sleeve with variable distensibility and intraluminal pressure with, in part, the preservation of the antrum
. The percentage of peristaltic normal contractions increased postoperatively and is not statistically significant at 3 months  but statistically significant later .
In the course of surgery due to the presence of the 5 cm x 6 cm mass in the lesser curvature of gastric antrum
and to obtain a 2 cm safety margin for the mass resection, subtotal gastrectomy was evitable.

, as indicated by the arrow in axial view (a), while its position in relation to the rigid plate and screws on the zygomatic buttress can be seen clearly in 3-D image (b).
In the control group, the SP-immunoreactive nerve fibres were more numerous in the circular muscle layer and they constitute 4.82 [+ or -] 0.16 in the antrum
, 3.65 [+ or -] 0.16 in the corpus, and 6.07 [+ or -] 0.13 in the pylorus (Table 1, Figures 6(a)-6(c)).
Repeat endoscopy at our institution on day +864 redemonstrated GAVE (Figure 2) and APC was again used to treat lesions in the gastric antrum
. Prednisone was increased from 5 mg daily to 10 mg daily due to a suspicion that this may be related to GVHD.
We did a gastrotomy on the anterior surface of the pyloric antrum
. The polyp was wide-based (Figure 3), occluding almost completely the pylorus and the duodenum only leaving a space for a hand's little finger to pass.
The formation of a 8x7x5 cm ulcero-vegetating tumor that was located in the lesser curvature of the corpus and antrum
, and was 5 cm from the proximal surgical margin and 5.5 cm from the distal surgical margin was macroscopically observed in the gastrectomy material.
