Polypoid colonic metastases from gastric stump carcinoma: A case report.
Gastric polyp is frequently found in patients with bile reflux gastritis after gastric surgery.[sup][21] It is well known that gastric carcinomas may develop in the postgastrectomy stomach polyp.[sup][22] The presence of bile acids in the gastric remnant may contribute to mucosal injury and may cause the risk of stump carcinoma.[sup][23],[24] Our data demonstrated that patients with BS had a significantly higher incidence of gastric polyp than patients with BL and those patients with normal mucosa.
