6 Peptic ulcer Pathogenesis: For both Duodenal & Gastric Ulcers: Infection w/ H. pylori:Decreases resistance of mucus layer from acid permeation (hydrophobicity)Increase acid secretionSlow duodenal emptyingReduced both duodenal and gastric bicarbonate secretion
7 Clinical Manifestation Abdominal pain:Due to irritation of afferent nerves w/in the ulcer by the acid or due to peristaltic waves passing through the ulcerDuodenal: colicky or burning pain relieved w/ food intakeGastric: gnawing or burning usually during or after eating.N/VWeight lossEpigastric tenderness
8 Peptic ulcer Pathogenesis: Effects of NSAIDs Decreases ProstagladinProstaglandin – inhibits acid secretion, stimulates mucus and HCO3 secretion and mucosal blood flowZollinger-Ellison Syndrome (1%):Massive secretion of HCL due to ectopic gastrin production from non-beta islet cell tumor (gastrinoma)Associated w/ type I (MEN) PPP20% multiple, 2/3 malignant, w/ slow growingParietal cell mass is increased> gastrin 3-6 x the normal

45 Complications after stomach resection: Early – dehiscence, stenosis of anastomosis, bleeding, pancreatitis, obstructive icterus, affection of neighbour tissuesLate - days, weeks- early dumping syndrome- late dumping syndrome- incoming crankle syndrome- outcoming crankle syndrome- ulcer in anastomosis or in outcoming crankle
46 Early Complications (1) 1. Failure of the stomach or stomach remnant to empty occurs after any procedure. It was formerly common after vagotomy and drainage. Causes are: A. Prolonged paralysis of stomach (doubtful)B. Edema at a stomaC. Fluid and electrolyte disorder, especially hypokalaemia.Management is conservative with NG suction, fluid, electrolyte and nutritional replacement.
47 Early Complications (2) 2. Intestinal obstruction.Causes are:A. Adhesive.B. As a consequences:(a) Twisting of the loop of a gastrojejunostomy after polya gastrectomy.(b) Herniation of loops through a mesenteric defect.(c) Retrograde intussusception of the efferent loop of a gastrojejunostomy (rare).Prophylaxis: avoid causes – such as mesenteric cul de sacs or holesTreatment: operative
48 Early Complications (3) 3. Fistulae. Can occur after any operation, which involves a suture line. Most usual sites are:1. After polya gastrectomyi. Duodenal stumpii. Pancreases from trying to dissect out adifficult ulcer2. Occasionally at a Pyloroplasty
49 Early Complications (4) 4. Acute pancreatitis. May follow any procedure. Its etiology is unknown, but some cases are traumatic
50 Late Complications (1) Anastomotic and recurrent ulceration Causes: Inadequate resection of parietal cell mass.Isolated antrum left after polya gastrectomy.Zollinger – Ellison syndrome.Incomplete vagotmy.Persistent suture in the anastomosis. More usually this is merely a suture exposed as a consequence of ulceration from another cause.Prophylaxis: adequate primary treatment.Management is related to cause and requires investigation to ascertain the level of acid secretion or the completeness of vagotomy. Recurrence after vagotomy is best managed by polya gastrectomy.
51 Late Complications (1) 2. Gastrojejunocolic fistulae. Occurs when a recurrent ulcer after gastrojejual anastomosis penetrates into the colon. It should arouse the suspicion of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.Clinical features: Severe diarrhea occurs due to enteritis caused by cronic contents passing directly into the small bowel and acidosis, dehydration, potassium loss, anaemia and cachexia will result in death if the fastula is not interrupted surgically.Treatment:1. Good risk patient. Excision of the gastric, jejunal and colonic components and the construction of a higher gastrectomy.2. Poor risk patient. A staged procedure:(a) Stage 1: Proximal colostomy which, diverts the faecal stream from the fistula and thus stops the enteritis.(b) Stage 2: Excision of fistula and its visceral components and the construction of a higher gastrectomy and colonic anastomosis.(c) Stage 3: Closure of colostomy.
52 Early dumping syndrome: group of symptoms approved shortly after mealappears after BII resectionvasomotoric sy. - face redness, fall of blood pressure, dizzinessGI sy. - vomiting, diarrhoeaTh.: diet, no sugar, low quantities of food, change BII to BI resection
53 Late dumping syndrome: hypoglycaemia (sugar is not enough digested)appears after BII resectionweakness, perspiration, dizziness, tremor cca 3h after mealTh.: no sugar, change BII to BI resection
54 AnemiaPartial gastrectomy and polya reconstruction interferes with duodenal absorption of iron and a macrocytic anemia may resultMore rarely, sufficient stomach has been removed to cause failure of release of intrinsic factor and thus a macrocytic anemiaMalnutrition may contribute to both.
55 Weight loss and its complications Particulary after partial gastrectomy when patients are unwilling to eat sufficiently, weight loss is commonSevere malnutrition is rare, but there is an increased risk of nutrition-associated diseases such as tuberculosis.
56 Bilious vomitingAny operation which, destroys or bypasses the pylorus allows bile to reach the stomach.Not only does this produce atrophic gastritis but also it may be associated with bilious vomiting.This is more likely after a polya gastrectomy where characteristically a patient eats a meal and some to 10 to 20 minutes later vomits bile only.In severe cases, either normal anatomy should be restored or the bile diverted more distally into the intestine.
57 DiarrheaApart from the dumping syndrome, all vagotomies except highly selective ones seem to cause diarrheaMatters are made worse if cholecystectomy has been done or is subsequently done
58 Acute Gastritis (erosive) Stress erosions are usually multiple, small punctuate lesion in the proximal acid secreting portion of the stomachClinical Settings:Severe illness, trauma, burns (Cushing ulcer) or sepsisDue to (-) mucosal defense (ischemia)Drug and Chemical ingestionAspirin / NSAIDsCNS trauma:Increase gastrin ---> elevated acid secretionCurling ulcer
60 Acute Gastritis Treatment: NPO NGT / Saline lavage Antacids / omeprazole / sucralfateIntra-arterial infusion of vasopressinSurgery --> if 6-8 units over 24 hrsMortality ---> 40%Near total gastrectomyVagotomy + pyloroplasty + over sewing of bleederPartial gastrectomy + vagotomy
61 Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome (Gastrinoma) Symptoms tends to be more severe, unrelenting and less responsive to therapy.Clinical Manifestation:PainDiarrheaSteatorrheaDiagnosis:Acid secreting studies (50meq/hr)UGISRadio-immuno assay for serum Gastrin levelDiff: a) Pernicious anemiab) Renal insufficiencyc) Antral gastrin hyperplasia or hyperfunctionCT scan and angiography to localize gastrinomaVenous sampling
