This study investigated the efficacy and safety of H. pylori eradication therapy for elderly patients. Retrospective investigation of 1271 cases (median age: 61 years, 730 male) of H. pylori infection was performed to compare clinical indications and outcomes among the younger group (75 years old). Chronic gastritis (77.0%) and gastric and/or duodenal ulcer (16.4%) were the most frequent indications for eradication therapy in the cohort. The respective eradication and AE rates for the first and second treatment regimens were 92.1% (1044 of 1133 cases) and 9.1% (103 of 1133 cases) and 84.2% (123 of 146 cases) and 8.9% (13...

CONCLUSION: Over the 23 years studied, the causes of NVUGB changed, probably because the population was increasingly elderly population and because of the use of anticoagulants and better therapeutic approaches to chronic duodenal ulcers. The use of emergency surgical hemostasis reduced, but mortality rate did not significantly change between the two specific periods. PMID: 31258140 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Stepanyan SA, Petrosyan AA, Safaryan HH, Yeghiazaryan HH, Aleksanyan AY, Hakobyan VM, Papazyan KT, Mkrtchyan MH Abstract Introduction: Perforation is a dangerous complication of peptic ulcer disease and requires emergency surgical treatment. In recent decades laparoscopic repair of duodenal perforation has been widely used in emergency abdominal surgery. Aim: To analyze laparoscopic and open surgical treatment of 120 consecutive patients with perforated duodenal ulcer. Material and methods: The study included a group of 120 consecutive patients, operated on for perforated duodenal ulcer in a single...

Authors: Ban T, Kawakami H, Kubota Y, Nanashima A, Yano K, Sato Y Abstract Even in the era of Helicobacter pylori eradication and proton pump inhibitors, peptic ulcer remains an important disease. Stricture due to a duodenal ulcer in the healing stage is a well-known etiology of benign gastric outlet obstruction. However, a duodenal ulcer-induced submucosal tumor-like change with gastric outlet obstruction is a very rare manifestation. We herein present a rare case of a patient with deteriorating symptoms of gastric outlet obstruction caused by an unusual manifestation of a lumen-occupying protruding duodenal ulcer...
