Prognosis for Stomal ulcer
Prognosis for Stomal ulcer:
Significantly larger amounts of acid, a lower pH, and a greater time with a pH less than 2 were found in the gastric pouches of patients who developed stomal ulcer after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. All patients had a perforated staple line. Successful closure of the staple line significantly decreased acid production and pH in the gastric pouch when tested before and after remedial operation with healing of stomal ulcers.
