SUTURE PLICATION OF PERFORATED DUODENAL ULCER
AbstractAbstract: Seventy-five cases of perforated duodenal ulcer were managedby suture plication alone. Perforated acute ulcers have a better ultimateoutlook in terms, of mortality and morbidity as compared with perforatedchronic ulcers. It is suggested that chronic duodenal ulcer cases should havedefinitive surgery at the time of perforation or soon after the recovery,whereas acute ulcers should be primarily managed by suture plicationalone. Where dyspeptic symptoms persist for more than 3 months in acuteulcers after suture plication definitive surgery must be done at the earliestopportunity.
