Proximal Gastric Vagotomy Summary

Description: Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.

Also Known As: Vagotomy, Proximal Gastric; Gastric Vagotomies, Proximal; Gastric Vagotomy, Proximal; Highly Selective Vagotomies; Highly Selective Vagotomy Show All >>
