59 Possible Causes for Prepyloric Ulcer

  • Duodenal Ulcer

    Patients with prepyloric ulcers had a risk of gastric cancer that was close to the expected value.[] An upper endoscopy was also performed at the time of ERCP and revealed a large prepyloric gastric ulcer extending into the duodenal bulb where there was a 30 30 mm perforated[] Only those cases in whom the site of duodenal ulcer was known were included in the analysis. Patients with prepyloric and postbulbar ulcer were excluded from the study.[]

  • Peptic Ulcer

    Duodenal ulcers and some prepyloric gastric ulcers are associated with an increased amount or hyperacidity of the gastric juice.[] While it is known that gastric hydrochloric acid and pepsin are responsible for ulcer formation, it is not known why mucosal resistance to them should become impaired.[]

  • Vagotomy with Pyloroplasty

    Prepyloric and secondary gastric ulcers were excised for microscopy; all were benign.[] In a consecutive series of patients with uncomplicated prepyloric, pyloric, or duodenal ulcer, 39 patients were randomly allocated to selective proximal vagotomy with pyloroplasty[] […] with prepyloric ulcer.[]

  • Zollinger Ellison Syndrome

    A 49-year-old woman was diagnosed in 1985 as having pheochromocytoma because of hypertension with high levels of plasma catecholamine concentration and 24-hour urine excretion of vanillyl-mandelic acid and metanephrine together with a right adrenal mass. The excised tumor cells had fine granular basophilic[…][]

  • Anastomotic Ulcer

    Prepyloric ulcer- Treatment is similar to duodenal ulcer, with vagotomy and antrectomy the preferred approach.[] […] recurrence rate in postpyloric and duodenal ulcer seems to be lower after highly selective vagotomies than during long term maintenance treatment, prepyloric ulcers are treated[] Operative treatment of gastric ulcer depends on the location of the ulcer: Antral ulcer- Distal gastrectomy with Billroth I or II reconstruction is recommended for most patients[]

  • Propantheline

    Fifty-eight adult outpatients with endoscopically verified gastric, prepyloric or duodenal ulcers completed a double-blind trial of treatment with either cimetidine, 1 g daily[]

  • Gastric Ulcer

    On admission, clinical assessment suggested a visceral perforation and an urgent CT scan demonstrated a perforated prepyloric ulcer.[] Patients with prepyloric ulcers had a risk of gastric cancer that was close to the expected value.[] The cavity exploration showed a perforated gastric ulcer at the anterior surface of the prepyloric area.[]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    Endoscopic inspection had revealed a rigid gastric wall and a large irregularly shaped ulcer in the prepyloric antrum.[]

  • Eosinophilic Gastritis

    At this point of time, upper GI endoscopy showed prepyloric clean-based ulcer 1 1 cm with positive rapid urease test.[] One month later, upper GI endoscopy showed no change in the size of the prepyloric ulcer with positive rapid urease test.[] On follow-up endoscopy, ulcer in the prepyloric site was persistent with no sign of healing and positive rapid urease test.[]

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

    Benign prepyloric ulcer accounted for 6.41% cases and concomitant duodenal ulcer and benign pyloric ulcer were seen in 3.61%.[] The commonest cause of UGIB was duodenal ulcer (DU) which accounted for 57.57% cases. Portal hypertension was responsible for bleed in only 12.83%.[]
