Peptic Ulcer Disease Emergencies - #111
Dr. Ted Pappas, Professor and Chief of the Division of Advanced Oncologic and GI Surgery in the Department of Surgery at Duke Medicine and Vice Dean for Medical Affairs joins us for an overview of surgical emergencies due to peptic ulcer disease. Do you patch perforations and get out? When is an antiulcer procedure necessary?
How do you manage the perforated giant duodenal ulcer? Do you leave a drain? Is a postoperative imaging study needed? When do you operate on a patient with a bleeding duodenal ulcer? We go over these questions and more. This is not a Traumacast you want to miss.
