Gastrojejunocolic fistula after gastric surgery for duodenal ulcer: case report

, : Gastrojejunocolic fistula after gastric surgery for duodenal ulcer: case report. Il Giornale di Chirurgia 27(10): 360-362

Gastrojejunocolic fistulae, a late complication of gastroenterostomy, are presently uncommon. Patients can present with symptoms of a fistula 20 years or more after their original gastric surgery. The knowledge of this rare condition can allow prevention, through a better operative strategy and a medical treatment at the phase of stomal ulcer with proton pump inhibitor and Helicobacter pylori eradication. We present a case of gastrojejunocolic fistula and discuss the modern management of this condition. Its etiological, clinical, and surgical features were briefly discussed.

In the present study, we examined Na+-dependent Pi transpor...
