Laparoscopy is an Available Alternative to Open Surgery in the Treatment of Perforated Peptic Ulcers

Jimmy Mena [6] | Mahmoud Sallam [6]


Abstract: Peptic ulcer disease (PUD), which affects 4 million people worldwide per year, has a perforation incidence of 14 per cent. Perforated gastric ulcers (PPUs) have a high morbidity and mortality. Surgical repair is the standard procedure for PPUs. This literature review provides a comparison of open and laparoscopic procedures as well as the latest updates to laparoscopic repair techniques of PPUs, and their causes, clinical features, clinical examination, laparoscopic and open surgical techniques, complications, and future prospects. is. Extensive literature research is completed and the latest meta-analysis and review on the topic is taken into consideration. There was no significant difference in postoperative mortality between open and laparoscopic treatments in patients with PPU. In addition, laparoscopic repair results in slightly less postoperative pain and less risk of wound infection. Laparoscopic repair may therefore be warranted as the treatment of choice.
