Abstract
Between 1919 and 1941, 71 infants suffering from pyloric hypertrophy were o perated on by Ramstedt performing an extramucosal pyloromyotomy. Of these p atients, we could identify and investigate 41. Four out of 31 long-term sur viving patients have been Billroth Il-resected (BH). One of these needed re -resection because of an anastomotic ulcer. None of all the long-term survi vors developed a carcinoma. Two patients were treated conservatively becaus e of gastritis and one because of esophagitis. All patients. except the one requiring re-resection and one suffering from maldigestion, were absolutel y free of complaints, The average time between operation and re-checking wa s 57 years. The oldest patient was examined 72 years after the operation.
