As issues the scientific method of peptic ulcer affliction within the 1990's, the vast majority of authors agree at the significance of H. pylori eradication. furthermore, contemporary medical reviews recommend that H. pylori an infection may be linked to different gastroduodenal ailments, reminiscent of non ulcer dyspepsia and gastric melanoma.

The reason for this is not clear at present. e. a break in the mucosa such as erosions or ulceration, the negative predictive value (93%) was significant only in those aged under 45 years. If a screening strategy of the under 45 year group by serology were adopted, the endoscopic saving would be 66%. However, 7% of significant pathology would have been missed. In our study these were: (a) three cases of moderate oesophagitis and (b) two cases of moderate gastritis; (one patient had undergone gastric surgery for leiomyoma).

Pylori positive by at least one ofthe three detection methods immediately after surgery, the bacteria were no longer detectable after 3 months. This effect can hardly be attributed to the administration of antibiotics. The reason for the lack of organism eradication in two patients remains unknown. It should be mentioned, however, that both patients were under 30 years of age. Independent of the perioperative administration of antibiotics, there is a significant decline in the gastric metaplasia rate in the duodenum after PGY.

It is possible, however, that the infection along with the inflammation of the duodenal mucosa has an effect on the extent of gastric metaplasia [33]. This could result in a vicious circle, which could ultimately lead to a spread of the gastric metaplasia on the one hand, and to inflammation caused by the H. pylori, on the other, until the integrity of the mucosa is finally lost. This in connection with other ulcerogenic 46 M. Biichler et al. factors might possibly lead to duodenal ulcer. This hypothesis is corroborated by observations that H.
