oa South African Medical Journal - Die post-operatiewe radiologiese verskynsels in 'n geval van prolaps van maagslymvlies in die duodenum
The post-operative radiological features in a case of circumferential prolapse of gastric mucosa into the duodenum are here descriptionbed for the first time, as far as we are aware. During 2 examinations, carried out 18 months after the operation, the bulb never exhibited the umbrella-like appearance seen pre-operatively; in the majority of views the bulb appeared quite normal, in some there was a small filling defect on the greater curvature side of the base. This indicates that a certain degree of prolapse is still present, but that the volume of prolapsing mucosa has been greatly reduced. The filling defect only appeared during contraction of the 'canalis egestorius' or, in other words, during antral systole. The symptoms have not recurred.
