Objectives. To improve the treatment results of elderly and senile patients with giant ulcers of the stomach and duodenum.
Methods. Operative treatment analysis of 61 patients (22,3%) out of 274 patients with giant stomach and duodenum ulcers was performed. The patients were divided into 2 groups. The main group included 148 patients, 133 (89,9%) of them were of old age and 15 (10,1%) of senile age correspondently. 126 patients of young and mean age were included in the comparison group. The average age in the main group made up 66,15,6; in the comparison group 46,49,4. 75 (50,6%) patients in the main group had ulcers of the stomach; in the comparison group 62 (49,2%) patients had it. Duodenum ulcers in the main group were revealed in 73 patients (49,4%), and in the comparison group in 64 patients (50,8%).
Results. The main indications for the operation in both groups were hemorrhage and perforation.
25 (16,9%)out of 148 patients underwent surgical treatment: 18 patients (72%) with duodenum ulcer and 7 patients (28%) with gastric ulcer. There were 7 planned operations (28%) and 18 emergent operations (72%). The choice of operation volume in elderly patients depended on condition severity grounded by the character of the accompanying pathology, the degree of poly-organ insufficiency expression and blood loss degree.
In the comparison group 36 patients (28,6%) out of 126 were operated on. 11 patients (17,7%) out of 64 with duodenum ulcers underwent surgical interventions. 25 patients (40,3%) out of 62 with gastric ulcers were operated on. The majority of patients were operated on emergently 23 patients (63,9%) and urgently 7 patients (19,4%); there were 6 (16,7%) planned operations.
Postoperative lethality in the main group made up 16%, 4 out of 25 patients died. Postoperative lethality in the comparison group made up 2,8%, 1 patient died.
Conclusions. Minimal according to their volume surgeries in elderly and senile patients with severe accompanying pathology in case of life-threatening complications are less risky and should be the method of choice in the given category of patients.
