Endoscopic resection of an obstructing antral web in an infant

Endoscopic resection of an obstructing antral web in an infant

American Journal of Digestive Diseases 23((5 SUPPL) PAGE=6S-8S): NO PAGE

An antral web was discovered during the work-up of postcibal vomiting in an 18 mo. old infant. An omphalocele repair was performed previously and altered intraperitoneal anatomic relationships favored an endoscopic approach to web resection. The method devised was successful in removing the web; 6 wk later, laparotomy was necessary because of recurrent vomiting. At surgery the web was completely gone, although a circumferential ulcer was now present at the site of the prior web. Antroplasty was curative. An endosopic approach to antral webs is feasible and may in certain cases obviate laparotomy.
