Anterior gastric wall stapling combined with posterior truncal vagotomy has been used as a new and adequate gastric acid output-reducing procedure. Severing the posterior vagal trunk as well as stapling the anterior gastric wall could impair gastric emptying. In this study, the gastric emptying rate for solid food, using a radionuclide technique, has been evaluated in 2 series of canine experiments. Compared to the results after conventional highly selective vagotomy, a temporary delay in the gastric emptying rate could be found after this new procedure, however, completely normalizing 1 year later.
