Abstract

Early gastric cancer was detected in 23 patients, 15 of whom had acute complications of either hemorrhage or perforation. Cases with acute complications often have a more favorable prognosis as a carcinoma may be identified while still in its pre-invasive stage. The gravity of the complication should not result in the employ of limited diagnostic procedures (e.g. endoscopy without multiple biopsies) or the use of incomplete therapeutic measures (e.g. simple suture of a perforated ulcer). The treatment of hemorrhagic gastric ulcers and perforated ulcers is discussed in greater detail. The need for a continuous follow-up of these patients with gastric ulcers is emphasized. This should include periodic endoscopy examination and multiple biopsies, even when a gastric ulcer has been apparently cured by medical treatment.
