Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Gastric erosive changes were investigated in 1,142 non-cirrhotic and 273 cirrhotic subjects (61% post-necrotic and 39% alcoholic), who underwent diagnostic esophagogastroduodenoscopy in our Department between June, 1985 and May, 1986. Esophageal varices were classified according to Beppu et al. (7) and Fisher's exact probability test was employed for the statistical analysis of the results. The significance of erosions remains obscure, and further investigations are needed to clarify and define the nature of gastric chronic erosive mucosal changes.
