Objective: To evaluate the feasibility and long-term results of early gastric surgery for patients with isolated gastric stricture following acid corrosion injury. Materials and Methods: Upper gastrointestinal (UGI) series was routinely performed around the 4th week after acid corrosion injury. Patients with gastric stricture and no risk of delayed esophageal stricture underwent early solitary gastric surgery, which was defined when performance of the procedure took place within 2 months of the injury. Results: From June 1988 to June 2000, 35 of 378 patients with acid corrosion injury developed isolated gastric stricture. Twenty-four (68.6%) lesions were located in the antrum, and 11 (31.4%) in the gastric body. Postprandial vomiting presented earlier for the antral stricture group (17.6 ± 1.1 versus 25.4 ± 3.4 days after injury; p = 0.005). The UGI series was performed from 16 to 41 days after injury (average 25 days). Of the 35 acid corrosion injury patients in this study, 4 were excluded because of late referrals to our institution or the patient's hesitation which resulted in delayed surgery. The remaining 31 patients underwent gastric surgery 35.7 ± 3.2 days after ingestion (34.6 ± 3.6 and 38.1 ± 3.4 days for cases of antral and gastric body stricture, respectively). Surgical procedures consisted of hemigastrectomy (n = 16), antrectomy (n = 2), gastroenterostomy (n = 2), subtotal gastrectomy (n = 6), and total gastrectomy (n = 5). There were 4 cases of postoperative complications (12.9%) including adhesion ileus (n = 2), wound infection (n = 1), and massive, postoperative UGI bleeding (n = 1). Surgical mortality was zero. All patients tolerated oral intake well after surgery. During the minimum follow-up period of 1 year, 1 patient developed esophagojejunostomy stenosis, which was resolved by dilation, and there was 1 case of dumping syndrome, which was treated by diet control. Conclusion: Early surgery correction is feasible and safe if patients with isolated gastric stricture following acid corrosion injury are carefully selected. All patients in our study recovered early, with a low morbidity rate.
