ABSTRACT

Detailed discussions of the results of therapy of peptic ulcer usually have originated from single large hospitals or clinics. This book is an exception since it represents a cooperative retrospective study of the results of surgery for ulcer in 12 Veterans' hospitals.

By the same token, the original material which is collected and presented in 166 tables and 63 figures provides a valuable analysis of original data. The accompanying text is brief and clear, the bibliography adequate.

For example, an extremely limited gastrectomy with vagotomy apparently is emerging in this study as the most satisfactory operation for ulcer. Also, the recurrence rate after operations for duodenal ulcer
