Abstract
Duodenal ulcers are often complicated by obstruction, bleeding, or perforation. The eradication of Helicobacter pylori reduce ulcer recurrences and complications in patients with duodenal ulcer. However, there is controversy whether the eradication of H. pylori infection can resolve duodenal stenosis complicated by duodenal ulcers. After the eradication of H. pylori infection, duodenal stenosis complicated by duodenal ulcer was resolved in our case. Therefore, the evaluation and treatment for H. pylori infection are required in patients with duodenal stenosis complicated duodenal ulcers before endoscopic treatment or surgery.
Key Words: Duodenal obstruction, Duodenal ulcer, Helicobacter pylori
