Conditions Related to Pyloroplasty
Pyloric stenosis is the most common of the related conditions to pyloroplasty. This condition causes the muscular lower stomach to thicken. Food can no longer efficiently pass through the stomach into the small intestine.
Pyloroplasty is used to cure this related condition by widening the stomach for food to pass through.
Other related conditions to pyloroplasty include peptic ulcer and other gastrointestinal diseases that block food from passing through the stomach. The disorder can be readily diagnosed with ultrasound or a barium swallow.
