Pyloroplasty

Side Effects of Pyloroplasty

Doctors consider this procedure to be safe and effective, but there are always risks with surgery. The side effects of pyloroplasty can be caused by a reaction to anesthesia, common surgical risks and complications during the procedure.
 
These are some of the side effects of pyloroplasty:
  • Breathing problems caused by anesthesia
  • Negative reaction to anesthesia medications
  • Bleeding and infection
  • Stomach leakage
  • Diarrhea that is a long-term condition
  • Malnutrition
  • Intestinal damage
  • Organ damage/tear
  • Hernia
 
Many infants will vomit after the surgery for a few days but this is not a complication. The muscle swelling takes a few days to subside and then the food starts to pass into the intestine and vomiting ceases.
 
It’s important to fully understand the risks and side effects of pyloroplasty before undergoing the procedure. Schedule an appointment with a doctor at Florida Hospital to learn more.
