Surgical Repair of Hemorrhaging Duodenal Ulcer - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical exhibit demonstrates the surgical repair of a hemorrhaging duodenal ulcer. Two images at left detail the initial effort made via esophagogastroduodenoscopy to cauterize the ulcer and slow the bleeding. Two images at right show an open laparotomy approach to suture the bleed. A cut is made in the duodenum to remove hemorrhage blood and suture the ulcer closed.
