Ulcers Surgery in Hyderabad
Ulcer is an open sore which is formed externally or internally due to the scarring of the skin or mucous membrane. This type of injury to the cells fails to heal. Ulcers have been broadly classified into different categories based on their location and causes, but the most common ones are peptic ulcers.
Gastric ulcer or stomach ulcer and duodenal ulcer are two major types of peptic ulcers depending upon which organ has developed sores or ulcers.
Stomach ulcers (gastric ulcer) are sores that form in the inner lining of the stomach or the small intestine. The stomach houses hydrochloric acid which helps in digestion of food. A mucus membrane is present in the stomach to guard the organ from the harmful effects of the acid. Ulcers are formed when the mucus layer becomes ineffective towards the acid; HCl scarrs the walls of the stomach and sores are formed.
Similarly, if the mucus lining in the small intestine is destroyed, the condition is referred to as duodenal ulcer. The bacteria H.pylori has been found to be the causing agent that destroy the mucus lining of the organs. A person can have either out both of the conditions. Certain medicines like NSAIDs or other painkillers can also cause ulcers. Old age, smoking, alcoholism, trauma or physical injury are the other contributing factors.
