Infantile Pyloric Stenosis

Arafat, A. E. A., Laparoscopic versus Open Pyloromyotomy in cases of Infantile Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis, , Cairo, Cairo University, 2016. Abstract

Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) is the most common surgical cause of vomiting in infancy
The technique of laparoscopic pyloromyotomy was introduced as a way to improve the cosmetic appearance and wound related complications while benefiting from the minimally invasive advantages of laparoscopy. A prospective study of 50 patients with IHPS was done.

The study revealed that this technique has excellent cosmesis, operative time and complications rate comparable to open approach, so it can be considered as an alternative technique for treatment of IHPS.
