The overall configuration of the pylorus is more important than specific pyloric dimensions for(More)
The hydroelectric and pH alterations that produce the digestive irrigation previous to the surgery, have justified the fulfillment of this study, addressed to design a kind of solution to be used at pediatric patients. It has been used two solutions: one of them proposed by Davis (S_I), and the other (S_II), is Davis' solution modification, in which it is(More)
