Abstract

Following acid ingestion, the mortality of operative intervention is clearly related to late recognition of perforation. Experimentally, fiber-optic endoscopy can be used to accurately predict the depth of gastric injury. Operative intervention can be undertaken before gross perforation. Flexible endoscopy should be performed upon admission and repeated at… (More)
