Conrad Ramstedt performed the first pyloromyotomy for what is now called idiopathic hypertrophic pyloric stenosis 100 years ago. The intervening century has seen the management of this condition transformed but the underlying cause remains a mystery. This article reviews the treatment of this condition before and after the introduction of pyloromyotomy and the advances made subsequently towards understanding its cause. 
The treatment of pyloric stenosis: Evolution in practice
TLDR
The progression of surgical and medical treatments is reviewed in this article until, ultimately, Ramstedt's pyloromyotomy is reached, which has remained the gold‐standard procedure for over a century.
Advances in infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis
TLDR
In this review, the latest advances in IHPS regarding epidemiology, etiology, diagnostics and treatment will be discussed.
Olive without a cause: the story of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis
TLDR
The historical aspects of hypertrophic pyloric stenosis are reviewed, how and why it took so long for this not uncommon disease to be recognized are discussed, and the physicians who changed an often fatal disease into an easily diagnosed and treated minor affliction are highlighted.
A THENA ’ S PAGES Centennial of Pyloromyotomy
Shelf-life of scientific discoveries is usually less than few decades because science itself is an ever evolving discipline. Therefore, it is truly remarkable that pyloromyotomy described by Conrad
Centennial of Pyloromyotomy
TLDR
Athena is curious to know the impact of Ramstedt on the research and literature pertaining to HPS and searched Pubmed titles using the key words “pyloromyotomy”, or “hypertrophic pyloric stenosis”.
Cadaver Pylorus Simulates Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis
TLDR
Cadaver Pylorus Simulates Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis and its Applications in Surgical Research and Practice Open Access is presented.
Pyloric Therapies for Gastroparesis
TLDR
Opinion statementGastroparesis is a syndrome that can be difficult to treat effectively and likely represents the common clinical presentation of multiple underlying mechanisms, and efforts are ongoing to identify the subset of patients whose physiology best positions them to benefit from such therapy.
Beyond the firstborn son: epidemiology to enlighten the pathogenesis of hypertrophic pyloric stenosis.
TLDR
Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is a long-trusted friend of the pediatrician and pediatric surgeon, sufficiently characteristic that it predictably appears on medical school and board examinations.
Wrodzone i nabyte zwężenie odźwiernika u dzieci
TLDR
This manuscript presents the classification of GOO, epidemiology, etiology, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of both congenital and acquired pyloric stenoses, which is characterized by persistent nausea and vomiting which result in dehydration, electrolyte imbalances and weight loss.
Presentation and outcomes in hypertrophic pyloric stenosis: An 11‐year review
TLDR
To evaluate the trend in presentation and postoperative outcomes of infants with hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) over the last decade, a large number of patients with HPS were referred for surgery.

It is interesting to trace the evolution of the treatment of this condition through the methods which Hirschsprung of Copenhagen employed, or which he pursuaded surgeons to employ for him, and about which he wrote so carefully.

TLDR
It is suggested that a period of enteral feeding is required for the condition to become clinically evident and either the defect is only critical to the infant in the first 3 months of life and/or there are compensatory mechanisms that will circumvent the pyloric obstruction over time.
Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis.
TLDR
Successful imaging requires understanding of anatomic changes that occur in patients with this condition and plays an integral role in patient care, and accurate, rapid, noninvasive imaging techniques facilitate rapid referral of vomiting infants and prompt surgical treatment of more suitable surgical candidates.
Medical treatment of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis: should we always slice the "olive"?
TLDR
The high success rate of intravenous atropine therapy for IHPS suggests that this therapy is an effective alternative to pyloromyotomy if the length of the hospital stay and the necessity of continuing oralAtropine medication are accepted.

TLDR
The aim of this study was to confirm a clinical suspicion that the frequency of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is in decline, and there is a relation regarding to the timing of a change in recommendations concerning positioning of infants during sleep.

The Continuing Enigma of Pyloric Stenosis of Infancy: A Review
TLDR
Sharp declines in the incidence of the disease in Denmark and Sweden during the 1990s led to the hypothesis that infants sleeping in the prone position—a practice discouraged with some success by Scandinavian campaigns to reduce the frequency of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)—may also be at increased risk of pyloric stenosis, which may offer the first-ever possibility of reducing the frequency.
Recovery after open versus laparoscopic pyloromyotomy for pyloric stenosis: a double-blind multicentre randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Both open and laparoscopic pyloromyotomy are safe procedures for the management of pyloric stenosis, however, laparoscopy has advantages over open pyl oromyotomy, and it is recommended its use in centres with suitable laparoscope experience.
