Today surgeons are performing fewer elective ulcer surgeries, as H2 receptor blockers and the eradication of Helicobacter pylori represent a major step in treatment of this disease. Nevertheless, patients with complications and those resistant to medical therapy should be offered surgical options. The laparoscopic management of these complications is an alternative to open surgery, if applied with appropriate patient selection. The authors report a case with repeated bleeding and duodenal narrowing due to a duodenal ulcer. The patient was treated by totally intraabdominal laparoscopic truncal vagotomy, antrectomy and Billroth-II reconstruction--this probably being the first performed and publicized operation in Hungarian literature. The technique this operation and common perioperative problems based on existing literature are reviewed. The benefits of the minimally invasive approach were clearly evident. The authors believe that minimally invasive approaches will renew the interest in definitive surgery for the treatment of ulcer disease.
