Gastroenterology

The first description of duodenal ulcer was given by George Erhard Hamberger (1697-1755) in 1746 and an account of a perforating ulcer was given by Jacopo Penada (1748-1828) in 1793. A comprehensive study was undertaken by Julius Krauss of Berlin in 1865. A modern approach to the pathogenesis and causation was made byBerkeley George Andrew Moynihan (1865–1936) of Leeds in 1910. Duodenal ulcers in infants within the first few months of life were reported by A.M. Thomas in 1924 and by J.A.L. Louden in 1925. Postmortem findings in these infants were later published in The Lancet. Pyloric resection was performed by Brooklyn surgeon, William Leon (b 1888) in 1938, and gastrojejunostomy became one of the commonest forms of treatment in the early 1900s. Section of supra-diaphragmaic vagus nerves as treatment was performed by a Chicago surgeon, Lester Reynold Dragstedt (1893–1975) and Frederick Mitchum Owens (b 1913) in 1943. Campylobacter pylori was shown to be the cause of gastritis and probably duodenal ulcers by an Australian, Barry J. Marshall, in 1984. This bacterium was renamed Helicobacter pylori.
