  5. 5.  In keeping with the limited sensory apparatus of the alimentary tract, gastric disorders give rise to symptoms similar to esophageal disorders, primarily heartburn and vague epigastric pain.  Gastric mucosa and bleeding, hematemesis or melena may ensue.  Unlike esophageal bleeding,  blood quickly congeals and turns brown in the acid environment of the stomach lumen.  Vomited blood hence has the appearance of coffee grounds.
  6. 6. Gastritis: is simply defined as inflammation of the gastric mucosa. By far the majority of cases are chronic gastritis, but occasionally, distinct forms of acute gastritis are encountered. 1. Erosive gastritis caused by a noxious irritant 2. Reflux gastritis from exposure to bile and pancreatic fluids 3. Hemorrhagic gastritis 4. Infectious gastritis 5. Gastric mucosal atrophy
  7. 7. Acute Gastritis Acute gastritis is an acute mucosal inflammatory process, usually of a transient nature. The inflammation may be accompanied by hemorrhage into the mucosa and, in more severe circumstances, by sloughing of the superficial mucosal epithelium (erosion). Pathogenesis: The pathogenesis is poorly understood, in part because normal mechanisms for gastric mucosal protection are not totally clear.

  13. 13. 15 Histopathology usually demonstrates increased numbers of eosinophils
  14. 14.  Depending on the severity of the anatomic changes, acute gastritis may be entirely asymptomatic,  Epigastric to left upper quadrant  Frequently described as burning  May radiate to the back  Usually occurs 1-5 hours after meals  May be relieved by food, antacids (duodenal), or vomiting (gastric)  Typically follows a daily pattern specific to patient  vomiting, or may present as overt hematemesis, melena, and potentially fatal blood loss.
  15. 15.  Often, a diagnosis can be made based on the patient's description of his or her symptoms, but other methods may be used to verify:  Blood tests:  Blood cell count  Presence of H. pylori  Pregnancy  Liver, kidney, gallbladder, or pancreas functions  Urinalysis  Stool sample, to look for blood in the stool  X-rays  Endoscopy, to check for stomach lining inflammation and mucous erosion  Stomach biopsy, to test for gastritis and other conditions 17
  16. 16. Chronic Gastritis is defined as the presence of chronic mucosal inflammatory changes leading eventually to mucosal atrophy and epithelial metaplasia. In the western world, the prevalence of histologic changes indicative of chronic gastritis exceeds 50% in the later decades of adult life.

  28. 28.  Ulcers are defined as a breach in the mucosa of the alimentary tract that extends through the muscularis mucosa into the submucosa or deeper.  This is to be contrasted to erosions, in which there is a breach in the epithelium of the mucosa only.  Erosions may heal within days, whereas healing of ulcers takes much longer.  Although ulcers may occur anywhere in the alimentary tract, none are as prevalent as the peptic ulcers that occur in the duodenum and stomach. GASTRIC ULCERATION
  29. 29.  Focal, acutely developing gastric mucosal defects may appear after severe stress and are designated stress ulcers.  Generally, there are multiple lesions located mainly in the stomach and occasionally in the duodenum  Severe trauma, including major surgical procedures, sepsis, or grave illness of any type  Extensive burns (the ulcers are then referred to as Curling ulcers)  Traumatic or surgical injury to the central nervous system or an intracerebral hemorrhage (the ulcers are then called Cushing ulcers)  Chronic exposure to gastric irritant drugs, particularly NSAIDs and corticosteroids

  33. 33.  Acute stress ulcers are usually circular and small (less than 1 cm in diameter).  The ulcer base is frequently stained a dark brown by the acid digestion of extruded blood.  They may occur singly, but more often they are multiple, located throughout the stomach and duodenum  Microscopically, acute stress ulcers are abrupt lesions, with essentially unremarkable adjacent mucosa. Multiple stress ulcers of the stomach, highlighted by the dark digested blood in their bases. MORPHOLOGY
  34. 34.  An ulcer is distinguished from an erosion by its penetration through the muscularis mucosa or the muscular coating of the gastric or duodenal wall occurring as a result of acid and pepsin attack  The lesion of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is a disruption in the mucosal layer of Sites:  Duodenum (DU)  Stomach (GU)  Oesophagus  Gastro-enterostomy stoma  Related to ectopic gastric mucosa (e.g. in Meckel’s diverticulum)
  35. 35.  Peptic ulcers are remitting, relapsing lesions that are most often diagnosed in middle-aged to older adults, but they may first become evident in young adult life.  Genetic or racial influences appear to play little or no role in the causation of peptic ulcers.  Duodenal ulcers are more frequent in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic renal failure, and hyperparathyroidism.  Even with healing, however, the propensity to develop peptic ulcers remains.

  37. 37. Schematic presentation of the presumed action of H. pylori in the development of chronic gastritis and peptic ulceration. The histologic features of the two disease conditions are depicted
  38. 38. There are two key facts.  First, the fundamental requisite for peptic ulceration is mucosal exposure to gastric acid and pepsin. • At pH level 3.5 or more, stomach acid is neutralized  Second, there is a very strong causal association with H. pylori infection.  Mucosa can continually repair itself except in extreme instances Despite the clarity of these two statements, the actual pathogenesis of mucosal ulceration remains murky. Pathogenesis
  39. 39.  The array of host mechanisms that prevent the gastric mucosa from being digested like a piece of meat include the following: 1. Secretion of mucus by surface epithelial cells include the water-insoluble mucous gel layer. 2. Secretion of bicarbonate into the surface mucus, to create a buffered surface microenvironment. 3. Secretion of acid- and pepsin-containing fluid from the gastric pits as "jets" through the surface mucus layer, entering the lumen directly without contacting surface epithelial cells
  40. 40. 43
  41. 41. 4. Robust mucosal blood flow, to sweep away hydrogen ions that have back-diffused into the mucosa from the lumen and to sustain the high cellular metabolic and regenerative activity 5. Mucosal elaboration of prostaglandins (Vasodilation ), which help maintain mucosal blood flow. The possible mechanisms are as follows: Although H. pylori don’t invade the tissues, it induces an intense inflammatory and immune response.
  42. 42. Bacteria over epithelial cells
  43. 43.  H. pylori secretes a urease that breaks down urea to form toxic compounds such as ammonium chloride and monochloramine.  The organisms also elaborate phospholipases that damage surface epithelial cells.  Bacterial proteases and phospholipases break down the glycoprotein-lipid complexes in the gastric mucus, thus weakening the first line of mucosal defense.  Epithelial injury is also caused by a vacuolating toxin (VacA). Another toxin encoded by the cytotoxin- associated gene A (CagA) is a powerful stimulus for the production of IL-8 by the epithelial cells.
  44. 44.  Gram negative, Spirochete.  Does not invade cells  Colonize Gastric mucosa only *  Common cause of Duodenal ulcer * ?  Urease  Breakdown urea  ammonia  high pH  reflex acid prod…  Protease  Break down mucosa  expose epithelium for digestion.  Chronic infl.  Gastric Metaplasia Ulceration.  Complications: Bleeding, perforation, stenosis, Carcinoma.
  45. 45. Diagram of aggravating causes of, and defense mechanisms against, peptic ulceration.
  46. 46. NSAIDs are the major cause of peptic ulcer disease in patients who do not have H. pylori infection. The gastroduodenal effects of NSAIDs range from acute erosive gastritis and acute gastric ulceration to peptic ulceration in 1% to 3% of users. Thus, those who take these drugs for chronic rheumatic conditions are at particularly high risk.
  47. 47.  Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis increases secretion of hydrochloric acid and reduces bicarbonate and mucin production.  Loss of mucin degrades the mucosal barrier that normally prevents acid from reaching the epithelium.  Some NSAIDs can penetrate the gut mucosal cells as well. By mechanisms not clear  some NSAIDs also impair angiogenesis, thus impeding the healing of ulcers.
  48. 48. 1. defects in the mucosa that penetrate at least into the submucosa, and often into the muscularis propria or deeper. 2. Most are round, sharply punched-out craters 2 to 4 cm in diameter. 3. Those in the duodenum tend to be smaller, and occasional gastric lesions are significantly larger. 4. Favored sites are the anterior and posterior walls of the first portion of the duodenum and the lesser curvature of the stomach. Morphology
  49. 49. 5. The base of the crater appears remarkably clean, owing to peptic digestion of the inflammatory exudate and necrotic tissue. 6. Infrequently, an eroded artery is visible in the ulcer (usually associated with a history of significant bleeding). 7. If the ulcer crater penetrates through the duodenal or gastric wall, a localized or generalized peritonitis may develop and adjacent structure such as adherent omentum, liver, or pancreas could be affect.
  50. 50. o In open ulcer, four zones can be distinguished: o (1) The base and margins have a thin layer of necrotic fibrinoid debris. o (2) Fibrous, collagenous scar that fans out widely from the margins of the ulcer. o (3) Granulation tissue o (4) a zone of active nonspecific inflammatory infiltration with neutrophils predominating Histologic Appearance

  54. 54.  Most peptic ulcers cause epigastric gnawing, burning, or boring pain  but a significant minority first come to light with complications such as hemorrhage or perforation.  The pain tends to be worse at night and occurs usually 1 to 3 hours after meals during the day.  Classically, the pain is relieved by alkalis or food, but there are many exceptions.  Nausea, vomiting, bloating, belching, and significant weight loss (raising the specter of some hidden malignancy) are additional manifestations.  Bleeding is the chief complication, occurring in up to one third of patients, and may be life-threatening.
  55. 55.  Pain or discomfort  A feeling of fullness -- people with severe dyspepsia are unable to drink as much fluid as people with mild or no dyspepsia  Hunger and an empty feeling in the stomach, often 1 - 3 hours after a meal  Mild nausea (vomiting may relieve symptoms)  Regurgitation (sensation of acid backing up into the throat)  Occasionally, symptoms of GERD are present  Obstruction of the pyloric channel is rare. 63
