When the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome was first identified, total gastrectomy was proposed as the most effective treatment for the secretory manifestations of the syndrome.

The authors have cared for 27 patients with the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome at The University of Texas Medical Branch in the past 12 years and have been pleased with the results of total gastrectomy, which was performed in 23 of the 27 patients (one patient refused operation and three patients had lesser gastric operations). Twenty-three patients underwent total gastrectomy with Roux-en-Y esophagojejunostomy. There were no operative deaths. Primary tumors were found in 17 patients, seven of whom also had metastatic tumors. No tumors were found in nine patients. Nine patients are dead; the actuarial survival rate for all patients was 75% at 5 years and 52% at 10 years. Eleven of the 27 patients had the multiple endocrine neoplasia I syndrome. Of the 18 survivors, only three have normal serum gastrin levels, and all three had extrapancreatic gastrinomas, one in peripancreatic lymph nodes, one in the liver, and one in a cystic tumor attached to the stomach....Continue Reading
