Materials and methods
The study analyzed the experience of treatment of 58 patients who underwent surgical intervention. All patients were prevented from developing erosive and ulcerative lesions of the gastroduodenal zone using proton pomp inhibitors (intraoperatively and in the early postoperative period), their effectiveness was compared.
According to the study, Ulsepan (pantoprazole) compared with omeprazole has a greater efficacy in regulating the pH of the stomach and preventing the occurrence of stress lesions of the mucous membrane of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
Ulsepan (pantoprazole) is an effective and safe mean for preventing erosive and ulcerative lesions in patients at risk during surgical interventions.
