Peptic Ulcer Disease – Part 9
Type 4 gastric ulcers are the least commonly occurring type and comprise about 5% of all gastric ulcers. They occur on the lesser curve of the stomach close to the gastroesophageal junction. They are associated with normal acid secretion so vagotomy is not generally performed. If possible, the ulcer is removed with a wedge resection.
