This video demonstrates the technique of vagotomy and antrectomy with Billroth I anastomosis for complicated duodenal ulcer disease. The surgeon uses a hand-sewn anastomosis between body of the stomach and the duodenum. The performance of vagotomy is controversial, but in this case the surgeon performs a bilateral vagotomy before the antrectomy.
