what does ischemia mean?
reduction of blood supply to a localized tissue or organ usually caused by arterial narrowing or obstruction of blood inflow to the tissue
_________ is impaired digestion of stomach content with epigastric pain caused by disorders affecting gastric function
________ is a break in the mucosa of an organ of the alimentary tract exposed to gastric acid and pepsin
________ is the inflammation of the stomach, especially the mucosa with leukocyte inflitration
________ is a rare syndrome including diarrhea and severe peptic ulceration due to gastric hypersection secondary to excessive gastrin release from an endocrine gastric and pancreatic neoplasm
______ is surgical incision of the vagus nerve
________ surgical excision or removal of part or all of the stomach
________ is the formation of an artifical or surgical opening into the stomach
_______ is an abnormal opening or connection formed between one epithelial surface and another, artifical passage can be between two organs or two parts of the same organ
casual agents of peptic ulceration
