Course Overview

The appropriate surgical procedure for correcting a gastric perforation depends on the location and cause of the injury. The simplest method for surgical repair of a gastric perforation caused by a peptic ulcer is to oversew the perforation and tack it down with a piece of omentum to seal the hole, this is called an omental patch. This course reviews the steps of completing the procedure while also reviewing potential complications. The perioperative process and recommended interventions for managing the patient undergoing this procedure will also be discussed.

The goal of this course is to provide CSTs with information about gastric perforation repair with omental patch surgery and potential complications.
