Pyloric Stenosis, Infantile Hypertrophic, 1; Ihps1
Infantile pyloric stenosis is the most common condition requiring surgical intervention in the first year of life. It typically presents in infants 2 to 6 weeks after birth. Clinically the disorder is characterized by projectile vomiting, visible gastric peristalsis, and a palpable pyloric tumor (summary by Everett et al., 2008). Mortality was high until successful treatment by pyloromyotomy was developed by Ramstedt (1912).
