According to various experiments based on post mortem studies it has been revealed that heineke mikulicz pyloroplasty is useful in the treatment of pyloric stenosis. This procedure has been thus named after the associated persons Walter Hermann Heineke and Jan Mikulicz radecki for the by treatment of pyloric stenosis. In the heineke mikulicz pyloroplasty, the surgical procedure involves an increase in the diameter of the narrowest area of the pylorus muscles. This is very effective in increasing the outlet for passage of food from the stomach into the small intestine.
With the application of the heineke mikulicz pyloroplasty method there is a further increase to an 8 cm pyloroplasty that leads to increase in the size of the pyloric outlet. Contrary to common notion, the incision made by the heineke mikulicz pyloroplasty does not reduce the mean cross sectional are of the pyloric canals.
The narrowest area part of the outlet is restricted to the pylorus canal. The heineke mikulicz pyloroplasty is performed when there is pyloric stenosis that is obstructing the passage of content from the stomach into the small intestine. In this method a short incision is made through the layers of the pylorus and it is closed traversal. This method is also applied in the process of truncal vagotomy.
