abstract

  • In this contribution we discuss the relapse prophylaxis of ulcers by nonmedicamentous measures, by long-term drug therapy and, in particular, with inhibitors of secretion, by eradication therapy of Helicobacter pylori and by surgical therapy. Besides secondary prophylaxis (prevention of ulcer relapses), primary prophylaxis (prevention of the first episode) is also briefly treated.
