Infantile Hypertrophic Pyloric Stenosis


Infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis is a condition where the child has an obstruction in the outlet of the stomach due to Hypertrophic (overgrowth) of the muscles at the outlet of the stomach. This condition is often seen within the first month of birth. The child presents with nonbilious vomiting. The diagnosis of the condition is confirmed on sonography. This illness is corrected surgically by a procedure known as “Ramstead’s pyloromyotomy” where a cut is made over the overgrown muscle and the mucosa (inner layer)  is exposed. Due to this, the obstruction is relieved. The child is allowed to feed within a few hours or days. The child is fit to spend an absolutely normal life thereafter.
