ABSTRACT
Helicobacter pylori (HP) is a major cause of peptic ulcer disease (PUD) and acute duodenal ulcer perforation is one of the commonest complications of PUD. Eradication of HP prevents ulcer recurrence and complications in patients with HP associated perforated duodenal ulcer. The aim of this study is to review the testing for, treatment of and reassessment of HP infection in patients presenting with acute perforation from PUD.
