The article focuses on the change in treatment strategy of perforated peptic ulcer. According to the author, the development of effective medical therapy and the self-sealing comprise the cornerstone of nonoperative management of perforation. He concludes that most surgeons in developed countries are reluctant not to operate and fix the perforation by open or laparoscopic method although nonoperative management of perforated peptic ulcers has been proven safe in multiple series.
