ABSTRACT
Aim of study: The incidence of Helicobacter pylori positive ulcers, according to the Canadian and Hong-kong's studies, decreased. This effect could be geographically dependent. It was a reason, why we examined the incidence of Helicobacter pylori positive and Helicobacter pylori negative peptic ulcers in set of Czech population. Material: We examined the set of 1000 patients from 3200 gastroscopies in 1996, and 1000 patients from 3100 endoscopies in 2000. The indication of endoscopical examination were symptoms of peptic ulcer disease. Results: From 1070 examined pts in 1996, the peptic ulcer was found in 11,7%, in group of patients examined in 2000 from 1092 gastroscopies was peptic ulcer found in 8,0%. In 1996 Helicobacter pylori positive ulcer was found in 62,2% and in 2000 in 43,2% only. In 59,5% of patients in the year 1996 was ulcer localized in the duodenum; in the group from the year 2000 in 52,3% resp. The number of gastric ulcer increased from 40,5% in 1996 to 47,7% in 2000. The etiological factor of gastric ulcer was in 80,0% abusus of nonsteroid antiinflamatory drugs. Conclusion: The incidence of peptic ulcer disease during last 5 years in the set of person examined in region of Czech Republic, decreased. The ratio between H. pylori positive and H. pylori negative peptic ulcer is now similar 43,2% versus 46,8% resp. The reason of this fact is that czech's population was Helicobacter pylori eradicated during the last 5 years.
