Core Tip Giant gastric ulcer is considered to be more prone for perforation because of the large size and it is more likely to be malignant. Delay in seeking surgical care is to be discouraged because of the poor response to medical management. We have shown that with prompt treatment for perforated gastric ulcer, nearly 86% had uneventful recovery, complications were seen in about 10%, and mortality was about 5%. Furthermore, the chances of malignancy and leak after primary closure of giant gastric ulcer is high, so we feel partial distal gastrectomy and gastrojejunostomy is a better option, even in an emergency setting if the expertise is available.
