This Thesis presents a study of the altered physiology which may follow resection of part of the stomach. The incidence and types of clinical syndromes from which the patient may suffer after partial gastrectomy have been defined by a careful follow-up study and investigations of gastrointestinal motility, cardiovascular and electrocardiographic changes in response to a meal of glucose and absorption of glucose and of iron by the intestine have been carried out. The results of these investigations are discussed in relation to the various types of post-gastrectomy syndromes. In Volume I, the main body of the Thesis, a description of the methods used and a statement and discussion of the results are presented. Volume II is an appendix to the main Thesis and includes details of the various studies.
