To assess the incidence of operative complications, mortality, and accuracy of vagotomy in transabdominal vagotomy, 733 cases were reviewed. Statistics are compared with those of other authors. A loose comparison of patients operated on by resident surgeons versus those operated on by attending surgeons is also made. Our preference for immediate microscopic examination of vagotomy specimens is stressed. One unusual complication is described.
