The Committee of the American Gastroenterological Association, which had deliberated upon vagotomy for several years, made a report not entirely favorable upon vagotomy in 1952 (1). Viewed in the light of the climate of opinion, it looked for some time as though vagotomy was on its way out. A reversal of attitude began in England about the same time when Pollock (2) published a follow-up study on a large group of patients upon whom vagotomy and a complemental drainage operation had been performed. This report indicated that the results were considerably better than most observers had believed them to be.
