This paper reports clinical results of gastric "freezing" for duodenal ulcer in a series of in patient treatments begun at the University of Kansas Medical Center in November, 1962. Although over 110 inpatients have been treated by freezing, only 100 of these have been followed up for 9 months or longer to date. Group studies were organized in an effort to answer specific clinical and laboratory questions pertaining to the procedure.
Volunteer patients were chosen for "freezing" only if they had X-ray evidence of duodenal ulcer and were having pain up to the time of the freeze treatment. Patients
