About the Cover: The modified procedure with duodenum annular internal drainage is feasible in relieving the symptoms when conservative treatment fails in young adults with SMAS. The new procedure increases surgery time and SSS. However, it potentially reduces the recurrence rate and postoperative complications of duodenal obstruction and antiperistalsis and improves quality of life. Further study will be required for effectiveness and safety of the modified procedure in the people with SMAS with longstanding history. (See page 176).
