Resumen

MONTES TEVES, Pedro Andrés; SORIA MEDINA, Jaime Ismael; GAMARRA ESPINOZA, Zer-Ima  y  MONGE SALGADO, Eduardo. Actitud del médico frente a la infección por Helicobacter pylori en su práctica clínica. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2002, vol.22, n.3, pp. 221-227. ISSN 1022-5129.

AIM: To study the attitude of general practitioners and internists towards the infection with helicobacter pylori. METHODS USED: Interviews were conducted among 170 physicians. Proportions were compared using the Z test.  RESULTS: Out of 170 interviewed, 152 questionnaires were completed correctly: 80.9% were general practitioners and 19% internists. All of the GPs and 84.6% of internists chose the oral-fecal as the route of transmission. Gastric ulcer was thought to be associated by 60.8% of GPs and 72.4% of internists. The least well known association was with MALT lymphoma (8.1%). Biopsy was reported as the best way to make diagnosis (54 and 72.4%). GPs reported they would treat recurring ulcers as Helicobacter pylori, while internists would treat them since the first episode. Sixty point 2 percent (60.2%) of GPs and 69% of internists are using inadequate schemes for treating Hp infections. The combination of omeprazol, amoxicylin, bismuth salts or clarithromycin was the most frequently used. CONCLUSIONS: Current knowledge regarding Helicobacter pylori infection among GPs and internists is not sufficiently understood.
