Gastric antral web

Dr Craig Hacking and Dr Matt A. Morgan et al.

Gastric antral webs are a ring of mucosa in the distal stomach (gastric antrum) that can lead to gastric outlet obstruction. A circumferential ring of mucosa has also been termed a "gastric antral diaphragm".

Gastric antral webs are rare. There is an association with trisomy 21 and immunodeficiency syndromes.

  • smooth, thin narrowing of the gastric antrum, ~2 cm from the pylorus
  • if the web is large, it may result in the appearance of a "double duodenum"

The web may lead to gastric outlet obstruction. Symptomatic webs may be removed with upper endoscopy 3.
