Patient underwent an emergent exploratory midline laparotomy which revealed a large 7 cm anterior antral perforation and a 3 cm posterior wall perforation of the stomach. Four quadrant peritoneal soiling and food contents within the lesser sac.
A thorough washout and distal gastrectomy with roux-en-Y gastrojejunostomy was performed.
