Pyloric Stenosis (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Pyloric stenosis (say: pie-LOR-ick stuh-NO-sis) occurs when the opening from the stomach to the intestine is blocked. This opening is called the pylorus (say: pie-LOR-us). There is a muscle around this opening. Normally, this muscle keeps food in the stomach when it tightens. It lets food out of the stomach into the intestines when it relaxes. Boys have pyloric stenosis more often than girls. (English)
