Background: Peptic Ulcer Perforation is an important and common emergency. One of the most dreaded and common
complication of peptic ulcers is perforation. Perforations account for about 5% of peptic ulcers.
Aim and Objectives: The aim of this study is clinical study of perforated peptic ulcer with objectives to assess the socio demographic distribution
of peptic ulcer and to assess the clinical presentations and management of peptic ulcer perforation.
Methodology: This was a retrospective study conducted in Chhattisgarh Institute of Medical Sciences Bilaspur in year 2018-2019. Total 158
patients were taken, who were diagnosed and operated for perforated peptic ulcer. Detail history and clinical findings were taken from case file.
Result: a total 158 patients were studied, 76% were male, and 41-50 years age group was commonly affected. Alcohol consumption, old age, comorbid
illness and pre admission delayed was most common factor. Abdominal pain i.e. 100% was most common presentation. Duodenal
perforation was common i.e.38.60%. omentopaxy was preferable mode of repair perforation.
Conclusion: Perforation of peptic ulcer is one of the common surgical emergencies and requires awareness and prompt management and
operation. It mostly affects young and middle aged males in the thirties. Simple closure with omentopaxy is standard procedure.
