Partial gastric resection means resection of the distal 50–80% of the stomach and closure of the duodenal stump. The gastrointestinal passage is restored by a gastrojejunostomy. Since the original Billroth method, a large number of different reconstruction options have been given. All forms of distal gastric resection with gastrojejunostomy are summarized under the umbrella term Billroth II reconstruction.
