Úlcera estomacal

Toggle: English / Spanish

This animation shows a stomach ulcer forming and then reducing in size as it heals.

Una úlcera estomacal es causada por un desequilibrio entre las secreciones de ácido y pepsina y las defensas del recubrimiento mucoso del estómago. Las úlceras pueden ser tratadas con cambios en la dieta y medicamentos.
