Title: Helicobacter Pylori – A General Surgeon’s Experience
Abstract: 
With the discovery of H. pylori, the adage “no acid, no ulcer’ has now been evolved to ‘no H. pylori, no ulcer’. H. pylori is implicated in numerous gastroduodenal diseases. The understanding of its prevalence helps to identify infection source as well as transmission, treatment and eradication. The present study details my experience of the prevalence, diagnosis, and treatment of H. pylori in my general surgery practice, esophagogastroduoden oscopy (EGD) results in rural North Carolina and North Dakota.
