What is Pyloric stenosis?
Pyloric stenosis is a narrowing of the pylorus, the opening from the stomach into the small intestine. In pyloric stenosis, the muscles of the pylorus are thickened. This prevents the stomach from emptying into the small intestine. The cause of the thickening is unknown, although genetic factors may play a role. Children of parents who had pyloric stenosis are more likely to have this condition.
