Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) is the most common cause of gastric outlet obstruction in infants. Although first described in the early 1700s, surgical correction of the disease was not reported until the early 1900s. The principles of the operation were established by Ramstedt in 1912 and have led to the routinely efficient treatment of HPS for over a century [1].
