Peptic Ulcers are lesions in the mucosal lining of the stomach (Tamparo & Lewis 2000). Peptic Ulcers represent a breakdown in the balance between acid-pepsin secretion and mucosal defense in the stomach (Tamparo & Lewis 2000). The causes of this breakdown are not clear but they seem related to chronic over-secretion of gastric juices, stress and hereditary factors (Tamparo & Lewis 2000). Reactions to drugs such as salicylates and smoking and alcohol may be contributing factors (Tamparo & Lewis 2000). The impact of peptic ulcers for over a century has been one of the leading causes of gastrointestinal surgery, with high morbidity and mortality rates (Sumbul, Aftab Ahm, Mohd, & Mohd, 2011).
