"Even though about 85% of patients are well following Pólya partial gastrectomy for peptic ulcer, a large number of unpleasant sequelae may occur. These may be classified into the following ... Dumping: comprises attacks of fainting, vertigo and sweating after food, rather like a hypoglycaemic attack. This is probably an osmotic effect due to gastric contents of high osmolarity passing rapidly into the jejunum, absorbing fluid into the gut lumen and producing a temporary reduction in circulating blood volume."
