The basis for the high incidence of infectious complications in portal hypertension (PHT) remains unclear. The hypothesis that PHT induces bacterial translocation (BT) was tested in a rat model with or without mono-association with streptomycin resistant Escherichia coli C25 and with or without hypovolemic shock. PHT was achieved by partial portal vein(More)
We investigated the renal response to direct renal nerve stimulation, 2 weeks following reversal of 24-h unilateral (left) ureteric obstruction. Renal nerve stimulation caused a 13-15 % fall in renal blood flow, in 4 groups of anesthetized rats following ureteric obstruction (n=9) or a sham operation (n=7) both with (n=9) and without (n=7) treatment with(More)
349 There are a number of published reports on the use of ketamine hydrochloride in the rat. Weisbroth & Fudens (1972) found that ketamine at a dose level of 44 mg/kg produced a 'level of anesthesia' sufficient for a procedure lasting 10-15 min, such as cardiac puncture, laparotomy, or skin grafting. Smith & Castro (1978) said that anaesthesia could be(More)
