Standard splenic injuries were made on 30 male albino rats. 15 of the spleens were repaired by splenorrhaphy and the other 15 were wrapped with(More)
We experimentally studied the effects of H2 receptor blockers (ranitidine) on bacterial translocation (BT) in 42 male albino rats. Sham group (Group I, n = 12 rats) were exposed to 21 degrees C water while Burn group (Group II, n = 15 rats) and Ranitidine group (Group III, n = 15 rats) were exposed to 95 degrees C hot water for 10 seconds to produce a full(More)
