There are, however, problems related to other causes, such as preservation injuries, which we found to exhibit, at least within the first 6 h, the same histological patterns seen in experimental acute pancreatitis. We(More)
The authors describe an original surgical technique for pancreatic transplantation carried out on an experimental rat model which duplicates as closely as possible the anatomic-functional situation of a pancreatic graft in man (one arterovenous vascular peduncle with one functioning kidney only). The technique entails a microanastomosis between the(More)
Choline-esterase inhibitor (C1-INH), a regulatory alpha-glycoprotein, was administered at different dosages and intervals to rats with induced acute pancreatitis. When compared to controls, treated rats showed no significant differences in the severity of histopathological lesions, such as edema and single cell necrosis. On the other hand, both mortality(More)
