Significant changes occur in intestinal hemodynamics during the transition from fetal to newborn life and then again during the first postnatal month. Most importantly, basal vascular resistance substantially decreases following birth. It then decreases further between postnatal days 1 and 3, plateaus, and then begins a slow, progressive increase between… (More)
