Comparison of changes in intestinal length and circumference after 90 per cent bypass and 90 per cent resection.

Abstract

Compensatory hypertrophy was compared in rats that had undergone 90 per cent small intestinal resection and rats that had undergone 90 per cent small intestinal bypass. Increases in intestinal length and circumference occurred rapidly in both groups and were virtually identical. Lengthening was more pronounced in the jejunum; increase in circumference was… (More)
