To test whether small bowel contraction can be induced by electrostimulation similar to in vitro results in anesthetized and awake animals, five dogs had stainless steel electrodes implanted on the serosal surface of the jejunum and ileum. Fifty milliamperes of 500-microseconds 910-Hz currents induced a 50-80-mm Hg pressure increase in the jejunum with a… CONTINUE READING
