The early detection and reversal of gastrointestinal ischaemia is thought to play a key role in minimizing the incidence of complications after abdominal aortic surgery. In an open prospective non-selective study intramucosal pH (pHi) was monitored in 27 patients undergoing elective aortic surgery and in seven submitted to emergency procedures. The pHi was monitored in the sigmoid colon in all 34 patients and in the stomach in 26. Eight patients developed major complications, four of whom had… CONTINUE READING
