OBJECTIVE To study the relation between fibrosis, pancreatic blood flow (PMBF), interstitial pH (pHi), and the effects of pancreaticojejunostomy (PJ) in chronic pancreatitis. BACKGROUND Chronic pancreatitis is associated with low PMBF and pHi, suggesting the existence of underlying ischemia. METHODS In cats, the main pancreatic duct was partially obstructed and the animals were studied 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks later. PJ was performed after 2 and 4 weeks of ductal obstruction and studied 4 weeks… CONTINUE READING
