Gastric mucosal hyperemia due to acid backdiffusion depends on splanchnic nerve activity.


Acid backdiffusion through a disrupted gastric mucosal barrier leads to an increase in gastric mucosal blood flow (MBF). This response involves afferent neurons that pass through the celiac ganglion. The present study examined the neural pathways that underlie the rise in MBF caused by gastric perfusion with 15% ethanol in 0.15 N HCl. MBF was measured by… (More)
