BACKGROUND Dysfunction of the gastrointestinal tract is a common occurrence after traumatic brain injury (TBI). We hypothesized that increased intestinal permeability may result from a precisely controlled percussion injury to the exposed brains of anesthetized rats and that such an effect could be assessed in vitro using excised intestinal mucosae mounted in Ussing chambers. METHODS After craniotomy over the left medial prefrontal cortex on anesthetized rats, neurotrauma was produced using a… CONTINUE READING
