The function of the small intestine is mechanical to a large degree. To understand the function it is necessary to know how the mechanical stresses and strains can be computed. Nutrition plays an important role in the maintenance of normal gut structure and function. The small intestine undergoes functional changes when food is withheld. To explore the morphological and biomechanical remodeling during starvation, intestinal segments from the fed and fasted rat duodenum, jejunum, and ileum were… CONTINUE READING
