Oxygen consumption, pCO2 gradients and regional blood flow distribution in an alternative model of intestinal autotransplantation.


BACKGROUND Postoperative complications after intestinal transplantation can be attributed to hypothermic storage and reperfusion injury. Our objective was to evaluate, in an alternative model of intestinal autotransplantation, the initial effects of isolated intestinal hypothermic perfusion (at 4 degrees C, IHP) on mucosal and serosal blood flow… (More)
