Peritoneal lavage combined with volume therapy in porcine hemorrhagic pancreatitis. Effects on hemodynamics, microcirculation, and peritoneal morphology.

Acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis was induced in 15 piglets, after which 8 of the piglets were treated with saline infusion only and 7 were treated with saline infusion and peritoneal lavage. Hemodynamic variables were measured hourly. Organ and peritoneal blood flow was determined at 0, 1, and 5 h with radioactive microspheres. Peritoneal morphology was… CONTINUE READING
