Relation between flow-pressure-diameter studies in experimental stenosis of rabbit and human small bowel.


Patients with inflammatory and ischaemic bowel diseases seem to tolerate narrowing of the gut lumen to a critical degree of stenosis without obstructive symptoms. To determine the physical factors involved in bowel occlusion, we created an experimental model using New Zealand rabbits in acute experiments under general anaesthesia.
