Scintigraphic evaluation of bacterial translocation during hemorrhagic shock.


We investigated the use of gamma scintigraphy to evaluate the temporal and spatial patterns of translocation of radiolabeled Escherichia coli from the porcine jejunum during and following hemorrhagic shock. Thirteen healthy mixed breed pigs (22-43 kg) were randomly allocated to two groups. Pigs were anesthetized with sodium pentobarital (30 mg/kg) and… (More)
