Splanchnic vascular control during sepsis and endotoxemia.

Abstract

Endotoxemia and sepsis often result in circulatory derangements which manifest as perfusion maldistributions. It has been widely accepted that the splanchnic circulation decreases in perfusion during advanced septic or endotoxemic states. Impaired perfusion of splanchnic organs may result not only in organ dysfunction but also exacerbations of polymicrobial… (More)
