The Excretion of Nitrogen after Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Obstruction

Abstract

After obstruction of the cardiac end of the stomach and after obstruction and release of the pylorus there is a marked increase in non-protein nitrogen excretion. This increase is due to accelerated protein destruction, which may result from the great fluid loss, or to the action of some toxic body.
