Vagally mediated gastric relaxation induced by intestinal nutrients in the dog.


Using a gastric barostat to measure gastric tone, we previously demonstrated that nutrient perfusion into the intestine induces gastric relaxation. To investigate the pathway of this enterogastric reflex we surgically isolated the vagi either in a cervical skin tunnel (3 dogs) or within an implanted supradiaphragmatic cooling jacket (3 dogs).
