Compensation of the digestive functions after partial resection of the stomach in dogs

  • S. I. Filippovich


This article presents results of examination of the compensatory processes and the function of the digestive system after partial (two-thirds and four-fifths) resection of the stomach in dogs. These data were obtained in experiments on 28 dogs, observed up to 2 years after the operation. The secretory function and the enzyme secretion of the stomach, pancreas and small intestine, as well as the motor function and absorptive property of the small intestine, were studied.

The experiments demonstrated that compensation of the functions of the digestive system took place mainly by way of rearrangement of the secretory motor function of the small intestine. Certain data concerning the mechanisms of compensatory reactions were also obtained.

The role of the extramural intestinal innervation and the functional cordition of the food center in compensatory processes was studied in particular.
