The motor function of an isolated segment of small intestine in dogs with acture radiation sickness

Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


The motor function of the isolated intestinal loop (by Thiry-Vella's method) was studied with the aid of an air-balloon transmission. Experiments were carried out on 3 dogs. Radiation sickness was caused by x-ray irradiation in the dose of 400 r. The results of experiments demonstrated that the motor activity of the isolated intestine is greatly intensified in acute radiation sickness. However, periods of depression and normalization of the motor function were also noted.
