Abstract

In the literature it has been reported that somatostatin reduces the blood flow in the visceral vessels [1]. This effect is of therapeutic value. In view of the fact that somatostatin is applied in patients with diseases of the visceral organs (bleeding ulcer, cirrhosis of the liver, pancreatitis), it appears particularly important to know whether this compound, apart from having an effect on the larger vessels in this area, also has an effect — either direct or indirect — on the oxygen supply and the microcirculation in the tissue.
