Abstract

The transient mural perfusion recovery (TMPR) phenomenon impacts the viability of the wall of the small intestine during simple mechanical small bowel obstruction. In studying the mechanism of transient mural perfusion recovery, our data suggest two important conclusions, namely: 1) this phenomenon is mediated by a purely mechanical coupling between vascular and extra-vascular materials, and 2) it is linked to post-distention changes in intramural stress, but not intramural stretch, of the gut tube.
