abstract

  • TL impairs nutritional status and intestinal absorption and adaptation following massive resection. The changes in absorption and transit may be related, in part, to motor disruption and hypergastrinemia. The impaired adaptation is possibly related to decreased enteroglucagon and increased somatostatin levels.
