Abstract

Increased intestinal permeability was found in humans after multiple trauma, burn injury and major vascular surgery. However, no data are reported regarding possible correlation between trauma and intestinal permeability degree. This study was undertaken to compare gas-liquid chromatographic and enzymatic method for the evaluation of intestinal permeability impairment in patients after severe abdominal trauma.
