Effects of Electroacupuneture on Local Gastric Blood Flow in Ischemia-reperfusion Injury in Rats
Li Yifan et al
T'he purpose of this study is to observe the effects of electro-acupuncture on the gastric ischemia-reperfusion injury. As an index of the injury, local gastric blood flow ( LGBF ) was measured with the method of hydrogen clearance. The gastric ischemia-reperfusion injury was caused by occluding ( 15 min ) and reopening the Gastrica Sinistra in rats. The results showed. The simultaneous electroacupuncture on the points "Zusanli" with reperfusion notably increased LGBF at both 5minand20min after reperfusing. These facts suggest that electroacupuncture probably protect tissues from ischemia-reperfusion injury.
