Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of (i) truncal vagotomy + pyloroplasty, (ii) proximal cell vagotomy and (iii) anterior proximal cell vagotomy + posterior truncal vagotomy on the gastric secretion and gastric emptying in rats. After vagotomy basal and 2-deoxy-glucose stimulated gastric secretion decreased significantly in all three vagotomy groups. Gastric secretion on the other hand was significantly higher in the proximal cell vagotomy group than on the other vagotomy groups. The rate of gastric emptying in proximal cell vagotomy and anterior proximal cell vagotomy + posterior truncal vagotomy groups was delayed. The best results were found in the truncal vagotomy + pyloroplasty group when the gastric secretion and the rats of gastric emptying are concerned.
