Hyperacidity and hypergastrinemia following extensive intestinal resection.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Increased gastric acid secretion occurs after extensive intestinal resection in man, dog, rat, and monkey. Hypergastrinemia has been observed in patients with short gut syndrome and appears to accompany the hyperacidity after intestinal resection in dog, rat, and monkey. Postresectional hypergastrinemia is caused by increased release of gastrin and/or decreased degradation of the hormone. Other hormonal changes after extensive resection include increased insulin, GIP, pancreatic glucagon, and decreased enteroglucagon.
