The uniqueness of this text on gastrointestinal physiology as compared with other works on this subject is the superior presentation of circulation and motility of the gut, whereas the weakness is the discussion of secretion and assimilation.
The early chapters are concerned with gastrointestinal blood flow. The available methodology for in vivo studies of total splanchnic flow as well as gastric mucosal flow in humans and animals is critically discussed. Regulation of splanchnic and hepatic circulatory dynamics are presented in a lucid manner as is alterations of blood flow occurring with digestion and motor activity.
Motility is also handled in
