Abstract

Background. The metabolic changes associated with carbon dioxide (CO(2)) pneumoperitoneum include metabolic acidosis and lowered intra-abdominal pH values. An experimental study was performed to evaluate the effect of CO(2) pneumoperitoneum on esophageal and gastric smooth muscle sensitivity in response to several agonists.
