Electron microscopic images from ileal epithelial cells of sham-operated animals and of interposed ileum similar to those shown in Figures 8(d) and 8(e) were employed to measure length of microvilli.
The anti-spasmodic activity was estimated using isolated jejunum and ileum (Gilani et al., 2005; 2006).Isolated rabbit jejunum: The relaxant effect of test material was calculated as % variation in spontaneous contractions of the jejunum of rabbit.Isolated guinea-pig ileum: The contractile reaction to the test substances was surveyed as the percent of the maximalreaction prepared by acetylcholine (0.3 M) as the control drug prior to the addition of test substances (Gilani and Aftab, 1992).Determination of calcium channel blocking activity: The mechanism of the antispasmodic action was determined by the possible effects of the crude plant extracts on high K+ (80 mM)-induced contractions as described by Farre et al.
Suturing of injured ileum was done with polyglactine 4/0 sutures and an intraperitoneal tube drain was left.
Nucleic Acid Extraction from Human Ileum and Vaccine Samples
At laparotomy, a 20 cm abnormal segment of small intestine (ileum) was identified; this gave a false appearance of 50 cm collection on the CT scan images (Figures 1 and 2) that was characterised by multiple diverticula and mesenteric cysts.
Intestinal inflammation was produced by the instillation of 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid (TNBS) into the lumen of the rat ileum.

Gastrointestinal discomfort is mainly triggered by ileum contractions, which can be caused by several factors.

Pigs were surgically fitted with a T-cannula in the distal ileum using procedures adapted from Stein et al [18].
On histopathology, diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of ileum was confirmed [figure 2].
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of dexmedetomidine administered at different times in preventing tissue damage, measuring the serum, kidney and ileum MDA, and SCUBE-1 levels and conducting the histopathologic examination in rats with an intestinal IR model.
Cecal volvulus is a folding of the terminal ileum and descending colon with its mesentery on its own axis.
It results from incomplete obliteration of the vitelline duct at the ileum and appears as a finger-like protrusion of intestine measuring 1-5 cm on the antimesenteric surface of the middle ileum.
