Abstract

Intestinal anastomotic healing is a complex procedure in which several mediators and cytokines play roles. Calcitonin gene-related peptide is an important neuropeptide in inflammation. In this study we aimed to investigate the effect of calcitonin gene-related peptide on healing of intestinal anastomosis in rats with obstructive jaundice.
