Splanchnic vas­o­reg­u­la­tion is poor­ly under­stood. The tis­sue per­fu­sion in the splanch­nic ­region may be com­pro­mised in crit­i­cal­ly ill ­patients ­both ­because of the under­ly­ing dis­ease and ther­a­peu­tic inter­ven­tions. Inadequate per­fu­sion, dys­ox­ia, and ische­mia- reper­fu­sion may trig­ger and mod­i­fy an inflam­ma­to­ry ­response ­which may ­itself ­cause dete­ri­ora­tion of the splanch­nic per­fu­sion.
