Gastrointestinal tract

Vasodilating prostaglandins, in particular the E series, exert cytoprotective properties within the gastrointestinal tract. A number of mechanisms are potentially responsible for this protection, including augmentation of mucosal blood flow, inhibition of acid secretion, stimulation of mucus and alkaline secretion, stabilization of tissue lysosomes, and inhibition of proinflammatory cytokine release (Va.De.,aDd.,O1G^§dY...,i99.3).

Endogenous epoprostenol release reduces ischemia-reperfusion injury in experimental animals and limits perioperative endotoxemia and bacterial translocation in patients undergoing major surgery (BrjnkmaQn §.L§L 1996).
