ABSTRACT: Serum inorganic phosphate levels were estimated in guineapigs where infarction was produced by ligating superior mesenteric artery (SMA). Serum inorganic phosphate levels rose significantly during the first 3-4 hours. The maximum level was attained by 4th hour. No serum change in inorganic phosphate level was noted when bowel gangrene was established. Therefore, rising serum inorganic phosphate levels indicate reversible state of infarction if appropriate intervention is undertaken. Significant ultrastructural changes were absent in the early part of SMA occlusion.
