Use of Intestinal Loops for Revascularization of the Heart
Intestinal loops brought up through the diaphragm and attached to the myocardium will cause the formation of connections between the vascular supplies of the heart and intestine. The vessels that develop between these two organs are large enough to transmit thick suspensions of barium sulfate. India ink injected in the mesenteric vessel can be readily found on all surfaces of the heart as well as deep within the myocardium.
