Tissue blood How was compared by means of the radioisotope distribution technique in anesthetized dogs receiving intravenous Pitressin and in a comparable control group. The drug effected reductions in How to the esophagus (-65 percent), stomach -67 percent). duodenum (-43 percent), and pancres (-83 percent). Blood flow in the mucosa of the gastric body was reduced by 75 percent. Pitressin should prove to be a useful adjunct in the management of many patients with tipper gastrointestinal bleeding.
