Background and objectives: Serious functional and structural alterations of gastrointestinal tract are observed in failure of blood supply, leading to gastrointestinal dismotility. Activation of opioid receptors provides cardioprotective effect against ischemia-reperfusion (i/R) injury. The aim of the present study was to determine whether or not remifentanil could reduce i/R injury of small intestine.
