Table 2 Incidence of GFP-uv E. coli translocation to distant organs

From: Microscopy of bacterial translocation during small bowel obstruction and ischemia in vivo – a new animal model

Group Organ number of GFP-uv E. coli per HPF (mean + s.d.)
sham operated MLN none
  liver none
  spleen none
non-ischemic obstruction MLN 1.8 ± 0.7
  liver 2.9 ± 1.2
  spleen 2.0 ± 0.9
ischemic obstruction MLN 2.0 ± 0.9
  liver 2.8 ± 1.0
  spleen 1.8 ± 0.7
  1. MLN = mesenteric lymph nodes; HPF = high power field
