We have developed a system for chronically catheterizing 10- to 25-d-old pigs that permits stable isotope tracer studies of intestinal or colonic assimilation of nutrients. This model also can be used to ensure constant enteral feeding or to assess the rate of entry into the terminal ileum of carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids. A plastic cannula with a luminal flange can be surgically placed in the stomach for tracer studies of sugar digestion or for controlled infusion of any formula diet. A similar cannula can be placed in the cecum for infusion of tracer and(or) substrates for studies of fermentation. The cannula has been machined so that a washer and nut can be threaded onto it, allowing the entire apparatus to be fixed to the abdominal wall. The distal end protruding above the skin was tapered to fit standard i.v. extension tubing. A carotid arterial catheter was used to sample substrates for isotopic enrichment measurements.
