Kinin Release Associated with the Gastro-Intestinal Tract

Dumping was the name used by Mix in 1922, to describe the rapid emptying into the jejunum of the contents of the stomach remnant, frequently seen in patients who have undergone gastric surgery. The condition is usually accompanied by a number of more or less disabling vasomotor and intestinal symptoms. A commonly occurring form of the dumping syndrome consists of peripheral vasodilatation, transient postural hypotension with syncope-like fainting, increased or decreased intestinal motility, and vomiting or diarrhoea.
