To evaluate techniques for retrograde pancreatic venography similar to epinephrine renal venography, 35 dogs had transjugular portography before and after the infusion of various doses of vasopressin systemically or selectively into the superior mesenteric and celiac arteries, or after occlusion of the distal thoracic aorta. Increased filling of the peripheral portal branches resulted, but none of the techniques provided diagnosticaiiy useful enhanced pancreatic visualization.
