From: Influence of two different levels of intra-abdominal hypertension on bacterial translocation in a porcine model

Level Distribution Microbiological findings
Level 1 Local BT Detection of gut-derived bacteria in mesenteric lymph nodes
Level 2 Regional BT Detection of gut-derived bacteria in portal vein blood or liver
Level 3 Systemic BT Detection of gut-derived bacteria in peripheral blood or other organs
