A controlled study of therapeutic end-to-side portacaval shunt was carried out from 1968 to 1971 in 89 patients with alcoholic cirrhosis. Recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding was less common and chronic hepatic encephalopathy was more common in patients with shunts than in patients without shunts. The survival-rate was lower, but not significantly, in(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the biological substrate of radioactive pathways of migration of hypodermically injected 99mTc into points of low electrical resistance. Sixteen anesthetized adult male beagles were used. Control and test points were defined by comparing their electrical resistance to that of the pinna. Seventy-three(More)

Bile flow, erythritol clearance (measured after administration of 14-C-erythritol) and bile acid excretion were studied in 8 non-icteric patients operated upon for gallstone disease without biliary obstruction in whom a T-tube had been inserted. Bile flow increased from the 2nd (0.27 plus or minus SEM 0.01 ml/min) to the 7th (0.50 plus or minus SEM 0.05(More)
This is a case of a 22-year-old female patient with idiopathic thrombosis of the hepatic veins in whom side-to-side portacaval shunt was followed by the disappearance of a hitherto intractable ascites and a marked improvement in her general condition. The patient remained well for 1 1/2 years after surgery; however, liver cirrhosis, which was present before(More)
