BACKGROUND We investigated the effects of isoflurane and sevoflurane in a warm liver ischemia-reperfusion (IR) model on cytokines, hepatic tissue blood flow (HTBF), energy content, and liver structure. METHODS Seventy-two Wistar rats were randomly assigned into 1 of 3 groups: Control group, no volatile anesthetics; sevoflurane group, 2% sevoflurane;(More)
