Follow‐up by one‐ and two‐dimensional NMR of plasma from pigs with ischemia‐induced acute liver failure treated with a bioartificial liver
Hepatic encephalopathy may occur following acute hepatic failure (AHF), which results in the release of toxic compounds from the injured liver. These compounds, which induce cerebral edema, are notExpand
