A comparison of the effects of end-to-side portacaval shunting and side-to-side mesocaval shunting on hepatic haemodynamics in the dog.


Functional liver blood flow and hepatic artery flow were measured before and after either end-to-side portacaval or side-to-side mesocaval shunting in dogs. Functional liver blood fell by approximately 50% following both portacaval and mesocaval shunting. The hepatic artery response was variable after both portacaval and mesocaval shunts.
