BACKGROUND This study aimed to examine the hepatocyte apoptosis in a hepatic blood inflow occlusion rat model without hemi-hepatic arterial control and its association with the expressions of the apoptosis-regulating genes bcl-2 and bax. MATERIALS AND METHODS Wistar rats were equally and randomly assigned to undergo sham operation (control group, n = 8… CONTINUE READING
