ABSTRACT: The ductus venosus allows highly oxygenated blood returning from the umbilical-placental circulation to bypass the liver, and is believed thereby to facilitate preferential distribution of this blood to the fetal brain and heart. To examine this hypothesis, we developed a model that allows acute obstruction of the ductus venosus in chronically catheterized fetal lambs. In seven fetal lambs, a Swann-Ganz catheter was inserted into the inferior vena cava and the balloon tip advanced… CONTINUE READING
