Effects of portacaval shunt and hepatic artery ligation on liver surface oxygen tension and effective hepatic blood flow.

Abstract

Liver surface oxygen tension (LSOT) and nutrient hepatic blood flow (NHBF) were measured in rats 1 hr and 1 week after sham operation, portacaval shunt (PCS), and hepatic artery ligation (HAL). LSOT was measured using a heated Clark electrode (37 deg) and was expressed as percentage of rectus muscle O2 tension to correct for changes in systemic oxygenation… (More)
