Functional hepatic flow and total hepatic flow were determined by non-invasive techniques in 32 patients with cirrhosis and in 32 paired control subjects. Functional hepatic flow was measured by the hepatic clearance of D-sorbitol, while total hepatic flow was determined by pulsed echo-Doppler, as the sum of portal and hepatic arterial blood flow. Functional hepatic flow was significantly reduced in patients with cirrhosis (927 +/- 314 vs. 1287 +/- 315; p < 0.0001), while total hepatic flow was… CONTINUE READING
