Occlusion of a lobar portal vein is known to induce atrophy of downstream liver lobes and hypertrophy of contralateral lobes. Changes in portal flow are known to be compensated by changes in hepatic arterial flow, thus defining the hepatic artery buffer response (HABR). To understand the role of liver flow in liver atrophy, we measured portal flow and hepatic artery flow after different degrees of left portal vein stenosis (LPVS). Surgery was performed to obtain 0, 43, 48, 59, 68, 72, 78, and… CONTINUE READING
