Hepatocellular calcification in severe ischemia-reperfusion injury in a liver allograft.

Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IR) of solid organ allografts is a consequence of ischemia resulting from disruption of blood flow during organ harvest and transportation. Histologically, this manifests as variable necrosis in a pattern similar to that seen in systemic hypoperfusion. Calcification of hepatocytes has been rarely observed in ischemic injury due… CONTINUE READING
