This study examined the effect of preconditioning on steatotic livers for transplantation and attempted to identify the underlying protective mechanisms. Blood flow alterations, neutrophil accumulation, tumor necrosis factor alpha release and lipid peroxidation were observed in nonsteatotic livers after transplantation. Steatotic and nonsteatotic liver grafts were similar in their blood flow, neutrophil accumulation, and TNF release after transplantation. However, in the presence of steatosis… CONTINUE READING
