The circulation in the liver is unique at macroscopic and microscopic levels. At the macroscopic level, there is an unusual presence of portal and arterial inputs rather than a single arterial input. At the microscopic level, a series of microenvironments in the acinar system is essential in controlling the functional characteristics of hepatic parenchymal cells. Since the hemodynamics is much less studied in the multifunctional liver, an attempt is made to study the hepatic hemodynamics in a… CONTINUE READING
