Endothelial damage within the sinusoids of the liver probably plays a key role in primary liver dysfunction following transplantation. The aim of this work was to study the serum levels of two potential markers of endothelial damage, creatine kinase-BB and soluble thrombomodulin, during human graft revascularization. Thirteen human liver grafts were preserved in UW solution (mean time: 13.8 h). Creatine kinase-BB and transaminase activities and soluble thrombomodulin levels were measured: 1) in… CONTINUE READING
