The present study was undertaken to clarify the role of congestion of the liver and endotoxemia in the production of fulminant hepatic failure secondary to congestive heart failure. Induction of congestion of the liver, i.e. an elevation of hepatic venous pressure, in rats was accomplished by partial obstruction of the inferior vena cava. A close relationship was demonstrated between venous pressure and serum levels of transaminases as a measure of hepatic dysfunction. Hepatic dysfunction was… CONTINUE READING

These data suggest that coexistence of endotoxaemia and congestion of the liver may induce fulminant hepatic failure , and that the latter alone is associated only with slight hepatic dysfunction and liver damage .
