It was observed that there was relationship between the 10 indexes and bleeding, i.e. the diameter of portal vein in bleeding group 1.60±0.29 cm, portal venous flow 986.5±117.8 ml/min, free portal pressure 3.76±0.28 kPa, the esophageal variceal pressure 3.56±0.25 kPa.
Trifurcation of the portal vein was seen in nine cases.
Majority of the hepatic flow from the portal vein can be maintained adequately.
Overall hypohydration of the body prevented the dilation of hepatic veins typical of an AOP while not affecting noticeably the venous congestion in the portal vein system.
Dogs were instrumented with indwelling portal vein and carotid artery catheters, a catheter jejunostomy and an electromagnetic flow measuring probe around the portal vein enabling continuous flow recordings.
Methods Sub-adult pigs were fitted, under anaesthesia, with permanent catheters in the portal vein, carotid artery and urethra, and with an electromagnetic flow probe around the portal vein.
We recognized and honoured the important contributions of these Chinese pioneers in portal hypertension, recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, hepatocellular carcinoma and liver transplantation.
Splenic autotransplantation and oesophageal transection anastomosis in patients with portal hypertension (26 years clinical obse
The surgical treatment methods for cirrhosis patients complicated with portal hypertension are complicated.
In this study, we evaluated the effectiveness of a new treatment strategy: splenic auto-transplantation and oesophageal transection anastomosis on 274 patients from three aspects: clinical observation, splenic immunology and portal dynamics.
From 1979 to 2005, 274 cirrhosis patients with portal hypertension who underwent the new treatment strategy were followed up to observe different clinical indexes, which were then compared with those of the traditional surgery treatment.
The influence of extracellular glucose on isometric contractions induced by acetylcholine was investigated under aerobic conditions in rat portal veins.
The results suggest that isometric contractions of portal veins are significantly influenced by aerobic glycolysis.
The pattern of dihydroxyphenylalanine decarboxylase immunoreactivity was compatible with innervation of the intrahepatic hepatic arteries and portal veins by dopaminergic as well as by noradrenergic sympathetic nerves.
At first, the portal veins are connected by using cuff technique before removal of the recipient's liver and then the supra- and infrahepatic venae cavae are anastomosed.
A suspension of iodized oil and anticancer agent was injected into the portal veins of 20 rats with hepatic carcinoma.
