BACKGROUND & AIMS: Statins improve hepatic endothelial function and liver fibrosis in experimental models of cirrhosis, thus they have been proposed as therapeutic options to ameliorate portal hypertension syndrome. The transcription factor Kruppel-like factor 2 (KLF2) may be induced...

Liver failure is the major cause of death following liver resection. Post-resection portal venous pressure (PVP) predicts liver failure, is implicated in its pathogenesis, and when PVP is reduced, rates of liver dysfunction decrease. The aim of the present...

AIM: This study aimed to investigate the effect of microbubble-enhanced ultrasound (MEUS) combined with prothrombin on regional hepatic circulation and microwave ablation (MWA) in rabbit livers.MATERIALS AND METHODS: High-pressureamplitude therapeutic ultrasound (TUS) was used to treat 52 surgically exposed...

Elderly patients have a higher incidence of morbidity and mortality due to infectious diseases. Because most immune functions in the elderly differ compared with those in younger subjects, we studied the effect of the immunomodulating agent G-CSF on endotoxic...

The subtype of endothelin receptor that mediates metabolic and hemodynamic effects of circulating endothelin was explored using perfused rat liver. Infusion of endothelin (ET)-1 or ET-3 into the portal vein at a concentration of 0.3 nM increased glucose and...

We evaluated the effects of a substrate in the biosynthesis of nitric oxide (NO)-l-arginine (LARG)-on hepatic lesions caused by ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rabbit livers. Rabbits were pretreated with LARG (150 mg/kg IV) or saline solution 0.9% (SS) before...

BACKGROUND: This prospective study evaluated the effect of bevacizumab on the hypertrophy of the future liver remnant (FLR) after portal vein occlusion (PVO) before major hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases.METHODS: Twenty-seven patients with colorectal liver metastases treated with preoperative...

Dopamine and norepinephrine are widely used as first line agents to correct hypotension in patients with acute circulatory failure. There has been considerable debate in recent years as to whether one is better than the other. Both drugs can...

The present study was undertaken to investigate hepatic microcirculatory response following partial portal vein ligation (PPVL) in rats. Portal pressure was markedly increased 2-6 wk after PPVL, but no significant reduction in sinusoidal perfusion and hepatocellular injury were detected....
