    Background: Posttransplant portosystemic shunts may result in severe fatty changes, portal vein complications, or graft liver failure because they reduce the effectiveness of portal perfusion through a portal steal phenomenon. However, the indications and timing of surgical and interventional...

    The liver is perfused through the portal vein and the hepatic artery. When its perfusion is assessed using positron emission tomography (PET) and 15O-labeled water (H215O), calculations require a dual blood input function (DIF), i.e., arterial and portal blood activity curves. The former can be...

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the dual hepatic blood supply is altered in healthy pregnant women compared with that in nonpregnant women. Materials and methods: Flow waveforms in common hepatic artery and portal vein were obtained in 67 healthy pregnant women at...
