The article evaluates liver haemodynamic and metabolic activity during normothermic extracorporear liver perfusion in non-heartbeating donors (NHBD) and HBD models. For this purpose livers were retrieved from New Zealand white rabbits. It was found that perfusate sodium concentration in NHBD group were significantly lower than the HBD group. NHBD damage is reflected in reduced perfusate sodium concentration and increased perfusate gIucose concentration. Similarly in situ warm ischaemia increases portal resistance and reduces portal flow.
