ABSTRACT
An angiographic pathophysiologic correlation of hepatic arterial changes in cirrhosis is presented. The angiographic findings include: increased hepatic arterial blood flow and size of the hepatic artery, reflux on superior mesenteric artery injection into pancreaticoduodenal, gastroduodenal and hepatic and splenic arteries, hepatic parenchymal blush in advanced cirrhosis, and increased tortuosity of hepatic arterial branches. The functional and organic changes accounting for these angiographic findings in cirrhosis are discussed.

    The evacuation of the bile into the region of the hepatic hilus leads to a considerable reduction in the renal blood flow, owing to reflexogenous vascular contraction. In the right kidney the maximal disturbances were found after 96 hours and normalization after 192 hours. In the left kidney the...
