MEASUREMENT OF INTRAHEPATIC SHUNTED BLOOD FLOW BY MEANS OF D-GALACTOSE-1-C14 IN EXPERIMENTAL HEPATIC INJURIES
- Electromagnetic Flowmetry in Bypass Shunt During Carotid Endarterectomy. Owen, William S. // Angiology;Mar1987, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p253
By use of a custom-designed electromagnetic flow probe, continuous measurement of flow in a bypass shunt system is possible. This permits real-time evaluation of shunt function during carotid endarterectomy and will allow evaluation of changes made in future shunt designs. Although limited to...

- Effects of acetaminophen on hepatic microcirculation in mice. Ito, Yoshiya; Machen, Nancy W.; Abril, Edward R.; McCuskey, Robert S. // Comparative Hepatology;2004 Supplement 1, Vol. 3, pS33
A conference paper on the effects of acetaminophen (APAP) on hepatic microcirculation in mice is presented. Results demonstrate early results in the hepatic microvasculature following oral gavage with a toxic dose of APA, notably the swelling of sinusoidal endothelial cells (SECs) and activated...
- Spontaneous Hepatic Rupture with Intraperitoneal Hemorrhage without Underlying Etiology: A Report of Two Cases. Klein, Kristin; Shapiro, A. M. James // ISRN Surgery;2011, Special section p1
Spontaneous hepatic rupture is a rare event most often occurring in association with underlying liver disease or pregnancy. We report two unusual cases of hepatic rupture without any identifiable pathology, trauma, or comorbid conditions.

Interventional radiologists are physicians who specialize in minimally invasive targeted therapies, offering the most in-depth knowledge of the less invasive therapies that are available and diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. Interventional radiologists offer treatments...
- Initial administration of hydroxyethyl starch vs lactated Ringer after liver trauma in the pig. M. Zaar; B. Lauritzen; N. H. Secher; T. Krantz; H. B. Nielsen; P. L. Madsen; P. I. Johansson // BJA: The British Journal of Anaesthesia;Feb2009, Vol. 102 Issue 2, p221
Background This study tested the circulatory effectiveness of post-trauma administration of a large intravascular volume expander, hydroxyethyl starch 130/0.4 (HES), vs standard lactated Ringers solution (RL). Methods Liver injury was inflicted in 14 pigs [31 (4) kg; mean (sd)] and treatment...
- Effects of acoustic nonlinearity and blood flow cooling during HIFU treatment. Solovchuk, Maxim A.; Sheu, Tony W. H.; Thiriet, Marc // AIP Conference Proceedings;Nov2012, Vol. 1503 Issue 1, p83
The present study is aimed at predicting liver tumor temperature during a high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) thermal ablation in a patient-specific liver geometry. The model comprises the nonlinear Westervelt equation and bioheat equations in liver and blood vessel. The nonlinear...
