Liver Function Tests
Mitochondria in hepatocytes. As in all mitochondria, there are an outer membrane and an inner membrane, together creating two separate mitochondrial compartments: the internal matrix space and a much narrower intermembrane space. In the liver mitochondrion, an estimated 67% of the total mitochondrial proteins is located in the matrix. (From Alberts et al., Molecular Biology of the Cell, 2d ed, p343-4)
Drug-Induced Liver Injury
Liver Failure, Acute
A form of rapid-onset LIVER FAILURE, also known as fulminant hepatic failure, caused by severe liver injury or massive loss of HEPATOCYTES. It is characterized by sudden development of liver dysfunction and JAUNDICE. Acute liver failure may progress to exhibit cerebral dysfunction even HEPATIC COMA depending on the etiology that includes hepatic ISCHEMIA, drug toxicity, malignant infiltration, and viral hepatitis such as post-transfusion HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS C.
Liver Diseases, Alcoholic
Liver Cirrhosis, Experimental
Liver Cirrhosis, Alcoholic
Rats, Inbred Strains
A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.
Blood Circulation Time
End Stage Liver Disease
Accumulation of a drug or chemical substance in various organs (including those not relevant to its pharmacologic or therapeutic action). This distribution depends on the blood flow or perfusion rate of the organ, the ability of the drug to penetrate organ membranes, tissue specificity, protein binding. The distribution is usually expressed as tissue to plasma ratios.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
Disease Models, Animal
Cytochrome P-450 Enzyme System
A superfamily of hundreds of closely related HEMEPROTEINS found throughout the phylogenetic spectrum, from animals, plants, fungi, to bacteria. They include numerous complex monooxygenases (MIXED FUNCTION OXYGENASES). In animals, these P-450 enzymes serve two major functions: (1) biosynthesis of steroids, fatty acids, and bile acids; (2) metabolism of endogenous and a wide variety of exogenous substrates, such as toxins and drugs (BIOTRANSFORMATION). They are classified, according to their sequence similarities rather than functions, into CYP gene families (>40% homology) and subfamilies (>59% homology). For example, enzymes from the CYP1, CYP2, and CYP3 gene families are responsible for most drug metabolism.
Blood Flow Velocity
Molecular Sequence Data
Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.
Metabolic Clearance Rate
Any of various animals that constitute the family Suidae and comprise stout-bodied, short-legged omnivorous mammals with thick skin, usually covered with coarse bristles, a rather long mobile snout, and small tail. Included are the genera Babyrousa, Phacochoerus (wart hogs), and Sus, the latter containing the domestic pig (see SUS SCROFA).
Dose-Response Relationship, Drug
Bile Acids and Salts
Steroid acids and salts. The primary bile acids are derived from cholesterol in the liver and usually conjugated with glycine or taurine. The secondary bile acids are further modified by bacteria in the intestine. They play an important role in the digestion and absorption of fat. They have also been used pharmacologically, especially in the treatment of gallstones.
Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
A highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products. It includes a fetal portion (CHORIONIC VILLI) derived from TROPHOBLASTS and a maternal portion (DECIDUA) derived from the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The placenta produces an array of steroid, protein and peptide hormones (PLACENTAL HORMONES).
The chemical alteration of an exogenous substance by or in a biological system. The alteration may inactivate the compound or it may result in the production of an active metabolite of an inactive parent compound. The alterations may be divided into METABOLIC DETOXICATION, PHASE I and METABOLIC DETOXICATION, PHASE II.
Control of ketogenesis from amino acids. IV. Tissue specificity in oxidation of leucine, tyrosine, and lysine. (1/928)In vitro and in vivo studies were made on the tissue specificity of oxidation of the ketogenic amino acids, leucine, tyrosine, and lysine. In in vitro studies the abilities of slices of various tissues of rats to form 14CO2 from 14C-amino acids were examined. With liver, but not kidney slices, addition of alpha-ketoglutarate was required for the maximum activities with these amino acids. Among the various tissues tested, kidney had the highest activity for lysine oxidation, followed by liver; other tissues showed very low activity. Kidney also had the highest activity for leucine oxidation, followed by diaphragm; liver and adipose tissue had lower activities. Liver had the highest activity for tyrosine oxidation, but kidney also showed considerable activity; other tissues had negligible activity. In in vivo studies the blood flow through the liver or kidney was stopped by ligation of the blood vessels. Then labeled amino acids were injected and recovery of radioactivity in respiratory 14CO2 was measured. In contrast to results with slices, no difference was found in the respiratory 14CO2 when the renal blood vessels were or were not ligated. On the contrary ligation of the hepatic vessels suppressed the oxidations of lysine and tyrosine completely and that of leucine partially. Thus in vivo, lysine and tyrosine seem to be metabolized mainly in the liver, whereas leucine is metabolized mostly in extrahepatic tissues and partly in liver. Use of tissue slices seems to be of only limited value in elucidating the metabolisms of these amino acids. (+info)
Pulsed Doppler ultrasonographic evaluation of portal blood flow in dogs with experimental portal vein branch ligation. (2/928)Portal blood flow was measured using pulsed Doppler ultrasound in 6 dogs before and after left portal vein branch ligation. Mean portal vein blood flow velocity and mean portal vein blood flow were significantly reduced after ligation and the congestion index was increased (p < 0.01). Pulsed Doppler ultrasound studies provide valuable physiological information which may assist the clinician with the diagnosis of canine hepatic circulatory disorders. (+info)
Lobar decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation in hilar cholangiocarcinoma. (3/928)Hilar cholangiocarcinoma can obstruct hepatic ducts and involve the portal veins. Both biliary stasis and decrease in portal venous flow are known to reduce 99mTc-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid-galactosyl human serum albumin (GSA) accumulation. The specific relationship between these pathological conditions due to hilar cholangiocarcinomas and 99mTc-GSA accumulation has never been clarified. METHODS: Sixteen patients with hilar cholangiocarcinomas who underwent 99mTc-GSA liver scintigraphy were reviewed. The relationship between significant decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation and lobar biliary stasis, or decrease in the portal venous flow, was evaluated. Average counts of region of interest placed in both right and left lobes were compared in the same transaxial SPECT section. Count ratios of right and left lobes were calculated. RESULTS: Significant lobar decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation was observed in 6 of the 16 patients. Ipsilateral portal venous stenosis or obstruction was seen in all these 6 patients, whereas ipsilateral portal venous stenosis or obstruction was seen in only 1 of the other 10 patients. Symmetric bile duct dilatation was seen in 13 patients, and asymmetric bile duct dilatation was seen in 3. Lobar decrease in 99mTc-GSA accumulation correlated well with decrease in ipsilateral portal venous flow (P < 0.0005). The count ratio was significantly reduced when unilateral portal venous flow decreased (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Using 99mTc-GSA liver scintigraphy, we can predict lobar decrease in ipsilateral portal venous flow and monitor hepatic functional lateralities in patients with hilar cholangiocarcinomas.

Preserved arterial flow secures hepatic oxygenation during haemorrhage in the pig. (4/928)1. This study examined the extent of liver perfusion and its oxygenation during progressive haemorrhage. We examined hepatic arterial flow and hepatic oxygenation following the reduced portal flow during haemorrhage in 18 pigs. The hepatic surface oxygenation was assessed by near-infrared spectroscopy and the hepatic metabolism of oxygen, lactate and catecholamines determined the adequacy of the hepatic flow. 2. Stepwise haemorrhage until circulatory collapse resulted in proportional reductions in cardiac output and in arterial, central venous and pulmonary wedge pressures. While heart rate increased, pulmonary arterial pressure remained stable. In addition, renal blood flow decreased, renal vascular resistance increased and there was elevated noradrenaline spill-over. Further, renal surface oxygenation was lowered from the onset of haemorrhage. 3. Similarly, the portal blood flow was reduced in response to haemorrhage, and, as for the renal flow, the reduced splanchnic blood flow was associated with an elevated noradrenaline spill-over. In contrast, hepatic arterial blood flow was only slightly reduced by haemorrhage, and surface oxygenation did not change. The hepatic oxygen uptake was maintained until the blood loss represented more than 30 % of the estimated blood volume. At 30 % reduced blood volume, hepatic catecholamine uptake was reduced, and the lactate uptake approached zero. 4. Subsequent reduction of cardiac output and portal blood flow elicited a selective dilatation of the hepatic arterial vascular bed. Due to this dilatation liver blood flow and hepatic cell oxygenation and metabolism were preserved prior to circulatory collapse. (+info)
Hepatosplanchnic haemodynamics and renal blood flow and function in rats with liver failure. (5/928)BACKGROUND: Massive liver necrosis, characteristic of acute liver failure, may affect hepatosplanchnic haemodynamics, and contribute to the alterations in renal haemodynamics and function. AIMS: To investigate the relation between hepatosplanchnic haemodynamics, including portal systemic shunting, and renal blood flow and function in rats with acute liver failure. METHODS: Liver failure was induced in male Wistar rats by intraperitoneal injection of 1.1 g/kg of D(+)-galactosamine hydrochloride. The parameters assessed included; systemic, hepatosplanchnic, and renal blood flow (57Co microsphere method); portal-systemic shunting and intrarenal shunting (consecutive intrasplenic, intraportal, or renal arterial injections of 99mTc methylene diphosphonate and 99mTc albumin microspheres); arterial blood pressure and portal pressure; renal function; and liver function (liver function tests and 14C aminopyrine breath test). RESULTS: Progressive liver dysfunction was accompanied by the development of a hyperdynamic circulation, a highly significant decrease in renal blood flow and function, and an increase in intrarenal shunting 36, 42, and 48 hours after administration of D-galactosamine. The alterations in renal blood flow and function were accompanied by significant increases in portal pressure, portal venous inflow, and intrahepatic portal systemic shunting in galactosamine treated rats compared with controls. There was a significant correlation between changes in renal blood flow and changes in portal pressure, intrahepatic portal systemic shunting, and deterioration in liver function (r = 0.8, p < 0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study suggest that both increased intrahepatic portal systemic shunting and hepatocyte impairment may contribute to alterations in renal haemodynamics and function.

Assessment of the mechanism of juxtacrine activation and adhesion of leukocytes in liver microcirculation. (6/928)Leukotriene C4 (LTC4), histamine, and other mediators can induce expression of P-selectin and platelet-activating factor (PAF) on venular endothelium to recruit leukocytes in vivo and in vitro via a juxtacrine mechanism of adhesion. The objective of this study was to assess the effect of histamine and LTC4 on the leukocyte recruitment in the liver and to study the components and molecular mechanisms involved in this process. We visualized the hepatic microvasculature using intravital microscopy and we determined that LTC4 (20 nM) but not histamine (0.1, 0.3, or 1 mM) induced leukocyte recruitment in the liver microcirculation. Histamine could induce leukocyte recruitment but only in the presence of an antihistaminase. The LTC4-induced leukocyte recruitment occurred primarily in sinusoids (not venules) and was not inhibitable by three different anti-P-selectin antibodies (5H1, RMP-1, and RB40). Leukocyte recruitment in P-selectin-deficient mice, intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1)-deficient mice, and mice treated with a PAF antagonist was of the same magnitude as in wild-type animals in response to LTC4. Although PAF alone could induce adhesion in both sinusoids and postsinusoidal venules, this chemotactic agent was not involved in LTC4-induced adhesion in the liver. Finally, an overlapping role for P-selectin and ICAM-1 was ruled out as LTC4 induced leukocyte recruitment in P-selectin and ICAM-1 double-deficient mice. These data demonstrate that LTC4 does not activate the known early mechanisms of leukocyte recruitment, including P-selectin, PAF, or ICAM-1 in the hepatic microvasculature. (+info)
Total and functional hepatic blood flow decrease in parallel with ageing. (7/928)OBJECTIVES: To study changes in hepatic blood flow with age. DESIGN: Functional hepatic flow (FHF) and total hepatic flow (THF) were determined by non-invasive methods in 40 normal subjects in four age groups (<45, 45-60, 61-75 and >75 years). All subjects had normal routine liver function tests and no history of liver disease. RESULTS: THF was measured by pulsed echo-Doppler, as the sum of portal and hepatic artery blood flow; FHF was measured by the hepatic clearance of D-sorbitol. THF significantly decreased with age, particularly in subjects over 75 (from 1445+/-220 ml/min to 1020+/-148; P<0.001), and a similar reduction was observed in FHF (from 1514+/-250 ml/min to 1015+/-163; P<0.001). THF and FHF were strictly correlated in the whole population (r = 0.871; P<0.001) and both correlated with age (r = -0.510 and r = -0.596; P<0.005). CONCLUSION: With ageing there is a reduction of hepatic blood flow without any additional intrahepatic shunting. (+info)
A new sample-processing unit for the fluorescent microsphere method. (8/928)The use of fluorescent-labeled microspheres (FM) for measurement of regional blood flow is an attractive alternative to the use of radioactive-labeled microspheres. In the FM method the FM have to be completely recovered from the tissue samples in a time- and labor-intensive process. For this reason, a considerable loss of FM is possible. The aim of this study was to develop a filtration device that allows the tissue sample to remain in a single container throughout the procedure to make the process easier and to avoid the loss of FM. The core of the sample-processing unit (SPU) is a single-tube filtration device with a polyamide wire mesh. The protocol for processing tissue from different organs (heart, kidney, liver, spleen, intestine, muscle, bone, lung, brain) was modified and thus shortened significantly. Furthermore, the SPU allows direct filtration of the blood reference sample without previous digestion. Different experiments showed that the SPU in combination with the new protocol excludes the loss of 15-micrometers FM. The modifications of the whole procedure render it faster and highly standardized. (+info)
Effect of Propranolol on Hepatic Blood Flow in Normal and Portal Hypertensive Rats | Clinical Science
1. The effects of propranolol on heart rate, arterial pressure, portal venous pressure and fractional hepatic blood flow were studied in rats with hepatic artery ligature or with portal vein stenosis, and in sham-operated rats. The effect of propranolol on cardiac output was also studied in normal rats.. 2. In rats with hepatic artery ligature or with portal vein stenosis, and in sham-operated rats, propranolol decreased heart rate and portal venous pressure significantly and did not alter arterial pressure. Propranolol decreased fractional hepatic blood flow significantly in rats with hepatic artery ligature, but did not change hepatic blood flow in rats with portal vein stenosis or in sham-operated rats.. 3. We conclude therefore that: (a) propranolol decreases portal venous pressure in rats; (b) this decrease in portal venous pressure results in a reduction in portal blood flow which is related, in part, to a reduction in cardiac output; (c) propranolol does not alter hepatic blood flow in ...
Numerical simulation of the hepatic circulation. - Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences
Availability of donor livers and the relatively short preservation time limit the success of liver transplantation. The use of hypothermic machine perfusion could pave the way for expansion of the donor pool. To better define optimal settings of such a device, the feasibility of using a numerical simulation model of the hepatic circulation is determined. Hemodynamics in the hepatic arterial, portal venous and hepatic venous compartments of the hepatic vascular tree was modelled using an electrical analogue. Calculated pressure and flow profiles throughout the liver were in accordance with physiologic profiles in the total circulatory system. Comparison of calculated flow values with normal control values showed a discrepancy that was explained by inaccurate diameter input data. Until more precise methods for determining vascular dimensions become available, redefining vessel diameter makes the simulation model perfectly suitable for predicting influences of temperature and/or viscosity on hepatic

The role of ATP and adenosine in the control of hepatic blood flow in the rabbit liver in vivo | Comparative Hepatology | Full...
The role of adenosine and ATP in the regulation of hepatic arterial blood flow in the buffer response was studied in vitro and in a new in vivo model in the rabbit. The model achieves portal-systemic diversion by insertion of a silicone rubber prosthesis between the portal vein and inferior vena cava and avoids alterations in systemic haemodynamics. Hepatic arterial (HA) blood flow increased in response to reduced portal venous (PV) blood flow, the buffer response, from 19.4 (3.3) ml min-1 100 g-1 to 25.6 (4.3) ml min-1 100 g-1 (mean (SE), p | 0.05, Students paired t-test). This represented a buffering capacity of 18.7 (5.2) %. Intra-portal injections of ATP or adenosine (1 micrograms kg-1-0.5 mg kg-1) elicited immediate increases in HA blood flow to give -log ED50 values of 2.0 and 1.7 mg kg-1 for ATP and adenosine respectively. Injection of ATP and adenosine had no measurable effect on PV flow. In vitro, using an isolated dual-perfused rabbit liver preparation, the addition of 8

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether the selective iNOS-inhibition using 1400W is able to attenuate the decrease of excretory liver function in a clinically relevant model of long-term, hyperdynamic porcine endotoxemia. DESIGN AND SETTING: Prospective experimental study in the animal laboratory in a university hospital. SUBJECTS: twenty-one domestic pigs. INTERVENTIONS: Pigs were anaesthetized, mechanically ventilated, and instrumented. After 12 h of continuous i.v. endotoxin (LPS) infusion pigs received either no drug (ETX, n = 12) or 1400W, titrated to maintain mean arterial pressure (MAP) at pre-endotoxin level (n = 9). Measurements were obtained before, 12 h and 24 h after starting LPS infusion. MEASUREMENTS AND RESULTS: Excretory liver function was assessed by quantitative bile excretion, biliary ICG excretion, biliary HCO3 excretion and PDR of ICG. Our measurements included also the portal venous and hepatic arterial blood flow, the regional O2-exchange and the expiratory NO amount. Despite ...
Lithia Water - Edgar Cayce Health Care
Cayce recommended the use of Lithia when discussing the digestive system, including intestinal health, proper assimilation and elimination, kidneys and liver function.. And there are the tendencies for acidity through the digestive system. This tends to produce irritation to the kidneys, and to slow the eliminations from the body; though we do not find any organic disturbance with kidneys. This is rather the functional disturbance. About three times a week we would take a lithia tablet in a large tumbler of water. - Cayce. At all times drink plenty of water. Occasionally, - say once a week, - put a lithia tablet in a glass of water and drink it. This will stimulate better circulation and set up better drainage through the whole of the alimentary canal, especially as related to the hepatic circulation; that is, the circulation between the liver, the kidneys, and the flow through the alimentary areas of the body. -Cayce. As to those properties taken for the mucus producing portions in system, and ...

To check the hypothesis that myricitrin (MYR) improves type 2 diabetes, the effect was examined by us of MYR in hyperglycemia, blood sugar intolerance, hepatic steatosis, and irritation in high-fat diet plan (HFD) and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced type 2 diabetic mice. MYR also protects carbon tetrachloride-intoxicated mice against liver organ damage through many systems that involve its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fibrotic actions . However, the consequences of MYR on hepatic blood sugar and lipid legislation in animal types of type 2 diabetes arent fully known to time. Although its aglycone myricetin continues to be suggested to possess potential for the treating type 2 diabetes [9,10,11], immediate absorption from the glycosylated type and an increased gastrointestinal balance of MYR than myricetin had been reported [12,13,14]. As a result, it is needed to evaluate the ramifications of MYR on type 2 diabetes. Many nongenetic mouse versions have been utilized to gain ...

Clinically, the Valsalva maneuver is considered as main cause of defecation syncope and surgery Hepatic hemodynamics during Valsalva maneuver performed in a patient with functional suprahepatic inferior vana cava (IVC) obstruction during the Valsalva maneuver . Collapsed IVC showed during the maneuver in normal healthy subjects using ultrasonography study, but IVC howed angular appearance and not collapsed during the maneuver in the venography study [10,11]. The change of IVC during the maneuver is ambiguous and hemodynamic contribution of hepatic vein and portal vein during the maneuver has not been studied in normal healthy subjects. Duplex Doppler ultrasonography of the liver provides important information about liver condition [11,13]. Hepatic vein flow depends on hepatic parenchymal compliance, thoracoabdominal pressure, and right atrial pressure. It is known that hepatic vein Doppler waveform is triphasic pattern which is composed of two anterograde flow peaks toward the heart and one ...
Protective role of NO in hepatic microcirculatory dysfunction during endotoxemia. - Semantic Scholar
Nitric oxide (NO) has been reported to have a protective function in attenuating hepatic injury during endotoxemia or sepsis. As a result, the role of NO in attenuating the hepatic microcirculatory alterations associated with endotoxemia was investigated in mice by in vivo microscopy. The livers were examined 2 h after intravenous injection of Escherichia coli 0111:B4 lipopolysaccharide (LPS) alone or in combination with inhibitors of the synthesis of NO, NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester or NG-monomethyl-L-arginine. In the animals treated with the combination of NO synthase inhibitors and LPS, leukocyte adherence was increased threefold above that in animals treated with LPS alone. This was accompanied by a 33% reduction in sinusoidal blood flow. Simultaneous administration of L-arginine, but not D-arginine, eliminated these microcirculatory disturbances. The results demonstrate that inhibition of LPS-stimulated NO production results in an early hepatic microvascular inflammatory response to a dose of
Measurement of normal portal venous blood flow by Doppler ultrasound. | Gut
The volume flow rate of blood in the portal vein was measured using a duplex ultrasound system. The many errors inherent in the duplex method were assessed with particular reference to the portal vein and appropriate correction factors were obtained by in vitro calibration. The effect of posture on flow was investigated by examining 45 healthy volunteers in three different positions; standing, supine and tilted head down at 20 degrees from the horizontal. The mean volume blood flow in the supine position was 864 (188)ml/min (mean 1SD). When standing, the mean volume blood flow was significantly reduced by 26% to 662 (169)ml/min. There was, however, no significant difference between flow when supine and when tilted head down at 20 degrees from the horizontal.. ...

Frog blood in liver blood vessel, SEM - Stock Image C032/4707 - Science Photo Library
Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) Frog blood in liver blood vessel (coqui, Eleutherodactylus coqui). Frogs have nucleated red blood cells. In the amphibian circulatory system blood accumulates oxygen in the lungs and is then returned to the heart before being pumped through the rest of the circulatory system. Mixing between oxygenated and deoxygenated blood occurs as blood returning to the heart from the lungs is mixed with incoming blood from the body. Frogs depend on cutaneous respiration for their oxygen supply. In this process oxygen from the air is drawn into a frogs body by the blood vessels that lie close to the skin. Waste gas and carbon dioxide are also released the same way. Magnification: x240 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres. - Stock Image C032/4707
AKC Canine Health Foundation
Portosystemic vascular Anomalies (PSVAs), also known as shunts, defines a syndrome in which the portal blood bypasses the liver and enters systemic circlation. Life-threatening metabolic derangements occur if portal blood is not filtered throught the liver for detoxification of toxic metabolic byproducts produced or absorbed from the spleen and gastrointestinal system. The definitive diagnosis of PSVAs has been challenging due to the variability in location and the tortuosity of the PSVAs. The cross-sectional imaging techniques, like MR, are proposed to be highly accurate in delineating single intrahepatic, single extrahepatic, and multiple extrahepatic vessels. The goal of the project is to determine if MR can distinguish normal hepatic parenchyma from hepatic microvascular dysplasia.

Protective effects of hydrogen enriched saline on liver ischemia reperfusion injury by reducing oxidative stress and HMGB1...
The nuclear protein high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a key trigger for the inflammatory reaction during liver ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI). Hydrogen treatment was recently associated with down-regulation of the expression of HMGB1 and pro-inflammatory cytokines during sepsis and myocardial IRI, but it is not known whether hydrogen has an effect on HMGB1 in liver IRI. A rat model of 60 minutes 70% partial liver ischemia reperfusion injury was used. Hydrogen enriched saline (2.5, 5 or 10 ml/kg) was injected intraperitoneally 10 minutes before hepatic reperfusion. Liver injury was assessed by serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) enzyme levels and histological changes. We also measured malondialdehyde (MDA), hydroxynonenal (HNE) and 8-hydroxy-guanosine (8-OH-G) levels as markers of the peroxidation injury induced by reactive oxygen species (ROS). In addition, pro-inflammatory cytokines including TNF-α and IL-6, and high mobility group box B1 protein (HMGB1) were measured as markers of post
Effects of hepatic ischaemia/reperfusion injury in a rabbit model of Indocyanine Green clearance | Clinical Science | Portland...
Hepatic ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is a major cause of primary non-function of the graft after liver transplantation. The ability to assess the severity of ischaemic injury would be of prognostic value and allow the possibility of therapeutic interventions. Currently there is no reliable clinical method for assessing the severity of hepatic ischaemic injury. The hepatic handling of Indocyanine Green as a technique for monitoring the severity of I/R injury has been investigated in the present study. A rabbit model of lobar ischaemia was used. At laparotomy, left lobe hepatic ischaemia was produced for 30, 45 or 60min, followed by 60min of reperfusion. Liver function tests, bile excretion and flow in the hepatic microcirculation were measured in animals subjected to I/R injury and in controls. Indocyanine Green was given after reperfusion and its concentration was measured directly in the liver using near-infrared spectroscopy. Indocyanine Green hepatic uptake and excretion rates were ...
Effects of nitric oxide on hemodynamic changes and metabolism following acute hepatic inflow occlusion in pigs | Critical Care ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of nitric oxide on systemic hemodynamics and oxygen metabolism following acute hepatic inflow occlusion. Fourteen mongrel pigs received solvent (control group, n = 4), the nitric synthesis inhibitor NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME group, n = 5), or the substrate for nitric oxide synthesis L-arginine (L-arginine group, n = 5) 30 min before hepatic inflow occlusion. Following 30 min of hepatic ischemia, all livers were reperfused. While all pigs in the control group and L-arginine group survived more than 7 days after reperfusion, two of five pigs in the L-NAME group died during hepatic ischemia period. However, venous oxygen saturation was significantly lower during and after ischemic period, oxygen extraction ratio was significantly higher during hepatic ischemic period in L-NAME group, and systemic vascular resistance was also significantly higher 5 and 15 min after hepatic inflow occlusion. Furthermore, lactate/pyruvate ratio was ...
Simvastatin in Portal Hypertension | Topics in Evidence-Based Pharmacy Practice | AccessPharmacy | McGraw-Hill Medical
Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis are the 12th leading cause of death in the United States leading to nearly 28,000 deaths per year.1 Portal hypertension in patients with cirrhosis accounts for a great deal of morbidity and mortality. It is associated with gastroesophageal varices, ascites, and variceal hemorrhage and increased risk of bacterial infection. Treatment of portal hypertension can reduce the incidence of these sequelae. The mainstay of treatment in portal hypertension is non-selective beta-blockers such as propranolol or nadolol. However, many patients are unable to tolerate the titration of these drugs to appropriate therapeutic doses or have relative contraindications to beta blocker therapy such as asthma or insulin dependent diabetes with risk of hypoglycemia.1,2 Additional treatment options either in addition to or instead of beta blockers, that act selectively on the hepatic circulation are needed. HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors have been proposed as a class of drugs that may ...
Liver Fat Content in Type 2 Diabetes: Relationship With Hepatic Perfusion and Substrate Metabolism | Diabetes
Although flow through portal vein and hepatic artery is readily accessible using Doppler sonography, (22,23) in vivo studies on human hepatic (parenchymal) perfusion are limited due to the often (highly) invasive methodology required. Indirect methods for measuring hepatic blood flow have been used and include the assessment of clearance or dilution of a dye or marker (gas or microspheres), which have a wider range of clinical applicability than the direct methods (38). Moreover, noninvasive measurements of hepatic perfusion using PET with the freely diffusible flow tracer [15O]H2O have been shown to provide reliable estimates of hepatic blood flow, when taking into account the dual input from hepatic artery and vena porta (27,28). In the current study, decreased hepatic parenchymal perfusion was observed in type 2 diabetic patients with increased liver triglyceride content but not in those type 2 diabetic patients with low liver triglyceride content, as compared with control subjects, implying ...
Measurements of the Livers Total Blood Flow and Regional Perfusion
This chapter provides an overview of methods for the measurement of hepatic blood flow for the whole liver and hepatic blood perfusion per unit volume of liver tissue. Measurement of the total flow rate is performed by intravenous infusion of a test substance that is eliminated only by the liver, measurements of steady-state arterial and liver venous concentration differences across the organ and calculation by Ficks principle. Indocyanine green (ICG) has been validated as a suitable test substance for such measurements in studies using pigs and is widely used in human studies. Steady-state clearance measurements can be used to measure the total hepatic flow rate for substances with a liver vein concentration that is negligible when compared to the arterial concentration. Sorbitol has been validated as a suitable test substance in healthy subjects (with corrections for urinary excretion) for such measurements. Currently, no other clearance methods have proven suitable. Hepatic blood perfusion ...
An Overview of Hepatic Portal Circulation
Hepatic portal circulation helps the liver eliminate toxins from the body and convert glycogen to glucose for energy. When liver function declines, the liver does not carry out its circulatory functions properly. This results in a buildup of waste products in the blood.
Portal vein - Wikipedia
The portal vein and hepatic arteries form the livers dual blood supply. Approximately 75% of hepatic blood flow is derived from the portal vein, while the remainder is from the hepatic arteries. Unlike most veins, the portal vein does not drain into the heart. Rather, it is part of a portal venous system that delivers venous blood into another capillary system, the hepatic sinusoids of the liver. In carrying venous blood from the gastrointestinal tract to the liver, the portal vein accomplishes two tasks: it supplies the liver with metabolic substrates and it ensures that substances ingested are first processed by the liver before reaching the systemic circulation. This accomplishes two things. First, possible toxins that may be ingested can be detoxified by the hepatocytes before they are released into the systemic circulation. Second, the liver is the first organ to absorb nutrients just taken in by the intestines. After draining into the liver sinusoids, blood from the liver is drained by ...

Effects of prolonged endotoxemia on liver, skeletal muscle and kidney mitochondrial function | Critical Care | Full Text
The main finding of this study was that prolonged endotoxemia impaired the efficiency of hepatic mitochondrial complex I and complex II respiration, whereas mitochondrial respiration in the skeletal muscle remained unchanged. The altered mitochondrial function occurred despite well-maintained total and microcirculatory hepatic blood flow. In spite of the reduced hepatic mitochondrial RCR, the hepatic oxygen consumption and extraction remained unchanged. The reduced glutamate-dependent RCR in the liver mitochondria was mainly due to an increase in the mitochondrial resting respiration rate, suggesting partial uncoupling of oxygen consumption from ATP production. These results are supported by the well-maintained hepatic oxygen consumption and by the reduction in the ADP:O ratios. The alterations in the succinate-dependent respiration were due to reduced function of the complex II, as suggested by reduced state 3 respiration. The partial uncoupling in the glutamate-dependent and ...
The Ecology of Humans (36-5) The Liver - Spokes of the Wheel
The Liver. Nutrients pass through the liver before entering general circulation throughout the body. The liver is the largest internal organ of the human body, performing more than 500 functions, including digesting fats, synthesizing proteins, filtering poisons and waste products, storing nutrients, and regulating the levels of many chemicals used by the body that flow through the bloodstream. Some ancient civilizations considered the liver to be where the soul resided.. Most organs have a single blood supply. The liver has 2. The hepatic artery delivers oxygen-rich blood from the heart, providing 25% of the livers blood supply.. 75% of the liver blood supply is oxygen depleted but nutrient rich, delivered by the (hepatic) portal vein. This vein carries blood that has collected the harvest of digestion. These nutrients are delivered to the liver for further processing and become either immediate fuel or energy reserve.. All other veins in the body flow to the heart, where they are pumped ...

It was previously shown in a variety of rodent. models that platelets contribute to warm96 and cold97 ischemic injuries. Thus, serotonin might also cause injury in models combining hepatectomy and an ischemic insult such as transplantation. In a series of experiments, we failed to show any negative impacts of serotonin following ischemia/reperfusion injury in the liver, but rather documented a beneficial effect Dasatinib cell line in promoting tissue repair following the ischemic insult.98 The mechanism through which serotonin enhances regeneration is not yet fully clarified. Serotonin may directly act on hepatocytes as a mitogen or may evoke also indirect effects by improving hepatic microcirculation, particularly in the aged liver (P.A. Clavien; unpublished data) or by balancing the acute phase protein reaction by nonparenchymal cells. Those questions are the focus of current research in a number of laboratories.

Joint Annual Meeting ISMRM-ESMRMB 2014
Spin labeling (SL) MRI of the liver has been performed before, but has not been done using Look-Locker readout in humans. We investigated arterial and portal SL-MRI with Look-Locker readout in healthy volunteers to improve quantification by taking regional bolus arrival times into account. Portal venous liver perfusion significantly increased after meal ingestion, while arterial liver perfusion decreased although not significantly. Postprandial portal venous perfusion change based on SL-MRI with LL readout showed fair correlation with portal venous flow changes. SL-MRI is non-invasive and could potentially contribute to diagnosis and treatment monitoring of liver diseases with elimination of contrast-related risks ...
