Abstract

Objectives: Because of their effects on the liver parenchyma after surgery, portal hyperperfusion and hepatic venous congestion are challenging problems for hepatobiliary surgeons. However, the effects of those conditions on Kupffer cells have not been established. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of vascular streams modified by portal hyperperfusion and hepatic venous congestion on Kupffer cell function.
