In these studies, portal vein and hepatic vein diameters are combined, their waveform changes, and the transient time is estimated using contrast-enhanced ultrasonography.
It is likely that the shunt failed acutely due to inadequate extension of the initial stent-graft into the hepatic vein.
Then the hepatic artery, portal vein and hepatic vein of the graft to be received are clamped and cut and the graft is transported to the back-table for the preservation process.

01) in the portal, hepatic vein and artery in goats fed LF diets as compared with HF diets.
Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a conglomerate of dilated vessels in the region of the porta hepatis with an intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunt, also known as a portal hepatic venous shunt, between the right portal vein and the middle hepatic vein (Figs 1a and 1b).
Magnetic resonance revealed two cystic lesions; the first was located between the middle hepatic vein and the right hepatic vein, with a diameter of 6 x 6 cm, with sub-capsular enhancement, without septa or nodules; the second lesion occupied the whole right lobe of liver with multiple enhancing septa.
The third stage of bleeding may occur from parenchyma at the resection margin or from divided hepatic vein branches after completion of the transection.
They focus on physiological changes in liver function tests during normal pregnancy; liver disease not specific to pregnancy, such as viral hepatitis, gall stone and biliary disease, hepatic vein thrombosis, primary biliary cirrhosis, hepatic adenoma, Wilson disease, and portal hypertension; liver disease unique to pregnancy, including hyperemesis gravidarum, intrahepatic cholestasis, preeclampsia-induced liver disease and HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, and low platelets) syndrome, and the acute fatty liver; and transplantation.
