FIGURE 4.2

Hepatic venous long-circuit preparation with hepatic arterial flow (HAF) recording. Hepatic venous cannula allows measurement of total hepatic blood flow (HBF), control of hepatic venous pressure, and sampling of pure mixed hepatic venous blood. Portal flow is calculated from HBF – HAF. This preparation allows measurement of hepatic hemodynamics and uptake or output of substances quantitated in blood. Reproduced from Lautt WW.
