abstract

  • Hepatic tissue perfusion was measured by the krypton-85 clearance technique during surgery in four patients with bleeding esophageal varices before and immediately after Warren distal splenorenal shunt. No significant reduction in perfusion was found in any patient, thus confirming the concept that this type of portasystemic shunt maintains portal flow to the liver.
