Title:
Direct assessment and distribution of regional portal blood flow in the pig by means of fluorescent microspheres. 
Abstract:
Measurement of regional organ blood flow by means of fluorescent microspheres (FM) is an accepted method. However, determination of regional portal blood flow (RPBF) cannot be performed by microspheres owing to the entrapment of the spheres in the upstream capillary bed of the splanchnic organs. We hypothesized that an adequate experimental setting would enable us to measure RPBF by means of FM and to analyze its distribution within the pig liver. A mixing chamber for the injection of FM was dev...    »
