Abstract

In this experimental study the authors report an experience in the evaluation of hepatic blood flow with intraoperative echo-Doppler during orthotopic liver transplantation and side-to-side or end-to-side portacaval shunt. Doppler ultrasonography studied the flow of portal vein, hepatic artery and inferior vena cava before the recipient hepatectomy, and after reperfusion during liver grafting. Furthermore echo-Doppler of the portal system was performed to confirm portacaval shunt efficacy. Usually intraoperative Doppler ultrasonography may give informations about the patency of the shunt and regarding the development of early hepatic artery thrombosis during liver transplantation, but often unclear is the exact evaluation of the velocity of the blood flow through the liver. Further experimental studies and clinical evaluations need to find safe parameters and markers of vascular alteration using this superior diagnostic procedure.
