ABSTRACT

La hipertensión portal es un síndrome complejo producido por un aumento de la resistencia al flujo venoso esplácnico a nivel de la vena porta o sus ramas, con una circulación sistémica hiperdinámica caracterizada por vasodilatación periférica y aumento del gasto cardíaco. El sitio de obstrucción al flujo portal puede ser prehepático (hígado normal), intrahepático (como en la cirrosis) o posthepático (síndrome de BuddChiari). En los pacientes pediátricos, las causas prehepáticas e intrahepáticas se reparten en proporciones casi iguales (aproximadamente el 50 % cada una). La expresión clínica y el impacto individual son muy variados, pero en todos los casos expresan un deterioro en la salud de los pacientes y la necesidad de corregir el problema, tanto en sus consecuencias como, idealmente, en sus causas.


Portal hypertension is a complex syndrome caused by increased resistance to the splachnic venous flow at the portal vein level, with a hyperdynamic systemic circulation characterized by peripheral vasodilation and high cardiac output. Portal flow can be obstructed at prehepatic (¨normal liver¨), intrahepatic (as in cirrhosis), or post-hepatic level (as in Budd-Chiari syndrome). In pediatric patients, prehepatic and intrahepatic causes are almost equally distributed (nearly 50% each). Clinical presentation and individual impact are heterogeneous, but in each case, it is the expression of a worsening condition and the need to solve the problem, either by treating its consequences or (ideally) its causes.

ABSTRACT

RESUMEN Fundamento: los aneurismas de la vena porta son entidades poco frecuentes, representan aproximadamente el 3% de los aneurismas del sistema venoso. La mayoría de los aneurismas de la vena porta se detectan en pacientes con hígado sano, aunque en algunas ocasiones la hipertensión portal podría favorecer el desarrollo de la patología. Los lugares más comunes son la confluencia venosa esplenomesentérica, la vena porta principal y las ramas de la vena porta intrahepática en los sitios de bifurcación. Objetivo: presentar el caso de un paciente portador de una aneurisma de la vena porta. Presentación del Caso: Paciente femenina, blanca de 49 años de edad con antecedentes de trastornos dispépticos, y en ocasiones, dolor a nivel del hipocondrio derecho. Su examen físico era negativo y la impresión diagnóstica de su médico de asistencia era litiasis vesicular. Durante la realización del examen ultrasonográfico se encuentra como dato positivo una dilatación de tipo aneurismático de la vena porta en el inicio de su trayecto intrahepático de 18 mm de diámetro, y el resto del examen resultó negativo. Conclusiones: Por lo inusual de este caso se decide hacer su presentación.


ABSTRACT: portal vein aneurysms are uncommon, representing approximately the 3% of venous system aneurysms. Most portal vein aneurysms are detected in patients with healthy liver, although on some occasions portal hypertension could favor their development. The most common sites are the splenomesenteric venous confluence, the main portal vein and the branches of the intrahepatic portal vein at bifurcation sites. Objective: to present the case of a patient with a portal vein aneurysm. Case Presentation: A 49-years-old white female patient with a history of dyspeptic disorders, and sometimes pain in the right upper quadrant. Her physical examination was negative and the diagnostic impression from her attending physician was gallstones. During the ultrasound examination, an aneurysmal dilatation of the portal vein at the beginning of its intrahepatic path of 18 mm in diameter was found as a positive finding, being the rest of the examination negative Conclusions: Due to the unusual nature of this case, it was decided to present it.

ABSTRACT

La vena porta es un conducto que drena el flujo esplácnico al hígado y se puede ocluir por diferentes patologías, variando su presentación clínica de acuerdo con la causa de la obstrucción. Es muy importante diferenciar la trombosis portal asociada o no a la cirrosis, ya que su tratamiento y pronóstico es diferente. La trombosis venosa portal extrahepática es una condición netamente de origen vascular, y es la principal causa de trombosis portal en niños y adultos. Presentamos tres casos tratados con derivación meso-Rex, con seguimiento a 6 meses


The portal vein is a conduit that drains splanchnic flow to the liver, it can be occluded by different pathologies and its clinical presentation varies according to the cause of the obstruction. It is very important to differentiate portal thrombosis associated or not with cirrhosis, since its treatment and prognosis is different. Extrahepatic portal vein thrombosis (PEVT) is a condition of purely vascular origin, being the main cause of portal thrombosis in children and adults. We present three cases with meso-Rex shunt, with a 6-month follow-up

ABSTRACT

Non-tumoral portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in liver transplantation (LT). In this study, we aimed to evaluate the impact of PVT in LT outcomes and analyze the types of surgical techniques used for dealing with PVT during LT. A systematic review was conducted in Cochrane, MEDLINE, and EMBASE databases, selecting articles from January 1990 to December 2019. The MESH-terms used were ("Portal Vein"[Mesh] AND "Thrombosis"[Mesh] NOT "Neoplasms"[Mesh]) AND ("Liver Transplantation"[Mesh]). The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) recommendation was used, and meta-analysis was performed with Review Manager Version 5.3 software. A total of 1,638 articles were initially found: 488 in PubMed, 289 in Cochrane Library, and 861 in EMBASE, from which 27 were eventually selected for the meta-analysis. Surgery time of LT in patients with PVT was longer than in patients without LT (p<0.0001). Intraoperative red blood cell (p<0.00001), fresh frozen plasma (p=0.01), and platelets (p=0.03) transfusions during LT were higher in patients with PVT. One-year (odds ratio [OR] 1.17; p=0.002) and 5-year (OR 1.12; p=0.01) patient survival after LT was worse in the PVT group. Total occlusive PVT presented higher mortality (OR 3.70; p=0.00009) and rethrombosis rates (OR 3.47 [1.18-10.21]; p=0.02). PVT Yerdel III/IV classification exhibited worse 1-year [2.04 (1.21-3.42); p=0.007] and 5-year [0.98 (0.59-1.62); p=0.93] patient survival. Thrombectomy with primary anastomosis was associated with better outcomes. LT in patients with non-tumoral PVT demands more surgical time, needs more intraoperative transfusion, and presents worse 1- and 5-year patient survival. Total occlusive PVT and Yerdel III/IV PVT classification were associated with higher mortality. (PROSPERO, registration number: CRD42020132915).

ABSTRACT

Resumen La hipertensión portal se define como la alteración patológica en el gradiente de presión a nivel del sistema portal, es decir, la diferencia entre la presión de la vena porta y la vena cava inferior. El valor normal es entre 1-5 mm Hg y se considera hipertensión cuando es mayor de 10 mm Hg. En este artículo, se describe el caso de una paciente de 5 años con un cuadro de hipertensión portal secundario a várices esofágicas y trombosis de la vena porta, confirmado por endoscopia de vías digestivas alta y angioresonancia magnética. La paciente fue atendida en la Fundación Clínica Infantil Club Noel de la ciudad de Cali, Colombia, entre los meses de diciembre del 2018 y febrero del 2019.


Abstract Portal hypertension is defined as the pathological increase in the portal pressure gradient, which is the difference between the pressure of the portal vein and the inferior vena cava. Normally portal vein pressure ranges between 1-5 mmHg and is considered hypertension when it is higher than 10 mmHg. In this study the case of a 5-year-old patient that suffers from secondary portal hypertension to portal venous thrombosis and esophageal varices is presented. The diagnostic is confirmed by an endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract and by a magnetic angioresonance. The patient was treated at the Fundacion Clinica Infantil Club Noel located in Cali, Colombia, between the months of December 2018 and February 2019.

ABSTRACT

Las malformaciones del sistema venoso abdominal son alteraciones vasculares raras. La incidencia de esta afección se estima en uno de cada 30,000 nacimientos y se asocian con malformaciones gas- trointestinal, genitourinaria, ósea y cardiovascular. En el 2018 se ha registrado en la literatura mundial 39 casos de Abernethy tipo I y 22 casos de Abernethy tipo II. CASO CLÍNICO paciente femenino de 12 años con antecedente de hipertensión portal tratada hace 2 años, con historia de malestar general e ic- tericia, acudió a centro privado para realizarse estudios complementarios. Un ultrasonido Doppler por- tal evidenció una lesión isoecogénica al parénquima hepático en el aspecto inferior del lóbulo derecho. Se continuó la evaluación realizando una tomografía en la cual se observó: configuración anómala del sistema venoso portal; la vena esplénica y mesentérica superior se encuentran dilatadas, además se evidenció confluencia portoesplénica elongada, en la cual derivan dos trayectos portales, uno de ellos drenando la lobulación hepática antes descrita y la segundo se comunica con el sistema venoso portal hepático derecho, demostrando tortuosidad de su trayecto, con estenosis de su porción proximal. Los hallazgos antes descritos sugieren malformación vascular del sistema venoso portal-esplácnico, que causa derivación porto-sistémica en relación a malformación de Abernethy tipo II. En conclusión se recomienda el diagnóstico precoz. El examen preferente es el ecodoppler con posterior confirmación mediante angiotac abdominal. El tratamiento es sumamente importante pues su retraso puede devenir en lesiones irreparables hasta la insuficiencia hepática y muerte...(AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumen: La ligadura de una rama de la vena porta constituye un procedimiento con buenos resultados para evitar la falla hepática posoperatoria en caso de hepatectomías extremas al provocar la hipertrofia del hígado contralateral. Sin embargo, la repermeabilización de ésta ha sido demostrada por la presencia de anastomosis porto portales intrahepáticas, pudiendo determinar una disminución de la hipertrofia esperada o necesaria. Como objetivo documentamos un caso clínico de repermeabilización intrahepática de la vena porta, evento no deseado de la hepatectomía en dos tiempos para el tratamiento de metástasis hepáticas bilobares de origen colorrectal y describimos alternativas para evitar o tratar dicha repermeabilización.


Summary: Left or right portal vein ligation to prevent post-operative liver failure in the case of extreme hepatectomy constitutes a procedure with a good prognosis, as it causes contralateral liver hypertrophy. However, its revascularization has been proved by intrahepatic porto-portal anastomoses, which could result in a reduction of the expected or required hypertrophy. The study aims to record a clinical case of intrahepatic revascularization of the portal vein, an unwanted event of the two-stage hepatectomy to treat bilobar hepatic metastasis of colorectal origin, and describe alternatives to avoid or treat such revascularization.


Resumo: A ligadura de um ramo da veia porta é um procedimento com bons resultados para evitar a insuficiência hepática pós-operatória em hepatectomias extremas por causar hipertrofia do fígado contralateral. No entanto, sua repermeabilização tem sido demonstrada pela presença de anastomose porto-portal intra-hepática, que pode determinar diminuição da hipertrofia esperada ou necessária. Como objetivo, documentamos um caso clínico de repermeabilização da veia porta intra-hepática, um evento indesejado de hepatectomia em dois estágios para o tratamento de metástases hepáticas bilobares de origem colorretal, e descrevemos alternativas para evitar ou tratar essa repermeabilização.

ABSTRACT

Resumen Una de las consecuencias más graves de la trombosis de la vena porta extrahepática es la hipertensión portal con sangrado variceal recurrente. Una vez falla la ligadura endoscópica de las várices y el eje esplenoportal no se encuentra permeable, la devascularización tipo Sugiura modificado puede ser la única alternativa. Se ha documentado su uso en pacientes con cirrosis, pero hay poca información en personas no cirróticas. En este artículo se describe una serie de 4 casos de pacientes no cirróticos, en los cuales se realizó dicho procedimiento. Los pacientes fueron seguidos durante 12 meses y ninguno presentó episodios de resangrado de las várices esofágicas, ni tampoco se requirió la ligadura de las várices residuales. Esta cirugía se perfila como una alternativa terapéutica para este tipo de pacientes.


Abstract One of the most serious consequences of extrahepatic portal vein thrombosis is portal hypertension with recurrent variceal bleeding. Once endoscopic variceal ligation fails and the spleno-portal axis is not permeable, modified Sugiura devascularization may be the only alternative. Its use in patients with cirrhosis has been reported, but there is little information on non-cirrhotic patients. This article presents a series of four cases of non-cirrhotic patients that underwent this procedure. Patients were followed for twelve months; none presented episodes of esophageal varices re-bleeding nor required ligation of residual varices. This surgery is outlined as a therapeutic alternative for this type of patients.

ABSTRACT

This study aims at understanding the vascularization of the human liver to determine the correct way to divide it into "divisions" (sectors) and segments, for which we dissected 250 livers using the acrylic resin injection method. The results showed the role of the "Porta hepatis" in the hepatic vascular distribution, the existence of seven vascular pedicles for seven portal segments, and the role of portal fissures in the parenchymal division of the liver. Our research provides the definition of a portal segment and demonstrates the role of the hepatic portal vein in originating any liver parenchymal division.


Quisimos estudiar la vascularización del hígado humano para determinar la forma correcta de dividirlo en "divisiones" y segmentos, para lo cual disecamos 250 hígados usando técnicas de inyección acrílica. Los resultados mostraron la función de la Porta hepatis en la distribución vascular del hígado, la existencia de siete pedículos vasculares para siete segmentos portales, y el rol de las fisuras portales en la división parenquimal del hígado. Ofrecemos la definición de lo que es un segmento portal y demostramos el rol de la vena porta hepática en originar cualquier división parenquimal del hígado.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Background: Hepatectomies promote considerable amount of blood loss and the need to administrate blood products, which are directly linked to higher morbimortality rates. The blood-conserving hepatectomy (BCH) is a modification of the selective vascular occlusion technique. It could be a surgical maneuver in order to avoid or to reduce the blood products utilization in the perioperative period. Aim: To evaluate in rats the BCH effects on the hematocrit (HT) variation, hemoglobin serum concentration (HB), and on liver regeneration. Methods: Twelve Wistar rats were divided into two groups: control (n=6) and intervention (n=6). The ones in the control group had their livers partially removed according to the Higgins and Anderson technique, while the rats in the treatment group were submitted to BCH technique. HT and HB levels were measured at day D0, D1 and D7. The rate between the liver and rat weights was calculated in D0 and D7. Liver regeneration was quantitatively and qualitatively evaluated. Results: The HT and HB levels were lower in the control group as of D1 onwards, reaching an 18% gap at D7 (p=0.01 and p=0.008, respectively); BCH resulted in the preservation of HT and HB levels to the intervention group rats. BCH did not alter liver regeneration in rats. Conclusion: The BCH led to beneficial effects over the postoperative HT and serum HB levels with no setbacks to liver regeneration. These data are the necessary proof of evidence for translational research into the surgical practice.


RESUMO Racional: As hepatectomias compreendem considerável perda sanguínea e utilização de hemoderivados, o que diretamente estão relacionados com maior morbimortalidade. A hepatectomia hemoconservadora (HH) é modificação da técnica de oclusão vascular seletiva em hepatectomia. Ela pode ser alternativa cirúrgica para evitar ou diminuir o uso de hemoderivados no perioperatório. Objetivo: Avaliar os efeitos da HH sobre o volume globular (VG), concentração de hemoglobina (HB) e sobre a regeneração hepática em ratos. Métodos: Dois grupos de ratos Wistar foram constituídos: controle (n=6) e intervenção (n=6). Os do grupo controle foram submetidos à hepatectomia parcial de Higgins e Anderson e os do grupo Intervenção à HH. VG e HB foram medidos nos dias D0, D1 e D7. A relação peso do fígado/peso do rato foi calculada em D0 e D7. A regeneração hepática foi analisada qualitativamente e quantitativamente. Resultados: Houve diminuição dos níveis de VG e HB nos ratos do grupo controle a partir de D1, atingindo decréscimo de 18% em D7 (p=0,01 e p=0,008 respectivamente); a HH permitiu a manutenção dos níveis de VG e HB nos ratos do grupo intervenção. A HH não alterou a regeneração hepática. Conclusão: HH resultou em níveis maiores de VG e HB pós-operatórios sem alterar a regeneração hepática. Pode-se considerar estes dados como a prova necessária para a translação à pesquisa clinicocirúrgica.

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT Varicose gastrointestinal bleeding is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic liver disease. Endoscopic treatment is the first therapeutic line for these patients, however, for those whom this therapeutic modality fail, a broad knowledge of alternative treatment options may improve the prognosis. We describe a case of a patient who were successfully embolized from gastroesophageal varices via transsplenic access.


RESUMO O sangramento gastrointestinal varicoso está entre as maiores causas de morbimortalidade nos paciente com doença hepática crônica. O tratamento endoscópico é a primeira linha terapêutica neste pacientes, porém naqueles que apresentam falha nesta modalidade terapêutica, o amplo conhecimento de opções alternativas de tratamento pode melhorar o prognóstico. Descrevemos um caso de paciente submetido à embolização com sucesso de varizes gastresofágicas por acesso transesplênico.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The International Study Group on Pancreatic Fistula's definition of postoperative pancreatic fistula (POPF) has recently been updated. This study aimed to identify risk factors for POPF in patients having pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) and to generate a nomogram to predict POPF.METHODS: Data on 298 patients who underwent PD from March 2012 to October 2017 was retrospectively reviewed and POPF statuses were redefined. A nomogram was constructed using data from 220 patients and validated using the remaining 78 patients. Independent risk factors for POPF were identified using univariate and multivariate analyses. A predictive nomogram was established based on the independent risk factors and was compared with existing models.RESULTS: Texture of the pancreas, size of the main pancreatic duct, portal vein invasion, and definitive pathology were the identified risk factors. The nomogram had a C-index of 0.793 and was internally validated. The nomogram performed better (C-index of 0.816) than the other most cited models (C-indexes of 0.728 and 0.735) in the validation cohort. In addition, the nomogram can assign patients into low- (less than 10%), intermediate- (10% to 30%), and high-risk (equal or higher than 30%) groups to facilitate personalized management.CONCLUSION: The nomogram accurately predicted POPF in patients having PD.

ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: Major liver resection and radical lymph node dissection has been accepted as a definite treatment of choice for hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HC). However, the perioperative and survival outcomes of right hemihepatectomy (RH) and left hemihepatectomy (LH) still remain controversial. Thus, this study aimed to compare the surgical and oncological outcomes of RH and LH in HC patients.METHODS: From January 2000 to January 2018, a total of 326 patients underwent surgical resection for HC at Yonsei University College of Medicine in Seoul, Korea. Among the 326 patients, we excluded 130 patients and selected 196 patients, who underwent hemihepatectomy with caudate lobectomy. Among these 196 patients, 114 patients underwent RH, and 82 patients underwent LH. We compared the clinicopathological features as well as the surgical and oncologic outcomes of the RH and LH groups.RESULTS: There were no significant differences in disease-free survival (P = 0.473) or overall survival (P = 0.946) in the RH and LH groups. The LH group had fewer complications compared with the RH group, including postoperative ascites (RH: 15 [13.2%] vs. LH: 3 [3.7%], P = 0.023); however, the LH group had more bile leakage complications (RH: 5 [4.4%] vs. LH: 12 [14.6%], P = 0.012). The average time lag from portal vein embolization to operation was 25.80 ± 12.06 days (n = 45). There was no difference in postoperative liver failure (P = 0.402), although there were significantly more frequent ascites after RH (P = 0.023).CONCLUSION: LH might be a good alternative option for the surgical treatment of HC given appropriate tumor location and biliary anatomy indications.

ABSTRACT

Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) can speed up the regeneration of future liver remnant (FLR) in short period of time, and offer a chance for surgical resection for patients without sufficient FLR. However, ALPPS still remains controversy due to its high perioperative morbidity and mortality, as well as the uncertain long-term oncological benefits. How to solve these problems is the key to ensure the safety of surgery.This article focus on the indication selection, liver function reserve evaluation and timing to perform the second stage surgery, surgical mode evolution and comparison with portal venous embolization/portal venous ligation+two-stage hepatectomy.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the application of 3D visualization and 3D printing in individualized precision surgical treatment of Bismuth-Corlette type Ⅲ and Ⅳ hilar cholangiocarcinoma.@*METHODS@#We retrospectively analyzed the data of 10 patients with hilar cholangiocarcinoma undergoing surgeries under the guidance of 3D visualization and 3D printing in the Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, Zhujiang Hospital from May 2016 to March 2019. Thin-section CT data of the patients were collected for 3D reconstruction and 3D printing, and the 3D printed models were used for observing the 3D relationship of tumor with the intrahepatic bile duct, hepatic artery, portal vein and hepatic vein system and for performing preoperative simulated surgery and surgical planning. The 3D printed models were subsequently used for real-time intraoperative navigation to guide surgeries in the operating room.@*RESULTS@#3D visualization models were successfully reconstructed for all the 10 patients and printed into 3D models. The 3D visualization types in Bismuth-Corlette classification included type Ⅲa (4 cases), type Ⅲb (4 cases), and type Ⅳ (2 cases); 4 patients showed portal vein variation, 3 had hepatic artery variation, and 2 had both portal vein and hepatic artery variations. Two patients were found to have trifurcation type of portal vein variation, one had "I-shaped" variation, and one showed the absence of the right anterior branch of the portal vein; 3 patients had hepatic artery variations with the left hepatic artery originating from the left gastric artery (1 case) and the right hepatic artery originating from the superior mesenteric artery (2 cases). Four patients with type Ⅲb underwent left hepatectomy; 4 with type Ⅲa received right hepatectomy; 1 patient with of type Ⅳ received peripheral hepatic resection and another underwent left hepatectomy. The results of preoperative 3D reconstruction, 3D printed model and preoperative planning were consistent with the intraoperative findings. The operative time was 452±75.12 min with a mean intraoperative blood loss of 356±62.35 mL and a mean hospital stay of 15 ± 4.61 days in these cases. One patient had bile leakage and 3 patients had pleural effusion postoperatively, and they were discharged after drainage and medications. No liver failure or death occurred in these cases perioperatively.@*CONCLUSIONS@#3D visualization and 3D printing can facilitate accurate preoperative assessment, surgical planning and surgical procedure optimization for Bismuth-Corlette type Ⅲ and Ⅳ hilar cholangiocarcinoma to improve surgical safety and reduce surgical risks especially in cases of intrahepatic vascular variations.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To assess the clinical application of preoperative retrograde portal venography for children with cavernous transformation of the portal vein (CTPV).@*METHODS@#The clinical data of 8 cases of CTPV admitted in the Children's Hospital of Zhejiang University from January 2018 to September 2019 were retrospectively analyzed. Preoperative retrograde portography was performed to determine the corresponding vascular morphology and size of portal vein system. If the retrograde portography showed that the left branch of the shadow portal vein was unobstructed and its diameter was greater than 3 mm, Rex shunt would be performed after anatomic exploration of Rex recess; if retrograde portography showed that the diameter of left portal vein was less than 3 mm, but the diameter of left renal vein dissected during shunt operation was greater than 5 mm, Warren operation was selected. The patients were followed up for 1, 3 and 6 months after discharge, and then were followed up every 6 months.@*RESULTS@#Retrograde portal venography was successfully performed in 8 child patients.The anatomical position and size of main portal vein and its left and right branches, left renal vein and other important vessels were determined. Among them, there was the well-developed left and right branches of portal vein in 4 child patients, in which the left and right branches of portal vein converged together, but did not communicate with the main portal vein. In addition, the left branch diameter of the portal vein was greater than 3 mm, and the anatomical exploration results during shunt were consistent with it, so Rex shunt was performed. In the other 4 cases, the left branch diameter of the portal vein was small (less than 3 mm) in 3 cases, and the right branch was not clearly developed. Moreover, the left branch of the portal vein was poorly developed and almost occluded in 1 case. However, the left renal vein in these 4 child patients was well developed, the blood flow was unobstructed and the diameter was greater than 5 mm, so Warren operation was performed. Seven patients recovered well after the operation, and the other one had digestive tract rudimentary one year after operation, and the condition was stable after conservative treatment.@*CONCLUSIONS@#The preoperative retrograde portal venography can be used to evaluate the portal vein system in children with CTPV, which provides important clinical basis for making appropriate treatment plan before surgery.

ABSTRACT

Portal hypertension (PHT) is a common complication of liver cirrhosis, which could be measured by the means of portal vein pressure (PVP). However, there is no report about an effective and reliable way to achieve noninvasive assessment of PVP so far. In this study, firstly, we collected ultrasound images and echo signals of different ultrasound contrast agent (UCA) concentrations and different pressure ranges in a low-pressure environment based on an

ABSTRACT

Abstract Purpose: To evaluate liver regeneration after selective ligation of portal vein and hepatic artery by 3D Computed Tomography in an experimental model. Methods: Sixteen Wistar rats were randomized into four equal groups: Group I- control (sham), Group II- isolated selective ligation of the hepatic artery, Group III- isolated selective ligation of the portal vein and Group IV- combined ligation of portal vein and hepatic artery. Before procedure and five days after a 3D CT Scan was performed to analyze the hypertrophy, weight and function of the remnant liver. Results: The largest regeneration rate and increase of weight in the hypertrophied lobe was detected in group IV, the first with an average of 3.99 (p=0.006) and the last varying from 6.10g to 9.64g (p=0.01). However, total liver weight and the R1 ratio (Hypertrophied Lobe Weight/Total Liver Weight) was higher in group III (P<0.001) when compared with groups I, II and IV and showed no difference between them. The immunohistochemical examination with PCNA also found higher percentages with statistical significance differences in rats of groups III and IV. It was possible to confirm a strong correlation between hypertrophied lobe weight and its imaging volumetric study. Liver function tests only showed a significant difference in serum gamma-glutamyltransferase and phosphorous. Conclusion: There is a largest liver regeneration after combined ligation of portal vein and hepatic artery and this evidence may improve the knowledge of surgical treatment of liver injuries, with a translational impact in anima nobile.
