Influence of Portosystemic Shunt on Liver Regeneration after Hepatic Resection in Pigs

Figure 2

Mean number of Ki-67-positive hepatocyte nuclei in 10 liver lobules in the shunt ( ) and in the control group ( ). With 19 cells-/-10 liver lobules versus 4-/-10, the Ki-67-expression approximately 4 hours after resection was significantly higher in the shunt group and remained at a higher level than in the control group. In the control group, the percentage of Ki-67 positive hepatocytes decreased slowly during the first week after resection. .
