Hypoxia protects the liver from Small For Size syndrome
from American Journal of Transplantation via Wiley Online Library
Portal hyperperfusion and "dearterialization" of the liver remnant are the main pathogenic mechanisms for Small For Size syndrome. ALPPS induces rapid remnant hypertrophy. We hypothesized similar increase in portal pressure/flow into the future liver remnant in ALPPS and SFSS‐setting hepatectomies.
