Abstract

Background/Aims: It has previously been shown that prolonged ischemia of the liver had a mortal course and a method of intermittent occlusion of the hepatic pedicle was defined in order to minimize the damage to the liver. The present experimental study aimed to compare the effects of continuous and intermittent occlusion of the hepatic pedicle on the liver by measuring serum lactate, serum MDA malondialdehyde and glutathione levels and by evaluating the histologic changes in the liver tissue.
