Abstract

An angiographic pathophysiologic correlation of hepatic arterial changes in cirrhosis is presented. The angiographic findings include: increased hepatic arterial blood flow and size of the hepatic artery, reflux on superior mesenteric artery injection into pancreaticoduodenal, gastroduodenal and hepatic and splenic arteries, hepatic parenchymal blush in advanced cirrhosis, and increased tortuosity of hepatic arterial branches. The functional and organic changes accounting for these angiographic findings in cirrhosis are discussed.
