Abstract

Intra- and post-operative oxygenation of graft liver and subsequent oxidation of the intramitochondrial oxido-reduction state of pyridine nucleotide were studied in partial liver transplantation from living related donors with the ratio of acetoacetate to beta-hydroxybutyrate in arterial blood (AKBR), the ratio of oxidized flavoprotein to reduced pyridine nucleotide (FP/PN ratio) and oxygen saturation of hemoglobin in liver tissue (hepatic SO2). Decreased hepatic SO2 and its heterogenous distribution after reflow of portal vein and hepatic artery were normalized by the end of operation, while the intramitochondrial oxido-reduction state was still reduced at the end of operation and was normalized only at 24 h after the operation. The observed delay in oxidation of the intramitochondrial oxido-reduction state as compared with tissue oxygenation indicates the transition of the intramitochondrial oxido-reduction state associated with the initiation of metabolic activity from the cold preserved state, and suggests an important role for microcirculation in the normalization of the oxido-reduction state.
