Our results indicated that upon change of posture from the supine to left decubitus position, portal vein flow velocity was reduced and hepatic artery flow velocity increased. Changes in portal and hepatic arterial flows by changing posture may be explained by decreased portal flow as a direct result of changed posture, leading to increased hepatic arterial flow to maintain total hepatic blood inflow.
