Key Words Portal hypertension; Liver stiffness; Hagen-Poiseuille’s law
Core Tip Unlike the elastic normal liver, hepatic sinusoidal vessels become progressively more rigid with advancing cirrhosis and thus subject to Hagen-Poiseuille’s law. Thereafter, pressure gradient is inversely proportional to the fourth power of vessel radius, r4. Surgical resection reduces liver volume and thus net diameter of sinusoids, without reducing hepatic blood inflow. The net reduction in r, at the same flow rates increases pressure gradient by a factor r4 and likely accounts for the poor outcomes in patients with cirrhosis and established portal hypertension. Reducing hepatic venous pressure gradient reduction as part of the management of cirrhosis may reduce the risk of decompensation.
