Keywords Alcoholic liver cirrhosis; Hepatic tissue blood flow; Liver function; Indocyanine green; Xenon computed tomography
Core Tip Hepatic blood flow (HBF) generally decreases with disease progression in chronic liver disease. Additionally, collateral vessels appear and liver function, such as liver synthesis and disposal capability, declines in liver cirrhosis (LC). Notably, in LC it is known that liver function deteriorates in almost direct proportion to progression of liver disease parameters such as Child-Pugh classification. Thus, in order to assess the state of chronic liver disease it is very important to evaluate HBF. The aim of the present study was to measure liver function and HBF using xenon computed tomography, and to elucidate the correlation between HBF and liver function in alcoholic LC.
