Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The liver of smaller dogs was transplanted to the site of the removed spleen of larger dogs. Care was taken to maintain both the arterial and the portal circulation, the latter via the splenic vein with reversed blood flow. Although the method appears to be suitable from the technical point of view, the resulting coagulation disorders are difficult to control in the dog, and this was the main cause of the animals' death.
