Research subject

The aim of the project is to develop novel methods for temporary isolation of blood flow to the liver in severe, life-threatening bleeding from the inferior vena cava and retrohepatic veins, thereby gaining time to repair the traumatic injuries. Furthermore, to find the optimal combination of endovascular and / or open vascular occlusion from a circulatory, metabolic, inflammatory and organ damage perspective. The research is carried out in animal experimental models and includes physiological, metabolic and inflammatory measurement methods.
