Abstract

Background. During some surgical interventions, temporary occlusion of the hepatic blood supply may cause ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury. Recent studies suggest that type 3 phosphodiesterase inhibitors may have a beneficial effect on liver IR injury. The aim of this study was to investigate whether amrinone, a type 3 phosphodiesterase inhibitor, could have a protective effect on liver having experimental liver IR injury.
