Comparison of the Bromsulphalein Method with Simultaneous Direct Hepatic Blood Flow
A method has been devised for directly measuring hepatic outflow in dogs so as to permit simultaneous comparison with the indirect method, employing the hepatic removal of Bromsulphalein (BSP). The results show that the indirect method averages 7.3 per cent higher than the direct. This difference is attributed to a small Degrees of extrahepatic removal of the dye.
