Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of dimethyl sulfoxide on liver damage caused by ischemia-reperfusion after portal vein clamping. Forty New Zealand rabbits were divided into three groups with the portal veins of all the rabbits except the sham group clamped for 30 minutes: group I, sham procedure; group II, control group; and group III, 500 mg/kg DMSO. The drug was administered IM in the left inguinal region 30 minutes before the operation. Blood samples (5 mL) were taken from the animals at 15, 30, and 45 minutes. At the end of the experiment 1 g of liver tissue samples were obtained. Malondialdhyde (MDA), nitric oxide (NO), AST, ALT, and LDH plasma levels were measured in the blood samples. Liver tissue samples stained with hematoxylin eosin were examined under light microscopy for histopathological changes. The liver enzymes in both clamping groups increased significantly compared with the sham group (P
