Abstract: Hepatic perfusion plays a crucial role in liver transplantation strategies, for example, when preserving procured organs with the use of machine perfusion preservation (MP) and in the case of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Liver hemodynamics are not yet fully understood because of insufficient knowledge on the hepatic vascular morphology and its perfusion characteristics, hampering the optimization of liver transplantation procedures. To this end, we developed computer models to simulate the complex blood circulation through the liver from the macro-scale down to the terminal micro-scale level.
