Fig. 1

Histopathologic analyses and water content of lung and PaO2 level after orthotopic autologous liver transplantation (OALT). HE-stained lung tissue sections from the sham, OALT + saline, OALT + Hemin and OALT + ZnPP groups at 8 h (a) after reperfusion (×200). Rats, intraperitoneally injected with saline, hemin (30 mg/kg) and ZnPP (20 mg/kg) separately in corresponding groups 24 h before operation, were received celiotomy and vascular separation with or without OALT. Also, lung injury was assessed by Derks and Jacobovitz Derks’ standard (b). Lung water content in lungs (c). Level of PaO2 (d). The results were expressed as the mean ± SD, n = 8 per group. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, one-way ANOVA with Tukey test
