Figure 3 Examples of reversible pressure-mediated changes of liver stiffness. A: Reversible drastic increase of liver stiffness (LS) after clamping of the caval vein in narcotized landrace pigs (modified from Ref. [25]); B: Decrease of LS after alcohol detoxification in a heavy female drinker unmasks the inflammation-related LS from the fibrosis-related LS. F2 fibrosis was confirmed histologically. Modified from Ref. [29].
