Mitotic indices and hepatitis scores three days after surgery. The dot plots depict distribution of mitotic indices (A) and hepatitis scores (B) determined in stained liver-sections of pigs on the 3rd postoperative day after control laparotomy (LT, n = 6) or partial hepatectomy (PH, n = 5) with and without transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS, n = 6). Each dot represents data for a single animal. Median values are marked by horizontal bars. Histological assessment is not available for one PH animal.
