Differential sympathetic activation and baroreceptor reflex sensitivity induced by hepatic cirrhosis in rats

      Background/aims: Increase in sympathetic vasomotor activity and cardiovascular dysfunction has been described in patients with chronic liver disease. However, the mechanisms underlying such alterations are not fully understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the control of renal and splancnic sympathetic nerve activity by the arterial baroreceptors in rats with cirrhosis induced by bile duct ligation (BDL).
