Background. Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is a major problem during liver surgery. We investigated the effects of lisinopril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, in the early postoperative period of reperfusion injury after Pringle's maneuver during an 80% partial hepatectomy (PH) in rats.
