Histological results. A. In the control group, the normal liver parenchyme occurred showed regular morphology of both hepatocytes and sinusoids around the central vein (CV). B. In the I/R group, hepatocytes (*) were prominently swollen with marked vacuolization. Congestion was noticed in enlarged sinusoids. The liver parenchyme took place displayed irregular morphology of both hepatocytes and sinusoids around the central vein. C. In the I/R + LSTS group, hepatocytes and sinusoids represented normal morphology reflecting a well preserved liver parenchyma (400X).
