Abstract

Background: Translocating enteric bacteria play an important role in the development of infections following partial hepatectomy. The intestine itself is the first line of defence against bacterial translocation (BT). We investigated the effect of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) on BT and the intestinal wall.
