T-tube
collects bile after open abdominal cholecystectomy
Liver
filters blood - produces biles
cirrhosis
chronic degenerative changes in the live cells and thickening of surrounding tissue
that results from the liver repairing itself after chronic inflammation
Liver function tests
CBC, Bilirubin, Bromsulphalein test, Serum enzyme test, AST/ALT, coagulation
studies, Liver biopsy
