A technique has been described in which all the venous drainage of the deep femoral system is diverted through the hepatic bed by means of a reverse Eck fistula and systematic division of collaterals from the inferior vena cava and iliac veins. The use of this technique in the study of liver metabolism is proposed. Employment of simple reverse Eck fistula is suggested in clinical situations in which there is subdiaphragmatic destruction of the inferior vena cava. © 1959.
