Summary of "Hepatogenous Diabetes in Cirrhosis Is Related to Portal Pressure and Variceal Hemorrhage."

The clinical impact and complications of hepatogenous diabetes (HD) on cirrhosis have not been elucidated. This study aimed to evaluate the relationship of HD with portal hypertension (PHT) and variceal hemorrhage and to assess the prevalence of HD.

Management of variceal hemorrhage: current concepts.

The treatment of portal hypertension is complex and the the best strategy depends on the underlying disease (cirrhosis vs. schistosomiasis), patient's clinical condition and time on it is performed (d...

Management of portal hypertensive gastropathy and other bleeding.

A major cause of cirrhosis related morbidity and mortality is the development of variceal bleeding, a direct consequence of portal hypertension. Less common causes of gastrointestinal bleeding are pep...

Modified interventional obliteration for variceal hemorrhage from elevated jejunum after pylorus-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy.

Ectopic variceal hemorrhage caused by sinistral portal hypertension after splenic vein ligation during a pyloric-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy is a rare entity. We report the case of a 58-year-old...

Esophageal varices on computed tomography and subsequent variceal hemorrhage.

Endoscopy is recommended to screen for esophageal varices in patients with cirrhosis. The objective of this study was to identify features on abdominal CT imaging associated variceal hemorrhage (VH).

Predictors of variceal or nonvariceal source of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. An etiology predictive score established and validated in a tertiary referral center.

BACKGROUND & AIMS. For upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB), guidelines recommend pharmacological treatment before endoscopy. Therefore, it is important to establish an early diagnosis of the varice...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal increase of resistance to blood flow within the hepatic PORTAL SYSTEM, frequently seen in LIVER CIRRHOSIS and conditions with obstruction of the PORTAL VEIN.

The venous pressure measured in the PORTAL VEIN.

A syndrome characterized by the clinical triad of advanced chronic liver disease, pulmonary vascular dilatations, and reduced arterial oxygenation (HYPOXEMIA) in the absence of intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease. This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).

Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.

A selective and potent serotonin-2 antagonist that is effective in the treatment of a variety of syndromes related to anxiety and depression. The drug also improves the subjective quality of sleep and decreases portal pressure.
