Estimation of renal function in patients with liver cirrhosis: Impact of muscle mass and sex.

07:00 EST 7th January 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Estimation of renal function in patients with liver cirrhosis: Impact of muscle mass and sex."

Accurate evaluation of renal function in patients with liver cirrhosis is critical for clinical management. However, discrepancy still exists between the measured GFR (mGFR) and Cr-based estimated GFR (eGFR). In this study, we compared the performance of two common eGFR measurements with mGFR, and evaluated the impact of low muscle mass on overestimation of renal function.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Experimentally induced chronic injuries to the parenchymal cells in the liver to achieve a model for LIVER CIRRHOSIS.

Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.

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).

A tool for the study of liver damage which causes bile stasis and hyperbilirubinemia acutely and bile duct hyperplasia and biliary cirrhosis chronically, with changes in hepatocyte function. It may cause skin and kidney damage.
