Summary of "Relationship of Liver Stiffness with Congestion in Patients Presenting with Acute Decompensated Heart Failure."

The significance of liver stiffness (LS) in the setting of cardiovascular congestion during the course of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) is under investigation. The aim of this study was to assess LS with transient elastography (TE) and its associations with volume overload by bioimpedance vector analysis (BIVA) in ADHF.

We appreciate the interest and the thoughtful response by Gioia et al. on our recent observations about the liver stiffness measurement in patients with non-cirrhotic portal hypertension (NCPH). The ...

The relationship between serum hepatitis B virus DNA level and liver histology in patients with chronic HBV infection.

There is no consensus regarding the relationship between HBV DNA and liver fibrosis, and the relationship between HBV DNA and the degree of liver cirrhosis has not been reported in patients with chron...

Assessment of 10-year changes in liver stiffness using vibration-controlled transient elastography in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Although a liver biopsy is golden standard for the diagnosis and staging of Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), repeated assessment of patients' liver tissue conditions are impractical. We asses...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss of vascular ELASTICITY due to factors such as AGING; and ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Increased arterial stiffness is one of the RISK FACTORS for many CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.

A heterogeneous group of immunocompetent cells that mediate the cellular immune response by processing and presenting antigens to the T-cells. Traditional antigen-presenting cells include MACROPHAGES; DENDRITIC CELLS; LANGERHANS CELLS; and B-LYMPHOCYTES. FOLLICULAR DENDRITIC CELLS are not traditional antigen-presenting cells, but because they hold antigen on their cell surface in the form of IMMUNE COMPLEXES for B-cell recognition they are considered so by some authors.

A functional relationship between psychological phenomena of such nature that the presence of one tends to evoke the other; also, the process by which such a relationship is established.

A selective triazine herbicide. Inhalation hazard is low and there are no apparent skin manifestations or other toxicity in humans. Acutely poisoned sheep and cattle may show muscular spasms, fasciculations, stiff gait, increased respiratory rates, adrenal degeneration, and congestion of the lungs, liver, and kidneys. (From The Merck Index, 11th ed)

The relationship between the chemical structure of a compound and its biological or pharmacological activity. Compounds are often classed together because they have structural characteristics in common including shape, size, stereochemical arrangement, and distribution of functional groups.
