Chronic portal vein thrombosis is a frequent finding in patients waiting for liver transplantation. Although it is no longer considered a contraindication for transplantation, it can be a surgical cha...
Resection offers the only chance of long-term survival or cure for perihilar cancer, provided R0 resection is achieved with margin-negative status of the remnant liver, bile duct, proximal hepatic art...
In patients with idiopathic noncirrhotic portal hypertension (INCPH), data on morbi-mortality of abdominal surgery are scarce We retrospectively analyzed the charts of patients with INCPH undergoing a...
We investigated whether chronological changes in portal flow and clinical factors play a role in the liver regeneration (LR) process after right donor-hepatectomy.
The effect of a prior defect on secondary liver atrophy is unknown. We describe a case of sigmoid volvulus that was facilitated by progressive atrophy in a deformed liver. A 75-year-old man with abdom...
The hypothesis is that liver venous deprivation (LVD) could strongly improve hypertrophy of the future remnant liver (FRL) at 3 weeks, as compared to portal vein embolization (PVE) in pati...
The aim of this study is to investigate the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the formation of posthepatectomy ascites with a focus on the significance of changes in portal venous h...
Portal hypertension is a common complication of chronic liver diseases and is responsible for most clinical consequences of cirrhosis. measurement of the hepatic venous pressure gradient(H...
Most patients undergoing hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) suffer from underlying liver disease and are exposed to the risk of postoperative ascites, with subsequent morbidity...
Endothelin is a human hormone which has been associated with increased portal pressure in patients with liver cirrhosis (also called portal hypertension). Ambrisentan blocks the effects of...
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).
Dilated blood vessels in the ESOPHAGUS or GASTRIC FUNDUS that shunt blood from the portal circulation (PORTAL SYSTEM) to the systemic venous circulation. Often they are observed in individuals with 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.
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.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
