The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of liver function factors in predicting a postoperative large amount of ascites (LA) and posthepatectomy liver failure (PHLF).
Auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation (APOLT) was initially explored for potentially reversible acute liver failure and noncirrhotic metabolic liver disease (NCMLD)(1, 2). The rationale f...
There is a well-known risk of the emergence of hepatic failure in living donor transplant cases on whom are performed a right donor hepatectomy (RDH). There are different prevalence ratios in literatu...
Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis(NASH) is one of the top three indications for liver transplantation in western countries. It is unknown whether renal dysfunction at the time of liver transplantation has ...
"Hard cases make bad law." The legal maxim comes to mind as we read the interesting review by Shekhtman et al. on simultaneous dual-kidney liver transplantation (DLKT) in the United States. The first...
The aim of this study is to validate and develop a new diagnostic and prognostic approach for assessment of liver function in children and adolescents with acute liver failure and chronic ...
This study will examine liver tissue to investigate the role of viral infections in fulminant hepatitis, liver failure, and profound bone marrow failure. All patients who are undergoing l...
The purpose of this study is to gain knowledge about the result of infusing liver cells, carefully matched to blood type, into a subject's body. The hope is that this procedure will aid fu...
In liver surgery peroperative assessment och the future liver remnant (FLR) is pivotal in order to avoid posthepatectomy liver failure. To date this is mainly performed by measuring the vo...
Fifty patients awaiting liver transplantation and 50 age and gender matched control subjects with normal liver function will be included in the study. The aim of this project is to compare...
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.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
Conditions in which the LIVER functions fall below the normal ranges. Severe hepatic insufficiency may cause LIVER FAILURE or DEATH. Treatment may include LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
A form of rapid-onset LIVER FAILURE, also known as fulminant hepatic failure, caused by severe liver injury or massive loss of HEPATOCYTES. It is characterized by sudden development of liver dysfunction and JAUNDICE. Acute liver failure may progress to exhibit cerebral dysfunction even HEPATIC COMA depending on the etiology that includes hepatic ISCHEMIA, drug toxicity, malignant infiltration, and viral hepatitis such as post-transfusion HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS C.
A spectrum of clinical liver diseases ranging from mild biochemical abnormalities to ACUTE LIVER FAILURE, caused by drugs, drug metabolites, and chemicals from the environment.
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...
