Liver biopsies are commonly performed in heart transplant candidates to confirm congestive hepatopathy (CH) and to assess the degree of fibrosis. Heterogeneity of fibrosis is frequent in CH, making it...
We analyzed markers of fibrosis in serum samples from patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), assessed by liver biopsy. We used serum levels of markers to develop an algorithm to discr...
To assess the impact of HIV-coinfection on the risk of developing liver related complications in HCV-infected patients with advanced fibrosis treated with direct-acting antivirals (DAA) after sustaine...
End-stage liver fibrosis frequently progresses to portal vein thrombosis, formation of oesophageal varices, hepatic encephalopathy, ascites, hepatocellular carcinoma and liver failure. Mesenchymal ste...
Advanced fibrosis associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has been reported to have a higher risk of hepatic and non-hepatic mortality. We aim to study the recent trends in the preval...
Indications for splenectomy during whole liver transplantation remain controversial and splenectomy is often avoided because of common complications. The objective is to evaluate specific ...
Prospective screening study at Odense University Hospital to assess the effect of transient elastography and other serum and imaging markers of liver fibrosis to detect advanced fibrosis (...
The purpose of this research study is to test the safety and effectiveness of Interferon gamma-1b (IFN-g 1b) injected subcutaneously (under the skin) for the treatment of advanced liver fi...
Chronic liver disease/fibrosis can be the result of various causes, and the result is that the liver tissue becomes stiff. ShearWave™ elastography, available on the Aixplorer® ultrasoun...
Studies has shown an increasingly infection rate after splenectomy, and there is a potential correlation between microbiota and immune system. investigators suppose that increasingly infec...
Condition characterized by splenomegaly, some reduction in the number of circulating blood cells in the presence of a normal or hyperactive bone marrow, and the potential for reversal by splenectomy.
Blood tests that are used to evaluate how well a patient's liver is working and also to help diagnose liver conditions.
Procedures to reverse the effect of REPRODUCTIVE STERILIZATION and to regain fertility. Reversal procedures include those used to restore the flow in the FALLOPIAN TUBE or the VAS DEFERENS.
FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to chronic excess ALCOHOL DRINKING.
Complete or partial change from one sex to another with regard to gonadal development. Gonadal sex reversal may occur naturally or be induced by factors such as steroids, temperature, and autosomal abnormalities during the critical period of gonadal differentiation (SEX DIFFERENTIATION) in some species.
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...
