Traditionally, deceased donor liver grafts receive dual perfusion through the portal vein and the hepatic artery(HA) either in-situ or on the back-table. Hepatic artery perfusion is avoided in live do...
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...
Hepatic venous outflow obstruction (HVOO) is a rare but serious complication after liver transplantation, particularly pediatric living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). The reported incidence is up...
In adult right lobe living donor liver transplantation, the decision to include the middle hepatic vein (MHV) remains controversial.
Peripheral hyperinsulinemia resulting from subcutaneous insulin injection is associated with metabolic defects which include abnormal glucose metabolism. The first aim of this study was to quantify th...
The success of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in treatment of liver malignancy and endstage liver disease has led to an increase in the gap between patients on waiting-lists and av...
Changes in trans-hepatic flow after major and extended hepatectomy (EH) can lead to small for size and flow syndrome (SFSF), which is associated with a significantly higher rate of morbidi...
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...
This 1-year project is intended to study the hemodynamic changes of poratal and hepatic artery during living related liver transplantation. We hypothesize that after right hepatectomy for ...
Modified Right Lobe Graft(MRLG) is one of the most common used graft in liver transplantation .Anterior sector of allograft in MRLG usually congested to decrease this congestion tributarie...
Anastomosis of splenic vein to renal vein to relieve portal hypertension.
A vessel that directly interconnects an artery and a vein, and that acts as a shunt to bypass the capillary bed. Not to be confused with surgical anastomosis, nor with arteriovenous fistula.
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.
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.
Liver disease caused by infections with parasitic tapeworms of the genus ECHINOCOCCUS, such as Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis. Ingested Echinococcus ova burrow into the intestinal mucosa. The larval migration to the liver via the PORTAL VEIN leads to watery vesicles (HYDATID CYST).
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...
