Summary of "Fatty liver disease is associated with the severity of acute pancreatitis:A systematic review and meta-analysis."

Fatty liver (FL) has been positively associated with the risk of acute pancreatitis (AP), but whether FL is associated with the severity of AP remains unknown. To this, a meta-analysis was conducted to assess the effect of FL on severity and outcomes of AP.

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Aggravated the Severity of Acute Pancreatitis in Patients.

The incidence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) as a metabolic disease is increasing annually. In the present study, we aimed to explore the influence of NAFLD on the severity of acute pancr...

Evaluating the association of serum ferritin and hepatic iron with disease severity in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Hyperferritinemia, with or without increased hepatic iron, represents a common finding in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, it is unclear whether it reflects hepatic inflammation or ...

Association of total cholesterol with severe acute pancreatitis: A U-shaped relationship.

There is no consensus on relationship between total cholesterol levels and incidence of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between total cholesterol...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease presence and severity are associated with aortic stiffness beyond abdominal obesity: The ELSA-Brasil.

It is uncertain whether non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with aortic stiffness in a racial/ethnically diverse and admixed society. We addressed whether NAFLD presence and severi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS. Pancreatitis is classified as acute unless there are computed tomographic or endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatographic findings of CHRONIC PANCREATITIS (International Symposium on Acute Pancreatitis, Atlanta, 1992). The two most common forms of acute pancreatitis are ALCOHOLIC PANCREATITIS and gallstone pancreatitis.

Acute or chronic INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS due to excessive ALCOHOL DRINKING. Alcoholic pancreatitis usually presents as an acute episode but it is a chronic progressive disease in alcoholics.

A severity of disease classification system designed to measure the severity of disease for patients aged 15 and over admitted to intensive care units.

Fatty liver finding without excessive ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION.

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.
