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...
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...
Effective immunosuppression through optimization of trough levels tacrolimus reduces post-transplant mortality rate in liver transplant cases.
Liver transplantation (LT), especially auxiliary partial LT (APOLT) is an excellent treatment option for patients with propionic academia (PA). It avoids the demerits and morbidity associated with lon...
Transplant-acquired food allergy is a well known phenomenon especially linked to liver transplants. Risk factors lie both in transplant recipient and transplant donor - age of recipient and the maturi...
This study aims to assess the alteration of portal and splanchnic flow using MRI after liver transplantation in patients with splenomegaly or splenic varix.
Post hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) is a serious medical problem could lead to patient death, however, definite treatment strategy has not been established. The liver is a regenerating o...
Hepatocellular insufficiency is a dreaded complication after hepatectomy, since, if it is persistent, it leads to the death of the patient in the absence of liver transplantation. The pre...
This study evaluates correlation in changes of HVPG-pressure values and stiffness values (ARFI) for spleen and liver and flow-volume values in Portal vein in patients with liver cirrhosis/...
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...
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.
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.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
The study of the deformation and flow of matter, usually liquids or fluids, and of the plastic flow of solids. The concept covers consistency, dilatancy, liquefaction, resistance to flow, shearing, thixotrophy, and VISCOSITY.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image. This type of ultrasonography is well-suited to identifying the location of high-velocity flow (such as in a stenosis) or of mapping the extent of flow in a certain region.
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...
