Feasibility of Critical Flicker Frequency Procedure for the Diagnosis of Minimal Encephalopathy

2014-08-27 03:15:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

All patients eligible for TIPS (Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt) procedure will be considered for inclusion. After written inform consent, psychometric tests in order to calculate the psychometric hepatic encephalopathy (PHES) score, the gold standard for the diagnosis of minimal encephalopathy and critical flicker frequency (CFF) will be performed before the TIPS procedure. After TIPS, patients will be followed during one year and the psychometric test and CFF will be performed every 3 months.

30 patients will be included.

The main endpoint is the success rate of CFF. The secondary end points are

- Correlation between CFF and PHES score

- Performance of CFF and PHES score to predict the occurrence of overt encephalopathy after TIPS procedure

- A sample collection during TIPS procedure is also performed for validation of biomarkers

Non-ionizing electromagnetic energy in the frequency range of 100 gigahertz to 10 terahertz which spans from the mid-INFRARED RAYS frequency to the high-frequency edge of the MICROWAVES band.

Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).

FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to obstruction of BILE flow (CHOLESTASIS) in the intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC; BILE DUCTS, EXTRAHEPATIC). Primary biliary cirrhosis involves the destruction of small intra-hepatic bile ducts and bile secretion. Secondary biliary cirrhosis is produced by prolonged obstruction of large intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts from a variety of causes.
