Complications of cirrhosis : evaluation and management by Andrew P Keaveny( )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents a concise yet comprehensive overview on all facets concerning the complications of cirrhosis. Structured in three sections, the book reviews the natural history of cirrhosis, the diagnostic and predictive tools available to assess the disease, complications, and treatment options such as liver assist devices and transplantation. Topical concerns in the management of patients with cirrhosis are also addressed, including issues pertaining to the delivery of quality care in this patient population. Written by experts in their fields, Complications of Cirrhosis: Evaluation and Management serves as a valuable resource for practitioners and physicians-in-training on the subject of cirrhosis
Interventional procedures in hepatobiliary diseases( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of hepatobiliary diseases has advanced enormously in the past 3 decades. The incorporation of new diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in clinical hepatology as well as liver transplantation has exponentially grown and specialty fields have emerged within the liver disease arena. Interventional procedures play a critical role in the management of patients with hepatobiliary diseases as they offer diagnostic and definite treatment options for an array of conditions. Interventions include those that directly measure portal pressure, perform transjugular liver biopsy and place trans

Prognostic value and treatment of hyponatremia in patients with advanced cirrhosis and acute on chronic liver failure by Andrés Cárdenas( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patients with cirrhosis may develop significant complications of renal function manifested initially by increased sodium retention followed by impaired solute-free water excretion, and finally with renal vasoconstriction. These alterations are responsible for fluid accumulation in the form of ascites, hyponatremia and hepatorenal syndrome respectively. Patients with cirrhosis and hyponatremia have high levels of vasopressin. Patients with cirrhosis that develop acute complications such as ascites, hepatic encephalopathy, hyponatremia, gastrointestinal bleeding, and/or bacterial infections can be classified into those with mere decompensated cirrhosis and those in whom an acute event ifs followed with progressive liver and/or extrahepatic organ failure(s). These latter patients have a poor prognosis and have been defined as having acute on chronic liver failure (ACLF) ACLF defines a subgroup of cirrhotic patients who develop organ failure(s) following hospital admission with or without an identifiable precipitating event. Therapy for cirrhotic patients with hyponatremia with an antagonist of vasopressin (Tolvaptan) and the relationship of hyponatremia and ACLF remain unknown. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of tolvaptan in raising serum sodium levels in patients with cirrhosis and ascites and determine the specific effects hyponatremia on the outcome of patients with ACLF. Patients with cirrhosis and hyponatremia that received tolvaptan for 1 month effectively increased serum sodium concentration in hyponatremic patients with cirrhosis. Compared to placebo tolvaptan also caused a significant increase in urine output and fluid intake and a negative fluid balance during first day after the initial dose. There also was a significant improvement in some components of health related quality of life (SF 12 health survey mental component scores) at the end of the study. Serum sodium levels reverted to baseline levels 1 week after stopping tolvaptan. In a sub-analysis of the CANONIC study (a large study that re-defined ACLF in several European centers) patients with cirrhosis ACLF was more common in patients with hyponatremia (36%) compared to those without it (20%). On the other hand, the prevalence of hyponatremia in patients with ACLF was double than that in patients without ACLF (24% vs 12%, respectively). The most important finding of this analysis was the demonstration that hyponatremia influences the outcome of patients with ACLF. Moreover, both hyponatremia and ACLF independently affect this outcome. This means that hyponatremia in patients without ACLF significantly increases the risk of dying. However, even more interesting is the fact that if patients have both ACLF and hyponatremia (compared to those without either) then the risk of dying is almost 7 times higher. These findings indicate that hyponatremia influences the outcome of patients with ACLF
