BACKGROUND: α1-Antitrypsin deficiency (ATD) is the most common genetic cause of liver injury in young children. Asymptomatic hepatitis is observed in most patients. However, the course of liver disease due to ATD is unpredictable, and some children develop liver cirrhosis. Liver transplantation (Ltx) dramatically improves their outcome and in some cases is required in the first years of life. The aim of the study was to evaluate the course of the disease in children with ATD treated with Ltx in a single center...

OBJECTIVE: Specific inherited disorders may be more common in island communities. Prior case reports suggest that cholestatic liver diseases may constitute a group of these inherited disorders in Puerto Rico. A cross-sectional survey of liver diseases in children was conducted to assess this hypothesis. METHODS: A cross-sectional analysis was performed in patients with chronic cholestasis at "Hospital Pediátrico Universitario" in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Ten potential participants with high gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGTP) cholestasis were identified...

Thrombocytopenia is a common haematological disorder in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD). It is multifactorial and severity of liver disease is the most influential factor. Due to the increased risk of bleeding, thrombocytopenia may impact upon medical procedures, such as surgery or liver biopsy. The pathophysiology of thrombocytopenia in CLD has long been associated with the hypothesis of hypersplenism, where portal hypertension causes pooling and sequestration of all corpuscular elements of the blood, predominantly thrombocytes, in the enlarged and congested spleen...

Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is associated with severe end-organ damage and a high risk of thrombosis. Budd-Chiari syndrome, which develops after thrombotic occlusion of major hepatic blood vessels, is relatively common in PNH and has been associated with increased mortality. We report the case of a 46-year-old male with PNH who presented with Budd-Chiari syndrome associated with portal cavernoma, portal hypertension and hypersplenism. In September 2010, the patient suffered gastrointestinal bleeding, hematuria, and elevated plasma lactate dehydrogenase; he started eculizumab therapy with a good response...

Nowadays, pancreaticoduodenectomies (PD) with an "en-bloc" resection of the spleno-mesenterico-portal (SMP) venous axis are safely performed at tertiary centers for patients presenting venous invasion. However, for tumors infiltrating the SMP confluence optimal management of the splenic vein (SV) remains a matter of debate. Simple SV ligation has been associated with the development of sinistral portal hypertension, gastrointestinal bleeding and hypersplenism over the long term. To avoid these complications, reconstructive methods such as the direct implantation of the SV into a SMP "neoconfluence", the inferior mesenteric vein-SV anastomosis and the distal spleno-renal shunt have been reported...

Both schistosomes and malaria parasites produce hemozoin and cause host anaemia. However, the relationship between anaemia and hemozoin is unclear. Although some studies have proposed that hemozoin is related to anaemia in malaria patients, whether hemozoin alone can cause anaemia in patients infected by malaria parasites or schistosomes is uncertain. To investigate the effect of hemozoin on hosts, β-haematin was injected intravenously to normal mice. Then, liver and spleen tissues were observed. Mouse blood was examined...

BACKGROUNDS: Splenomegaly may contribute to hypersplenism and can result in thrombocytopenia. Many approaches are used to treat splenomegaly; however, the current management of splenomegaly has intrinsic limitations or disadvantages. Now, we initiate a new approach, that of total splenic vessel (artery and vein) ligations (TSVLs) in paediatric patients with splenomegaly. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the results obtained with TVSLs procedure for paediatric patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seventeen paediatric patients with splenomegaly were screened for enrolment into this retrospective analysis...

We present an 82-year-old man with a history of hairy cell leukemia, having an 11-cm abdominal aortic aneurysm, who also had severe thrombocytopenia (about 20 000 platelets/μL) and splenomegaly at presentation. The patient had unfavorable anatomy for endovascular aneurysm repair, and therefore, an open procedure was planned. To reduce risk for perioperative bleeding and optimize patient preoperative status, a staged approach was employed. Initially, several sessions of embolization of 2 splenic artery branches were performed with the intent to decrease spleen size and to increase platelet count thus decreasing the perioperative bleeding risk...

INTRODUCTION: Cytopenia is a common hematologic finding in patients with HCV infection. Only a few studies have addressed bone marrow (BM) morphologic findings in these patients. No systemic study has been performed in these patients with liver transplantation (LT). METHODS: We retrospectively examined BMs in 49 hepatitis C patients with and without prior LT (n = 19 and n = 30). RESULTS: Among the patients with an available complete blood count (n = 46), the majority of them presented with cytopenia involving one or multiple cell lineages including unicytopenia (13%, n = 6), bicytopenia (31%, n = 14), and pancytopenia (43%, n = 20)...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic splenectomy and azygoportal disconnection (LSD) has been reported to be safe, feasible, and minimally invasive for cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension. There is still controversy as to whether it is necessary to perform synchronous splenectomy for patients with moderate hypersplenism who undergo azygoportal disconnection for esophagogastric variceal hemorrhage (EGVB). METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated the outcomes in 51 cirrhotic patients with EGVB and moderate hypersplenism (PLT ≥50 × 10(9)/L) who underwent LSD (n = 28) or laparoscopic azygoportal disconnection (LD) (n = 23) between January 2014 and October 2015...

BACKGROUND: Splenectomy and pericardial devascularization (SPD) is an effective treatment of upper gastrointestinal bleeding and hypersplenism in cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension. Indocyanine green retention at 15 minutes (ICGR15) was reported to offer better sensitivity and specificity than the Child-Pugh classification in hepatectomy, but few reports describe ICGR15 in SPD. The present study was to evaluate the prognostic value of ICGR15 for cirrhotic patients with portal hypertension who underwent SPD...
