PURPOSE: Limited options are available to treat critically ill patients with acute liver failure (ALF) and acute-on-chronic liver failure (AoCLF), therefore we set up an in vitro study in order to test the bilirubin adsorption capacity of the Lixelle S-35 cartridge by direct hemoperfusion (DHP). METHODS: Mock DHP was performed for 120 min using hyperbilirubinic human plasma and blood obtained from a plasmapheresis and exchange transfusion, respectively. The total bilirubin (TBIL) and direct bilirubin (DBIL) baseline concentrations were 17...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of preoperative biliary drainage on surgical morbidity in hilar cholangiocarcinoma patients underwent surgery. METHODS: One hundred and eleven consecutive patients with hilar cholangiocarcinoma whose serum total bilirubin (TBIL) level > 85 micromol/L and underwent surgery in the period from June 1998 to August 2007 were enrolled. There were 67 male and 44 female patients, aged from 26 to 82 years old with a mean of 56 years old...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Light can be efficiently used for the treatment of neonatal jaundice. Sunlight, which covers a large portion of the light spectrum including the bilirubin-absorbing range, is abundant in the Middle East. Such advantages prompted the present study to investigate the efficiency of sunlight in isomerizing bilirubin. This may introduce a practical source of light for the treatment of hyperbilirubinic infants in areas where phototherapy units are not available. METHODS: The efficiency of sunlight was quantified by a comparison with a phototherapy unit...

Zixoryn, (3-trifluoromethyl-alfa-aethyl-benzhydrole) is a new product of the Hungarian Chemical Works of Gedeon Richter Ltd. It induces the mixed function oxydase enzyme system of the endoplasmic reticulum of the liver and has no other pharmacological effects. We have studied the effect of Zixoryn on early hyperbilirubin-aemia. 42 neonates were studied, 21 of them were randomly assigned to be treated and the others served as control group Zixoryn treatment consisted of drops containing 10 mg Zixoryn per ml in a single 20 mg/kg body weight dose through a gastric tube...
