Hepatology, cardiac failure,

Andrea Olivia Ciobanu, Leonida Gherasim
Ischemic hepatitis is an important, yet underdiagnosed pathological condition seen in either cardiology or hepatology clinics or intensive care units. The main causes are severe heart failure, circulatory and septic shock. Close monitoring of biological tests (AST, ALT, LDH) together with hemodynamic parameters (blood pressure, cardiac output and central venous pressure) allow for rapid and accurate diagnosis. Correction of hemodynamic parameters, hypoxemia, hepatic and/or renal dysfunction leads to a more favorable outcome of these patients...

PURPOSE: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) affects about 25% of the population worldwide. NAFLD may be viewed as the hepatological manifestation of metabolic syndrome. Patients with metabolic syndrome due to diabetes or obesity have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. This narrative review describes cardiometabolic effects of antidiabetic drugs in NAFLD. METHODS: We conducted a systematic search in PubMed and manually scanned bibliographies in trial databases and reference lists in relevant articles...

There are approximately 1 million adult patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) in the United States, and the number is increasing. Hepatic complications are common and may occur secondary to persistent chronic passive venous congestion or decreased cardiac output resulting from the underlying cardiac disease or as a result of palliative cardiac surgery; transfusion or drug-related hepatitis may also occur. The unique physiology of Fontan circulation is particularly prone to the development of hepatic complications and is, in part, related to the duration of the Fontan procedure...

Patients with congenital cardiac disease require lifelong medical care. Current challenges that face practitioners who care for adults with congenital heart disease include identifying the best location for procedures, which could be a children's hospital, an adult hospital, or a tertiary care facility; providing appropriate antenatal management of pregnant women with congenitally malformed hearts, and continuing this care in the peripartum period; and securing the infrastructure and expertise of the non-cardiac subspecialties, such as nephrology, hepatology, pulmonary medicine, and haematology...

Whether they are the first sign of cancer or aggravate the evolution of a neoplasm already known and treated, renal, hepatic and cardiac failure constitute a vital threat for a patient with cancer and often justifies an admission to intensive care. If the clinical picture can be considered similar in all respects to that of other patients, the neoplasia and its treatments are often responsible for etiological, diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic particularities that merit being known. So it is in nephrology with the glomerulopathies and thrombotic microangiopathy, in hepatology with veno-occlusive disease and graft versus host rejection, in cardiology with aplastic septic shock, anthracycline myocardial toxicity, cardiac tamponade...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the serum-ascites albumin gradient to the exudate-transudate concept in the classification of ascites. DESIGN: Prospective collection of ascitic fluid data from patients with well-characterized causes of ascites. SETTING: Hepatology inpatient and outpatient ward and consult service of a large, urban hospital. PATIENTS: A total of 901 paired serum and ascitic fluid samples were collected from consecutive patients with all forms of ascites...
