Radioembolization (RE) is a relatively novel treatment modality for primary and secondary hepatic malignancies. Microspheres embedded with a β-emitting radioisotope are injected into the hepatic artery, resulting in microsphere deposition in the tumor arterioles and normal portal triads. Microsphere deposition in nontumorous parenchyma can result in radiation-induced liver injury, with lethal RE-induced liver disease (REILD) at the outer end of the spectrum. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate RE-related hepatotoxicity and present an overview of the currently applied definitions and clinically relevant characteristics of REILD...

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a key monomer in the production of plastics. It has been shown to be hepatotoxic. Inflammation and oxidative stress are closely linked with liver fibrosis, the major contributing factor to hepatic failure. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of chronic exposure to BPA on the development of hepatic fibrosis in male rats and to determine the cross-talk between the hepatic cytokine network, oxidative stress and apoptosis. For this purpose, 30 male Wistar albino rats were divided into three equal groups as follows: the first group was given no treatment (normal control group); the second group was given corn oil once daily by oral gavage for 8 weeks (vehicle control group); and the third group received BPA (50 mg/kg body weight/day, p...

Although the clinical benefit of laparoscopic splenectomy and devascularization (LSD) has been elaborated in many studies, its application in massive splenomegaly remains controversial. We conducted a retrospective research to assess the curative efficacy of LSD for massive splenomegaly due to portal hypertension. Forty-seven patients with massive splenomegaly due to portal hypertension were enrolled in this study, and divided into two groups. Twenty-one patients underwent open splenectomy and devascularization (OSD) from June 2010 to October 2012 (OSD group)...

With the goal of providing a comprehensive, high-quality resource for both plant transcription factors (TFs) and their regulatory interactions with target genes, we upgraded plant TF database PlantTFDB to version 4.0 (http://planttfdb.cbi.pku.edu.cn/). In the new version, we identified 320 370 TFs from 165 species, presenting a more comprehensive genomic TF repertoires of green plants. Besides updating the pre-existing abundant functional and evolutionary annotation for identified TFs, we generated three new types of annotation which provide more directly clues to investigate functional mechanisms underlying: (i) a set of high-quality, non-redundant TF binding motifs derived from experiments; (ii) multiple types of regulatory elements identified from high-throughput sequencing data; (iii) regulatory interactions curated from literature and inferred by combining TF binding motifs and regulatory elements...

REVIEW

Normal neuropsychiatric performance in cirrhosis has been traditionally defined by the absence of any degree of hepatic encephalopathy (HE) and/or the absence of psychometric or neurophysiological abnormalities, by comparison with reference data from the healthy population. It is our impression that as our understanding and management of end-stage liver disease continues to change, the concept of normal neuropsychiatric performance may also need updating. This review explores novel and possibly more pragmatic interpretations of neuropsychiatric "normality" by comparison with top personal performance, in terms of risk of overt HE/brain failure and in relation with events such as liver transplantation, decompensation, acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) and Transjugular Intrahepatic Portal-systemic Shunt (TIPS) placement...

BACKGROUND: A liver stiffness (LS) < 21 kPa has a high negative predictive value (NPV) to exclude the presence of esophageal varices (EV) at risk of bleeding in HIV/HCV-coinfected patients. Consequently, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy (UGE) for the screening of EV could be avoided in these patients. However, this strategy has not been widely accepted due to concerns about its safety. OBJECTIVE: To assess the ability of LS to predict the risk of portal hypertensive gastrointestinal bleeding (PHGB) in HIV/HCV-coinfected patients with compensated cirrhosis...

BACKGROUND: Extended Whipple procedures may require division of the splenic vein (SV). Controversy exists regarding the risk of sequelae of sinistral portal hypertension when the SV is ligated without reimplantation. The aim of this study was to identify postoperative venous collateral patterns and sequelae of SV ligation, as well as long-term results in an extended Whipple procedure. STUDY DESIGN: Patients who had an extended Whipple procedure (Whipple at the Splenic Artery or WATSA) were entered in an institutional database...

Gastric variceal bleeding is a major complication of portal hypertension and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. While esophageal varices are more common, gastric varices are often more challenging to treat. Balloon-Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration is an interventional procedure whereby the portosystemic gastrorenal shunt is accessed via the left renal vein and the gastric varix outflow tract obliterated using direct sclerotherapy. Herein, we present a case of a 68-year-old female patient with cirrhosis who presented with bleeding gastric varices and successfully treated...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common type of liver cancer and its treatment options are determined by shape, liver function, loci, and stages of cancer. Diffuse type of infiltrative HCC accompanied by portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT) has the poorest prognosis among other HCCs and there are no other prominent treatment options than systemic chemotherapy. In this study, we report a case of a 56-year-old man with diffuse infiltrative HCC accompanied by PVTT who achieved complete remission for 8 years after receiving conventional transcatheter arterial chemoembolization using adriamycin and gelfoam...

BACKGROUND: Functional imaging such as CT perfusion can detect morphological and hemodynamic changes in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Pre-carcinoma and early HCC nodules are difficult to differentiate by observing only their hemodynamics changes. The present study aimed to investigate hemodynamic parameters and evaluate their differential diagnostic cut-off between pre-carcinoma and early HCC nodules using CT perfusion and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves. METHODS: Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into control (n=20) and experimental (n=70) groups...
