BACKGROUND: There is a high prevalence of nutritional disorders in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC). This study was designed to assess the relationships between liver function, IFG-I/IGFBP-3, nutritional status, leptin, ghrelin and glucagon in 21 patients waiting for liver transplantation (LT). METHODS: We studied 21 men aged 56±2.1 years who were on the LT list. They were classified according to Child-Pugh(CP) score from low to high liver dysfunction in CPA (n=4),CPB (n=11) and CPC (n=6)...

AIM: To investigate the safety of adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (A-A LDLT) in both donors and recipients. METHODS: From January 2002 to July 2006, 50 cases of A-A LDLT were performed at West China Hospital, Sichuan University, consisting of 47 cases using right lobe graft without middle hepatic vein (MHV), and 3 cases using dual grafts (one case using two left lobe, 2 using one right lobe and one left lobe). The most common diagnoses were hepatitis B liver cirrosis, 30 (60%) cases; and hepatocellular carcinoma, 15 (30%) cases in adult recipients...

When possible, diseases by expectant mothers and newborns, like long-term disabilities also, should be prevented by establishing early diagnoses, evaluation and implementation adequate therapy. The major goal of medical care is prevention of disorders with provision of adequate prenatal care for the expectant mother and precautions regarding the exposure to teratogenic infections. The range of pathological conditions produced by infections agents is wide, and the difference between maternal and fetal effects caused by any one agent is also important...

The aim of the present study was to determine the usefulness of elastic band ligation in the prevention of hemorrhage recurrence by esophageal varices. Forty-five patients without known hepatocarcinoma who had survived a hemorrhagic variceal episode were included in the study. Seventeen patients (38%) were Child-Pugh A, 22 (49%) B, and 6 (13%) C, with the hepatitis C virus and alcohol being the etiology of cirrosis in 55 and 20% of the cases, respectively. The first ligation session was performed between the third and fifth days after the hemorrhagic episode and the posterior sessions were carried out at intervals of 2-4 weeks...

A total of 1,053 cirrhotic patients were included in a prospective study to determine whether malnutrition is a risk factor for mortality in cirrhotic patients. Child-Pugh classification as well as clinical and biochemical variables were used to assess the severity of cirrhosis. Nutritional status was evaluated both by anthropometric and clinical measurements. Patients were defined as malnourished when midarm muscle area (MAMA) and/or midarm fat area (MAFA) were below the 5th percentile of an age- and sex-matched population...

A cross-sectional multicentric study was carried out over a six-month period as part of the "Progetto Nazionale Cirrosi Epatica", in order to update information about: a) the prevalence of different aetiologic factors and various nosological varieties of cirrhosis in Italy, as well as its presenting modalities; b) the currently used approach either to the diagnosis or the treatment of complications of cirrhosis; c) the impact of liver cirrhosis on medical care in terms of number of hospitalizations and length of hospital stay, instrumental procedures and management, and d) the size of patient's population referred to the participating centers, in order to help design further studies...
