Hepatic steatosis is a condition frequently encountered in clinical practice, with potential progression towards chirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Ultrasonography (US) is one of the noninvasive imaging techniques used in the diagnosis of steatosis. We will review the US diagnostic criteria, the US performance in the diagnosis and grading of hepatic steatosis, the US steatosis models, but also its limitations in the diagnosis of steatosis. In addition, we will discuss 2 modern methods of assessing hepatic steatosis using ultrasounds, namely the computerized processing of data forming the US image and the controlled attenuation parameter measured with unidimensional transient elastography...

The efficacy of the combined use of the adenozyne receptors A2 type activator and ischemic prepare before the liver resections on the background of biliary chirrhosis was studied in vivo on rats. The ischemic prepare allowed the increase of the blood flow velocity and the general hepatic blood volume. The use of the adenozyne receptors A2 type activator showed the synergic effect. The use of CGS increased the ability of hepatocytes to catch oxygen, improves the velocity of the transmembrane transport and the intracellular exchange reactions...

The details of molecular alterations occurring during hepatocarcinogenesis have not been revealed yet. Nevertheless, it is known that microRNAs (miRNA), these short RNA molecules regulating gene expression mainly in a negative way, are also involved in this process. Altered miRNA expression levels are present in liver diseases when compared with normal liver tissue, and the observed alterations depend mainly on which is more advantegous for the disease: activation or inhibition of the genes (e.g. oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes) regulated by the altered miRNAs...

The case was 54-year-old male with some risks such as chronic heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and liver chirrhosis. He was admitted because of severe back pain and diagnosed as empyema by preoperative thoracentesis. By thoracoscopic procedures under local anesthesia, fibrinopurulent tissues were cleaned as much as possible and 3 of chest tubes were replaced. The final diagnosis was Bacillus cereus pyothorax by bacterial cultures of pleural effusion. Intrathoracic cavity was cleaned with physiological saline solution...

We report a 37-year-old woman with slowly developing muscular weakness for 2 years following insidious stiffness of calf muscle. Serum CK was elevated up to 4,207 IU/l. She presented sleepiness, weakness of proximal and truncal muscles and systemic muscular atrophy. While she had not experienced dyspnea, her arterial blood gas analysis revealed extreme hypoxia and hypercapnea due to weakness of respiratory muscles. Echocardiogram showed thinness and hypokinesis of left ventricular wall, and arrhythmia was pointed out by holter ECG...

Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection and its sequelae (liver chirrhosis and hepatic carcinoma) are endemic in Africa. The risk of transmission of the infection during dental treatment is real. This study was carried out to determine the rate of Hepatits B Surface Antigen (HBsAg) as a marker of hepatitis B virus infection in patients undergoing dental extraction in order to highlight the potential risk of nosocomial transmission among the Dental Health Workers (DHW) and their patients. Three hundred (143 males and 157 females) consecutive patients requiring dental extraction who volunteered were enrolled into this study...

A normal exocrine pancreatic function was demonstrated by the secretin-pancreozymin-test in five patients with Wilson's disease either without (n = 2) or with cirrhosis of the liver but without portal hypertension (n = 3). In another patient with cirrhosis of the liver without portal hypertension the pancreas was normal at post mortem examination. In two patients with cirrhosis of the liver and portal hypertension bicarbonate (n = 1) and amylase secretion (n = 2) were diminished. The regression of portal hypertension under therapy with penicillamine in one of the latter cases was paralleled by the return to normal of exocrine pancreatic function...
