Of the 25 patients included, 22 had hepatitis B cirrhosis, 1 had hepatitis C cirrhosis, 1 had alcoholic cirrhosis
, and 1 had schistosomiasis cirrhosis.
Thus, identification of pathogenesis-related factors indicating poor prognosis in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis
is necessary for early prevention and treatment.
We found that HEV3-ra infections caused severe decompensation in a patient with alcoholic cirrhosis
. Chronic infections developed in the 4 immunocompromised patients.
Most recently, an allele of patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 3 (PNPLA3 I148M), a triglyceride-degrading enzyme, was identified as an independent risk factor for alcoholic cirrhosis
(Anstee et al.
 followed 165 liver cirrhosis patients for 33 months and found that 28.9% with alcoholic cirrhosis
developed GS during this period, but only 1.9% of viral hepatitis-cirrhosis patients developed GS.
The risk factors associated with hepatocellular carcinoma are Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, alcoholic cirrhosis
, metabolic syndrome, biliary cirrhosis, and chronic liver injury.
Most of the rest is attributed to increases in suicide and in chronic liver diseases like alcoholic cirrhosis
. The death rates in 2013 for midlife whites with a high school education or less, from drug poisoning, suicide, and cirrhosis, were 58, 39, and 39 per 100,000, respectively.
The criteria for diagnosing alcoholic cirrhosis
were the presence of alcohol consumption [greater than or equal to] 40 gr/day for longer than 10 years, signs of advanced liver disease including jaundice, hepatic encephalopathy, ascites, portal hypertensive bleeding, or splenomegaly, the presence of laboratory abnormalities such as low serum albumin, and/or prolonged prothrombin time, and the presence of radiologic features of cirrhosis such as a nodular liver surface, ascites, and splenomegaly.
The purpose of this article is to describe and comparatively analyze the value of DALY in terms of its components, YLL and YLD, for alcohol use/ dependence and the non-viral etiology of cirrhosis, a category that includes alcoholic cirrhosis
, in the Brazilian study of the disease burden for 2008, broken down by gender and age range.
Plasma YKL40: a new potential marker of fibrosis in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis
? Scand J Gastroenterol 1997;32:582-90.
Remarkably, coffee may help lower the risk of alcoholic cirrhosis
. A study conducted by the American Medical Association revealed that a cup of coffee lowers one's risk by 20 percent, four cups by as much as 80 percent!
Analysis of subgroups indicated that treatment was effective in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis
(P = 0.01) and in patients initially rated 'Child A' (P = 0.03).
