Portal and hepatic
plasma flow were calculated from the plasma p-aminohippureate concentrations as described by Katz and Bergman (1969b).
The patient also developed altered sensorium (Glasgow coma scale 9/15) with hepatic
encephalopathy and was shifted to Medical ICU.
Chronic indwelling catheters were installed surgically in the mesenteric portal and hepatic
veins and a femoral artery to measure blood flow and net flow of across portal-drained viscera (PDV) liver and splanchnic tissues (liver+PDV).
Except simple hepatic
cysts and polycystic liver disease which can be confidently diagnosed on the basis of ultrasound only, contrast-enhanced CT or MRI is essential to establish a definitive diagnosis or provide a reasonable differential diagnosis.
Ghrelin-ip cells were found within the hepatic

3%) patients underwent hepatic
resection for underlying hepatocellular carcinoma, with 30(81%) of them being cirrhotic.
The right and left hepatic
ducts and proximal of the common hepatic

In more than 90 percent of cats, hepatic
lipidosis is secondary to an underlying condition, says Meredith L.
resection is a very complicated, technically challenging procedure as it involves the removal of a portion of the liver, pointed out health experts.
Conclusion: Non invasive Hepatic
vein Doppler waveform study showed improvement in Doppler waveform after administration of octreotide in 76% cases.
Studies showed that SjS patients with anticentromere antibody are more sensitive to autoimmune hepatic
Background: To determine the frequency of factors leading to hepatic
encephalopathy (HE) in patients with liver cirrhosis at a tertiary care hospital.
One hundred twenty-one patients with overt hepatic
encephalopathy (61 with HE1 [mild grade] and 60 with HE2 [moderate grade]) were randomly assigned to receive, in double-blind fashion, 2 g of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) or placebo twice a day for 90 days.
