We report a case of vanishing gastroschisis visualized by antenatal ultrasound with a 7-year long term follow-up. Currently, the child is still dependent on daily parenteral nutrition with no signs of hepatotoxicity. To our knowledge, it ’s the fourth case with a long-term follow-up. Vanishing gastroschisis is a rare complication of gastroschisis. However, physicians should be aware of it because its prognosis is worse than classical gastroschisis. When a vanishing gastroschisis is visualized or suspected by antenatal ultrasound, prenatal counseling is required with explanations about the risk of short bowel syndrome...

This study included 240 consecutive LDLT recipients in whom 564 MHVTs (>5 mm) were reconstructed using IVG. Regular follow-up Doppler US was performed to assess the patency of the MHVTs-IVG and, if there was an obstruction, to evaluate for the establishment of collateral drainage. MHVTs with obstruction were subdivided into those with and without intrahepatic veno-venous collaterals on Doppler US and were correlated with computed tomography (CT) scans. RESULTS: MHVTs-IVG obstruction was identified in 137 patients with 227 MHVTs on follow-up Doppler US (6.2 ± 4.7 months). Ninety patients with 149 MHVTs...

This report describes a diffuse HEH with splenic metastasis on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) images and delayed mutifocal bone metastasis after liver transplantation (LTx). Patient concerns: A 30-year-old male was admitted to our hospital with a complaint of abdominal distension, fatigue, and anorexia for 2 months. Diagnoses: Mild to moderate FDG uptake in the whole liver, and multifocal FDG uptake in the spleen were observed on 18F-FDG PET/CT scan. Ultrasound guided liver biopsy was performed, and a diagnosis of HEH was confirmed. Interventions: The pat...

Endoscopic ultrasound guided fine needle liver biopsy (EUS-LB) has emerged as a new technique to obtain liver tissue for the workup of parenchymal liver disease. We evaluated the efficacy and peri-procedural adverse events of EUS-LB in a tertiary center with high volume of orthotopic liver transplant (OLT) patients.

Publication date: Available online 5 May 2018 Source:Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hepatology Author(s): Mohammed F. Sheikh, Nazri Unni, Banwari Agarwal Cerebral oedema and Intracranial Hypertension (ICH) are serious complications of acute liver failure affecting approximately 30% of patients, resulting in neurological injury or death. Multiple pathogenetic mechanisms contribute to the pathogenesis of HE including circulating neurotoxins such as ammonia, systemic and neuro-inflammation, infection and cerebral hyperaemia due to loss of cerebral vascular autoregulation. Early recognition and diagnosis is often diffic...

Conclusions Radiologic interventions for BCS lead to remarkable improvement of liver function and a good overall outcome and midterm transplant-free survival. Patients receiving anatomic recanalization show improved liver synthetic functions compared with patients treated with DIPS.
