​BY GREGORY TAYLOR, DO; DAWN ZELENKA-JOSHOWITZ, DO; &ANDREW TAECKER, DOA 34-year-old man presented with intermittent fever and body aches for 10 days. He had been visiting family in India, and the symptoms began when he returned home. His fever had been as high as 104°F, and he was experiencing nausea, two episodes of bilious emesis, body aches, nonspecific abdominal pain, and multiple episodes of watery, nonbloody diarrhea.He said he knew of no tuberculosis exposure or ill contacts, and he was current on his routine influenza and hepatitis A vaccines. His temperature was 101.4°F (he had taken acetaminophen t...

We developed a protocol to investigate and optimize the application of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) to non-invasive diagnosis of progressing fatty liver disease in mouse models. Eighteen 4-wk-old male C57 L/J mice were randomly assigned to one of the three groups and placed on a control diet, high-fat diet or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis diet for the next 10 wk. After 14 wk, B-mode imaging and CEUS imaging using a VisualSonics Vevo2100 system were performed. CEUS imaging and data analysis using three different parameters —peak enhancement, wash-in rate and wash-in perfusion index—revealed a significant ...

Ultrasound is one of the most important imaging modalities in pediatric imaging because of its accessibility, portability, lack of ionizing radiation, and ability to generally perform examinations without need for sedation. Ultrasound elastography can measure the stiffness of various tissues. This review article aims to discuss how ultrasound elastography has performed in evaluating multiple pathologies in the pediatric population. The best studied pediatric applications are in liver diseases such as fibrosis, biliary atresia, and hepatic vascular congestion. Measuring muscle stiffness in cerebral palsy is the most promisi...

Publication date: Available online 29 November 2018Source: Canadian Journal of CardiologyAuthor(s): Steven L. Rathgeber, Kevin C. HarrisAbstractThe growing awareness of Fontan associated liver disease (FALD) in adults with Fontan physiology has provided the impetus to better understand the natural history of Fontan associated liver disease (FALD) and develop a reliable non-invasive method to diagnose and monitor liver health in this population. Biochemical and imaging tests have been investigated to determine their association with liver pathology. The congestive hepatopathy that develops after the Fontan procedure has mad...

AbstractSince I moved from the National Cancer Center to Shinshu University, I have been performing living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), which is the only way to save the life of patients with end-stage liver disease. In June 1990, we performed the first LDLT that case was the first successful case in Japan. The patient remains healthy and is enjoying a normal life still 28  years after the transplant. In 1993, we successfully performed adult-to-adult LDLT, which was the first successful case in the world. The patient enjoyed a normal life for 17 years until she died at 70 years of age. For small child...

We describe the development and results of mass spectrometry-based assays for glycan screening based on either MALDI-MS or ESI analysis. These analyses might be based on the glycan content of serum or on glycan screening for target molecules from serum. We describe some of the specific markers that have been developed as a result, including for proteins such as Haptoglobin, Hemopexin, Kininogen, and others. We discuss the potential role for other technologies, including PGC chromatography and ion mobility, to separate isoforms of glycan markers. Analyses of glycopeptides based on new technologies and innovative softwares a...

Conclusions: Elevated liver stiffness assessed by either TE or pSWE is associated with an increased risk for liver related complications including SOS, non-relapse mortality and decreased survival after allogeneic HCT. LSM should be evaluated further as a potential additional prognostic marker in the comorbidity assessment before transplant. Pts at higher risk for liver related events could be subject to additional prophylaxis such as defibrotide for the prevention of SOS.DisclosuresFranke: Novartis: Consultancy, Honoraria, Research Funding; Pfizer: Consultancy; Jazz: Honoraria.

This study compared measurements of LIC from RTS to those by the SQUID. The RTS in this study was modified from an earlier model to make the baseline reading more stable, and to increase the accuracy of the water reference measurement to which the patient's magnetic response is compared. The magnetic-field source and sensing coils were enlarged to increase the signal of the liver compared with that of the overlying tissue.LIC was measured once on the SQUID and once on the RTS at a single visit. Using ultrasound imaging, optimum liver measurement position was determined and marked with an x-y-positioning and z-distance sens...

We report the results of a prospective single center study evaluating the role of LSM assessed by Transient Elastography (TE), in adult patients undergoing allogeneic HSCT for haematological malignancies since April 2016 at the Institute of Hematology "L. and A. Seràgnoli", Sant'Orsola-Malpighi University Hospital, Bologna, Italy. The exclusion criteria were patients with Body Mass Index (BMI) over 40 kg/m2, ascites and diagnosis of advanced chronic liver disease (ACLD) at pre-HSCT assessment. LSM were assessed bedside of patients by TE, using the FibroScan® apparatus with "M" probe (Echosens...
