Contributing factors and outcomes of burn-associated cholestasis

Although the outcomes of severe burn injuries have improved over recent decades, morbidity and mortality remain high: almost 40% of patients develop acute respiratory distress syndrome[1,2], up to 50% of patients develop acute kidney injury[3,4] and the mortality ranges from 15%[1,3,5] to 25-30%.[2,4] Liver necrosis and hepatic dysfunction after burn injuries have been reported since the late 1930s.[6] An autopsy series from the 1980s described increased liver size and lipid infiltrations after burn injuries.

AbstractBackgroundIncomplete polyp resection (IPR) is recognized as a risk factor for interval colorectal cancer (ICC), and is, therefore, an important issue in polypectomy. Cold snare polypectomy (CSP) is a procedure that does not involve electrocautery and has no burn effect. Therefore, there is the possibility that the risk of ICC associated with IPR is higher in cases undergoing CSP than in those undergoing hot polypectomy. However, little is known about the risk factors for IPR after CSP.PurposePrecise identification of the risk factors can lead to prevention of IPR after CSP. Therefore, we performed this observationa...

ConclusionsIn patients surviving their ICU stay, ICU cholangiopathy is not uniformly fatal in the short term or clinically symptomatic in the medium term. Preservation of the distal common bile duct appears to be a finding differentiating ICU cholangiopathy from other diffuse cholangiopathies.
