Correlation of Clinical and Histopathologic Parameters with Ultrasonographic Grades in Pediatric Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.

CONCLUSION: Altogether, ultrasonographic severity of fatty liver shows good correlation with that of clinical parameters and hepatic pathology. PMID: 31808322 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we investigated the benefits of the electrocardiogram (ECG)-based R wave pulse wave index (ERWVI) for the diagnosis of CA. MATERIAL AND METHODS According to CA examinations by color Doppler ultrasound, patients were assigned to positive and negative groups. The ECG R wave-Pulse wave transit time (ERWPTT) was obtained by synchronously collecting ECG signals (R wave in ECG) and the time variations in maximum finger pulse oxygen (DOP) on the ECG monitor. RESULTS ERPWI was positively correlated with sex, age, BMI, diastolic/systolic blood pressure, fasting blood glucose, uric acid, cholesterol and triglyceride l...

CONCLUSIONS: Children with obesity carrying the TM6SF2 167K allele show higher eGFR levels compared with E167 allele homozygous subjects, independently of NAFLD. A major effect of this polymorphism in the presence of NAFLD was captured. PMID: 31923913 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Our results revealed sex, age, and BMI modulate the association of physical examinations and blood biochemistry parameters and NAFLD, which may facilitate the development of personalized early warning and prevention strategies of NAFLD for at-risk populations.

Abstract Cirrhosis is the 12th leading cause of death in the United States. Newer research has established that liver fibrosis is a dynamic process and that early cirrhosis may be reversible. Only one in three people with cirrhosis knows they have it. Most patients with cirrhosis remain asymptomatic until the onset of decompensation. When clinical signs, symptoms, or abnormal liver function tests are discovered, further evaluation should be pursued promptly. The most common causes of cirrhosis are viral hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Initial workup includes viral hepatitis se...

Abstract AIM: The association between liver fibrosis (LF), as assessed by either histology or liver stiffness measurement (LSM), and the presence of early kidney dysfunction (EKD) was investigated in this study, as was also the diagnostic performance of LSM for identifying the presence of EKD in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 214 adults with non-cirrhotic biopsy-proven NAFLD were recruited from two independent medical centres. Their histological stage of LF was quantified using Brunt's criteria. Vibration-controlled transient elastography (TE), using...

This study lists the various anomalies on the basis of 504 references selected from a PubMed search in October 2018. RESULTS: The anomalies are grouped into three categories: anatomical anomalies: duodenal atresia and stenosis (3.9%), duodenal web and annular pancreas; aberrant right subclavian artery (12% of children with DS with cardiac anomaly); Hirschsprung's disease (2.76%); anorectal malformation (1.16%); congenital vascular malformations of the liver; orofacial cleft, bifid uvula (4.63%), and submucous orofacial cleft; esophageal atresia (0.5-0.9%); pyloric stenosis (0.3%); diaphragmatic hernia; malrotation of ...

CONCLUSION: Gender, BMI, and HDL were found to be predictors of steatosis. Male patients with low HDL and high BMI are at greater risk of steatosis and should be carefully examined for the presence of NAFLD. PMID: 31754954 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Both FLI and HSI can serve as screening tools for NAFLD in OSAHS adults. The FLI shows better performance in diagnosing NAFLD than HSI. TRIAL REGISTRATION: Chinese Clinical Trial Registry (No. ChiCTR-OOB-15007253), PMID: 31765354 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common cause of liver disease, the most common cause of chronic liver function augmentation and it will be the most common indication for liver transplantation in 2020. The prevalence of NAFLD has increased over time in line with the increase of obesity and type 2 diabetes. There is a discrepancy between the studies concerning the prevalence of NAFLD because of the different diagnostic methods used (ultrasound or magnetic resonance, fibroscan, controlled attenuation parameter (CAP), histology). Because of its high prevalence the impact of NAFLD in publ...
