Assessment for enlarged spleen is a safe and reliable tool in the diagnosis of esophageal varices in liver cirrhotic
There is some evidence that [beta]-blockade may help some cirrhotic
patients with baseline prolonged QT interval.
Patients were categorized as cirrhotic
types, with a further subclassification of the non-cirrhotic
type into acute and chronic PVT, depending on the image of cavernoma transformation (formation of collateral blood vessels) or evidence of PH including splenomegaly and esophageal varices, as features of chronic PVT.
The prolonged plasma half-life of PAA in cirrhotic
subjects may allow reduced dosing frequency of oral OCR-002.
Udagani et al15 reported that hyponatremia increases the risk of neurological disorders in cirrhotic
patients compared with normonatremia.
Therefore, it is recommended in the guidelines that upper gastrointestinal endoscopy should be performed in all cirrhotic
patients to screen the presence of esophageal varices (5,6).
Patient who were relapsers and non responders, and genotype 1, 4, 5, 6 were mainly given triple therapy while treatment naive and cirrhotic
were given dual therapy.
Another important limiting factor is the absence of liver transplant facilities at our centre, which restricts the extent of liver resection in relatively high-risk cirrhotic
In fact, AASLD guidelines recommend testing for Y93H before genotype 3a cirrhotic
patients start any SOF/NS5A inhibitor combination, to decide whether extending treatment duration and adding RBV may be necessary.
We also want to determine the mortality during hospital and predictors for increase mortality in cirrhotic
patients presented with HE.
Among 156 alcoholics, 78 (50%) patients were diagnosed as cirrhotic
10] In fact, the occurrence of SBP or other severe bacterial infections markedly worsens the prognosis in patients with cirrhosis, and it has been proposed that a new prognostic stage of cirrhosis not reflected in current staging systems should be defined, the so-called "critically ill cirrhotic
