Variability in experimental results have led to criticism regarding the validity of the rat after portacaval anastomosis (PCA) as a model of changes induced by portal-systemic shunting (PSS). A nonsuture technique using cyanoacrylate glue has been reported to yield a better experimental preparation. To investigate if variations in splanchnic hemodynamics(More)
It has been suggested that some patients with cirrhosis are unfit to operate a motor vehicle. However, performance while driving a motor vehicle has not been evaluated in such patients. In this pilot study, we assessed the fitness to drive of stable individuals with cirrhosis and clinical evidence of portal hypertension, portal-systemic shunting and no(More)
BACKGROUND Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte abnormality seen in patients with aneurysmal SAH. Clinically significant hyponatremia (Serum Sodium <131 mEq/L) which needs treatment, has been redefined recently and there is a paucity of outcome studies based on this. This study aims to identify the mean Serum Sodium (S.Na+) level and its duration(More)
Both increased and decreased values of cerebral blood flow have been reported in liver disease. Furthermore, the relation between the cerebral circulation and the generalized hemodynamic disturbance seen in chronic liver disease with portal-systemic shunting has not been fully characterized. We studied this problem in a well defined model of the(More)
