BACKGROUND Color Doppler is a noninvasive method for assessing portal hemodynamics. Laser Doppler velocimetry is useful in assessment of microcirculatory abnormalities in portal hypertensive gastropathy (PHG). AIMS To study portal hemodynamics by color Doppler and gastric mucosal blood flow (GMBF) by laser Doppler velocimetry in patients with cirrhosis.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of endovascular procedures for portal vein complications during orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between May 1994 and November 2004, we performed 504 OLTs in 464 adults. Seventy-eight patients (16.8%) presented with portal vein thrombosis (PVT). This analysis of patients from May 2000 to(More)
BACKGROUND Cirrhotic cardiomyopathy has been reported to be a major cause of morbidity and mortality in liver transplant recipients. However, there is scant data from Asia. With liver transplantation programs gradually being established in the region, Asian hepatologists are bound to face this entity. METHODS Thirty patients with alcoholic cirrhosis and(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate long-term results after liver transplantation from non-heart-beating donors (NHBD) using the method of chest and abdominal compression-decompression to maintain donors. METHODS From December 1995 to November 2004, 10 NHBD were identified and maintained by means of the method of chest and abdominal(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Investigators have documented an increase in renal artery resistance in cirrhotic patients. We studied the hepatic and renal hemodynamics by color Doppler in patients with liver cirrhosis in relation to the presence and severity of ascites. METHODS A prospective study was carried out in a large public hospital on 33 patients with(More)
INTRODUCTION Recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa, NovoSeven, NovoNordiskA/S, Bagsvaerd, Denmark) has shown benefits in hemophilic patients and recently in transplant recipients. This study presents our experiences with rFVIIa in complicated liver transplant recipients. METHODS From May 2001 to August 2004, rFVIIa was administered to 7 patients(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Intramedullary fat-containing benign childhood tumors of the cord include lipomas, dermoid cysts, and teratomas. These are embryonal tumors. Most intramedullary fat-containing tumors are solitary. Multiple intramedullary lipomas are rare and may represent a spinal lipomatous malformation. The presence of another intramedullary dermoid(More)
We describe imaging findings of a patient with multiple intracranial lipomas, hypogenetic corpus callosum and a vestibular schwannoma. We did not find association of intracranial lipomas and vestibular schwannoma in English literature.
Simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation is presently a well-accepted procedure for patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus and renal failure. However, experiences with combined pancreas and liver transplantation are scarce, a few data are available about the best immunosuppression for these patients. We report our experience with two patients who(More)
