Paracentesis-induced circulatory dysfunction: mechanism and effect on hepatic hemodynamics in cirrhosis.
- L. Ruíz-del-Árbol, A. Monescillo, W. Jiménez, A. García-Plaza, V. Arroyo, J. Rodés
- 1 August 1997
BACKGROUND & AIMS Therapeutic paracentesis may be associated with a circulatory dysfunction, manifested by a marked increase of the plasma renin activity and plasma norepinephrine. The aim of the… Expand
Endoplasmic reticulum stress inhibition protects steatotic and non-steatotic livers in partial hepatectomy under ischemia–reperfusion

- 1 July 2010
During partial hepatectomy, ischemia–reperfusion (I/R) is commonly applied in clinical practice to reduce blood flow. Steatotic livers show impaired regenerative response and reduced tolerance to… Expand
Ascites after liver transplantation.
- I. Cirera, M. Navasa, +6 authors J. Rodés
- Liver transplantation : official publication of…
- 1 March 2000
Massive ascites after liver transplantation, although uncommon, usually represents a serious adverse event. The pathogenesis of this complication has not been adequately investigated. To determine… Expand
PREVALENCE OF ANTIBODIES TO HEPATITIS C VIRUS IN SPANISH PATIENTS WITH HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA AND HEPATIC CIRRHOSIS
The prevalence of antibodies against hepatitis C virus (HCV) was investigated in 96 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma, 106 patients with liver cirrhosis without evidence of cancer, and 177… Expand
S-adenosylmethionine in alcoholic liver cirrhosis: a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter clinical trial.
BACKGROUND/AIM The efficacy of S-adenosylmethionine (AdoMet) in the treatment of liver cell injury has been demonstrated in several experimental models. The aim of this study was to investigate the… Expand
Activation of peroxisome proliferator‐activated receptor‐α inhibits the injurious effects of adiponectin in rat steatotic liver undergoing ischemia–reperfusion
Hepatic steatosis is a major risk factor in ischemia–reperfusion (I/R). Adiponectin acts as an antiobesity and anti‐inflammatory hormone. Adiponectin activates peroxisome proliferator‐activated… Expand
COMPARISON OF RIFAMPICIN WITH PHENOBARBITONE FOR TREATMENT OF PRURITUS IN BILIARY CIRRHOSIS
The anti-pruritic effects of rifampicin (10 mg/kg) and phenobarbitone (3 mg/kg) were assessed in 22 patients with primary biliary cirrhosis in a crossover randomised clinical trial. Each agent was… Expand
Ischemic preconditioning affects interleukin release in fatty livers of rats undergoing ischemia/reperfusion
- A. Serafín, J. Roselló-Catafau, N. Prats, E. Gelpí, J. Rodés, C. Peralta
- 1 March 2004
The present study evaluates the effect of ischemic preconditioning on interleukin‐1 (IL‐1) and interleukin‐10 (IL‐10) generation following hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) in normal and steatotic… Expand
Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase and nitric oxide in rat steatotic liver transplantation.
- E. Carrasco-Chaumel, J. Roselló-Catafau, +6 authors C. Peralta
- Chemistry, Medicine
- Journal of hepatology
- 1 December 2005
BACKGROUND/AIMS Hepatic steatosis is a risk factor for transplantation. We examined the role of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and nitric oxide (NO) in the benefits of preconditioning in… Expand
Oral, nonabsorbable antibiotics prevent infection in cirrhotics with gastrointestinal hemorrhage
To investigate if oral, nonabsorbable antibiotics prevent bacterial infections in cirrhotics with gastrointestinal hemorrhage, 140 consecutive patients were randomly allocated into two groups: 68… Expand
