Effect of intravenous albumin on renal impairment and mortality in patients with cirrhosis and spontaneous bacterial peritonitis.
TLDR
In patients with cirrhosis and spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, treatment with intravenous albumin in addition to an antibiotic reduces the incidence of renal impairment and death in comparison with treatment with an antibiotic alone.
Bacterial infections in cirrhosis: Epidemiological changes with invasive procedures and norfloxacin prophylaxis
TLDR
In conclusion, infections caused by gram‐positive cocci have markedly increased in cirrhosis, and this phenomenon may be related to the current high degree of instrumentation of cirrhotic patients.
Identification of chronic hepatitis C patients without hepatic fibrosis by a simple predictive model
TLDR
A combination of easily accessible variables accurately predicts the absence of significant fibrosis and might render liver biopsy unnecessary in more than one third of patients with chronic hepatitis C.
Excellent long-term survival in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis and biochemical response to ursodeoxycholic Acid.
TLDR
Biochemical response to UDCA after 1 year is associated with a similar survival to the matched control population, clearly supporting the favorable effects of this treatment in PBC.
Management of cirrhosis and ascites.
TLDR
The authors describe measures for the control of ascites as well as strategies for its management and for the prevention of major complications, including gastrointestinal bleeding, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, and the hepatorenal syndrome.
Hepatitis C virus kinetics during and immediately after liver transplantation
TLDR
A sharp decrease in HCV viral load occurs during the anhepatic phase and immediately after graft reperfusion, most likely owing to a lack of virion production and hepatic viral clearance.
Terlipressin therapy with and without albumin for patients with hepatorenal syndrome: Results of a prospective, nonrandomized study
TLDR
Turbineressin therapy reverses HRS in a high proportion of patients and albumin appears to improve markedly the beneficial effects of terlipressin.
