Ethylmalonic encephalopathy is a fatal, rapidly progressive mitochondrial disorder caused by ETHE1 mutations, whose peculiar clinical and biochemical features are due to the toxic accumulation of hydrogen sulphide and of its metabolites, including thiosulphate. In mice with ethylmalonic encephalopathy, liver-targeted adeno-associated virus-mediated ETHE1(More)
BACKGROUND Mortality after liver transplantation depends on heterogeneous recipient and donor factors. Our aim was to assess risk of death and to develop models to help predict mortality after liver transplantation. METHODS We analysed data from 34,664 first adult liver transplants from the European Liver Transplant Registry to identify factors associated(More)
Over the last 15 years, various oncology groups throughout the world have used the PRETEXT system for staging malignant primary liver tumours of childhood. This paper, written by members of the radiology and surgery committees of the International Childhood Liver Tumor Strategy Group (SIOPEL), presents various clarifications and revisions to the original(More)
BACKGROUND Before 1999, infants born in the UK with suspected biliary atresia were investigated in regional centres, and, if confirmed, a Kasai operation was done there. Since 1999, all infants with suspected biliary atresia in England and Wales, UK, have been referred to one of three designated centres where both the Kasai operation and liver(More)
OBJECTIVE—The ATP-sensitive K ϩ channel (K ATP) controls insulin secretion from the islet. Gain-or loss-of-function mutations in channel subunits underlie human neonatal diabetes and congenital hyperinsulinism (HI), respectively. In this study, we sought to identify the mechanistic basis of K ATP-induced HI in two probands and to characterize the clinical(More)
Hepatic epithelioid haemangio-endothelioma (HEHE) is an endothelium-derived tumour of low-to-medium grade malignancy. It is predominantly seen in adults and is unresponsive to chemotherapy. Liver transplantation is an accepted indication when the tumour is unresectable. Hepatic epithelioid haemangio-endothelioma is very rare in children and results after(More)
10 children who died suddenly during liver transplantation were found at necropsy to have extensive obstruction of small lung vessels by platelet aggregates. In 7 of these patients pulmonary artery pressure changes before death were consistent with acute obstruction of the pulmonary vascular bed. Platelet aggregates were not strikingly increased in blood(More)
Familial intrahepatic cholestases (FICs) are a heterogeneous group of autosomal recessive disorders of childhood that disrupt bile formation and present with cholestasis of hepatocellular origin. Three distinct forms are described: FIC1 and FIC2, associated with low/normal GGT level in serum, which are caused by impaired bile salt secretion due to defects(More)
In a 9 month-old infant, who displayed an epileptic seizure, the Brain CT-Scan shows a ventricular enlargement and a bilateral pericerebral effusion, associated with a left parieto-temporal arterio-venous malformation. Angiogram reveals a small angioma shunting the blood flow from the left middle cerebral artery into the lateral sinus. Intracranial(More)
