Complications associated with these procedures, such as hepatocellular failure, have been observed with increasing frequency. Reported here are 3(More)
BACKGROUND For living-related liver transplantation, harvesting a right hepatic graft that includes the middle hepatic vein (MHV) has been recommended to improve venous drainage of the graft. However, it may result in congestion of the donor's remaining segment IV, increasing the potential risk to the donor. This study aimed to compare safety levels for(More)
BACKGROUND HBV/HCV coinfection is a common finding among hemodialysis patients. However, there is scarce information concerning the impact of HBV coinfection on the response to treatment of HCV-infected patients on hemodialysis. AIM We aimed to compare the rate of sustained virologic response (SVR) to treatment with interferon-alfa (IFN) between(More)
In coinfected HBV/HCV patients, HBV replication is usually suppressed by HCV over the time. No study to date has evaluated the HBV viremia in long-term follow-up after HCV treatment in hemodialysis patients with HBV/HCV coinfection. This study aimed to assess the evolution of HBV viremia after HCV treatment in this special population. Ten hemodialysis(More)
