OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the sensitivity of MR imaging in the diagnosis of liver hemochromatosis and its ability to quantify hepatic iron concentration (HIC). SUBJECTS AND METHODS MR images were prospectively obtained in 58 patients suspected to have hemochromatosis. We used a scanner with a 0.5-T magnet and two sequences:(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS In severe (Maddrey score >or=32) alcoholic hepatitis (AH), infection is classically viewed as a contraindication for corticosteroids, although specific data are lacking. This study's aims were (1) to evaluate the incidence of infection in patients with severe AH before and after corticosteroid treatment; (2) to determine whether infection(More)
OBJECTIVE Beta-blockers have been shown to reduce portal pressure in patients with cirrhosis and limit the development of portosystemic shunts in portal hypertensive animals. Thus, a randomized double-blind trial was conducted to evaluate propranolol in the prevention of the development of large oesophageal varices in patients with cirrhosis without varices(More)
UNLABELLED Clinicians continue to raise questions concerning the necessity of treating chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected patients with normal alanine aminotransferase (N-ALT), in light of their slower progression to cirrhosis than patients with elevated alanine aminotraferase (E-ALT). This study was undertaken to predict the impact of pegylated(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to assess pulmonary and intestinal permeability (PP and IP, respectively) in patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis (ALC). Thirty-five non-smoking patients with biopsy-proven ALC were included (mean grade B in Child's classification). None had a previous history of pulmonary disease and all had a normal chest(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Several models have been used to determine prognoses of patients with alcoholic hepatitis. These include static systems (the Maddrey discriminant function; age, bilirubin, international normalized ratio, creatinine [ABIC] score; and model for end-stage liver disease [MELD] score) and dynamic models (the Lille model). We aimed to combine(More)
