Hippocampal atrophy and functional connectivity disruption in cirrhotic patients with minimal hepatic encephalopathy
The hippocampus is a crucial pathological node for minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) and it is associated with various cognitive impairments. Investigations on alterations involving hippocampalExpand

Disrupted Brain Intrinsic Networks and Executive Dysfunction in Cirrhotic Patients without Overt Hepatic Encephalopathy
Objective Patients with cirrhosis often exhibit cognitive deficits, particularly executive dysfunction, which is considered a predictor of overt hepatic encephalopathy (OHE). We examined brainExpand

Aberrant topological organization of the functional brain network associated with prior overt hepatic encephalopathy in cirrhotic patients
A higher risk of cognitive impairments has been found after an overt hepatic encephalopathy (OHE) episode in cirrhotic patients. We investigated the effect of prior OHE episodes on the topologicalExpand

Association Between Carotid Bifurcation Geometry and Atherosclerotic Plaque Vulnerability
Supplemental Digital Content is available in the text. Objective: Carotid bifurcation geometry has been believed to be a risk factor for the initiation of atherosclerosis because of its influence onExpand

Identification of patients with and without minimal hepatic encephalopathy based on gray matter volumetry using a support vector machine learning algorithm
Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is characterized by diffuse abnormalities in cerebral structure, such as reduced cortical thickness and altered brain parenchymal volume. This study tested theExpand

Aberrant dynamic functional network connectivity in cirrhotic patients without overt hepatic encephalopathy.
PURPOSE Neurocognitive impairment is a common complication in cirrhosis and is associated with alterations in static functional network connectivity (FNC) between distinct brain systems. However,Expand
