One proposed mechanism for acute and chronic hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a disturbance in cerebral energy metabolism. It also reviews the current status of this mechanism in both acute and chronic HE, as well as in other hyperammonemic disorders. It also reviews abnormalities in glycolysis, lactate metabolism, citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation as well as associated energy impairment. Additionally, the role of mitochondrial permeability transition (mPT), a recently established… CONTINUE READING
