Fulminant liver failure is a syndrome that is frequently complicated by cerebral edema and increased intracranial pressure. Cerebral blood flow has been reported as high in some studies but low in others. This study undertook to measure cerebral blood flow and cerebral metabolic rate for oxygen in 30 patients with fulminant liver failure in grade 4 encephalopathy and to assess these parameters after intervention with hyperventilation and infusions of mannitol, epoprostenol and acetylcysteine… CONTINUE READING
