Research on hepatic encephalopathy is hampered by the imprecise definition of this disabling complication of liver disease. Under this light, the Organisation Mondiale de Gastroentérologie commissioned a Working Party to reach a consensus in this area and to present it at the 11th World Congress of Gastroenterology in Vienna (1998). The Working Party continued its work thereafter and now present their final report. In summary, the Working Party has suggested a modification of current… Expand
Review of the final report of the 1998 Working Party on definition, nomenclature and diagnosis of hepatic encephalopathy.
TLDR
The various tests available for diagnosis and grading and the recommendations of the working party are discussed, which provide a framework for further studies on clinical trial methodology. Expand

Minimal hepatic encephalopathy: Consensus statement of a working party of the Indian National Association for Study of the Liver
TLDR
Questions related to the definition of MHE, its prevalence, diagnosis, clinical characteristics, pathogenesis, natural history and treatment were addressed by the members of the Working Party. Expand
Current and future diagnosis of hepatic encephalopathy
  • J. Bajaj
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Metabolic Brain Disease
  • 2010
TLDR
This short communication is based on the lecture given by the author at the 5th Hannover International Conference on Hepatic Encephalopathy held in Mainz, Germany in May 2009 and involved a concise review of currently available strategies to diagnose hepatic encephalopathy. Expand
New perspectives in hepatic encephalopathy.
TLDR
The terminology of hepatic encephalopathy (HE) remained poorly defined for decades until the report of the Hepatic Encephalopathy Consensus Group at the World Congress of Gastroenterology in 1998 led to standardization of diagnosis and explosion in the field of research in HE. Expand
Hepatic encephalopathy: a critical current review
TLDR
The classification system and its limitations, the neuropsychometric assessments and their challenges, as well as the present knowledge on the pathophysiological mechanisms are discussed. Expand
Prevalence of Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy in Patients With Liver Cirrhosis: A Cross-Sectional, Clinicoepidemiological, Multicenter, Nationwide Study in India: The PREDICT Study.
TLDR
Although MHE has been shown to adversely affect quality of life, prophylaxis for MHE is not routinely practiced in the Indian setting. Expand
Diagnosis and treatment of hepatic encephalopathy
TLDR
Evaluating new diagnostic and treatment strategies for HE and especially MHE for further use in clinical practice to cure the quality of life of cirrhotic patients and prevent clinical manifestation of HE is evaluated. Expand
New assessment of hepatic encephalopathy.
TLDR
The controversy regarding the use of a categorical or a continuous approach in measuring the severity of HE is discussed and the new methods presented are also valuable for investigating the neurological manifestations occurring after liver transplantation. Expand
Is minimal hepatic encephalopathy completely reversible following liver transplantation?

  • 2004
Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a metabolic neuropsychiatric syndrome that has the potential for full reversibility with liver transplantation (LT). However, in recent years there have been anExpand

Subclinical hepatic encephalopathy impairs daily functioning
TLDR
It is concluded that subclinical hepatic encephalopathy implies impaired daily functioning and warrants attempts at treatment. Expand
The diagnosis and prevalence of subclinical hepatic encephalopathy in apparently healthy, ambulant, non-shunted patients with cirrhosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that 2 out of 3 patients with stable, well compensated cirrhosis were suffering from subclinical hepatic encephalopathy and that impairment of performance rather than verbal skills occurred. Expand
Subclinical hepatic encephalopathy: the diagnostic value of evoked potentials.
TLDR
The use of BAEPs in the detection of subclinical hepatic encephalopathy cannot be recommended, whereas in comatose patientsBAEPs can be useful as a prognostic marker and for follow-up examinations, and the value of SEPs in detecting subclinical liver disease is rather undefined. Expand
Prognostic significance of hepatic encephalopathy in patients with cirrhosis.
TLDR
Hepatic encephalopathy is associated with short survival in cirrhotic patients, and these patients can be classified into several groups with a different prognosis, but the survival probability in every group is lower than that currently expected after liver transplantation. Expand
Hyperintense globus pallidus on T1‐weighted MRI in cirrhotic patients is associated with severity of liver failure
TLDR
It is concluded that the hyperintense globus pallidus is secondary to the severity of the liver disease, and is reversible when liver function returns to normal. Expand
The number connection tests A and B: interindividual variability and use for the assessment of early hepatic encephalopathy.
TLDR
Application of the age-corrected normative data to the test results of the patients with grade I hepatic encephalopathy significantly decreased the sensitivity of the number connection tests for hepaticEncephalopathy compared to widely used age-independent normal ranges, but also increased the specificity. Expand
Partial pressure of ammonia versus ammonia in hepatic encephalopathy
TLDR
Arterial pNH3 correlates more closely than total ammonia with the degree of clinical and electrophysiological abnormalities in HE, and it is suggested that p NH3 might be superior to total ammonia in the pathophysiological evaluation of HE. Expand
Study on the Sternberg Paradigm in Cirrhotic Patients Without Overt Hepatic Encephalopathy
TLDR
Cirrhotics without over encephalopathy, but with NCT or EEG alterations, perform a computerized digit recognition task more slowly and with higher TOs than cirrhotic patients with normal NCT orEEG alterations. Expand
Prevalence of brain atrophy in liver cirrhosis patients with chronic persistent encephalopathy. Evaluation by computed tomography.
TLDR
The presence of brain atrophy in nonalcoholic liver cirrhosis patients with chronic persistent encephalopathy seems to indicate that the chronic exposure to toxins which are involved in the pathogenesis of hepaticEncephalopathy leads to neuronal alterations which develop mainly in the cortex and which can be demonstrated by in vivo imaging only in a long-lasting state of coma. Expand
Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy of the brain in symptomatic and asymptomatic patients with liver cirrhosis.
TLDR
Proton MR spectroscopy allows for the diagnosis of HE and subclinical He, also shows the typical pathological metabolite pattern in patients with cirrhotic livers without subclinical HE, and might be more sensitive than neuropsychological testing. Expand
