Abstract null null Background & Aims null The association between sarcopenia and prognosis in patients with cirrhosis remains to be determined. In this study, we aimed to quantify the association between sarcopenia and the risk of mortality in patients with cirrhosis, by sex, underlying liver disease etiology, and severity of hepatic dysfunction. null null null Methods null PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE, and major scientific conference sessions were searched without language restriction through...

Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) is a serious complication of cirrhosis with high morbidity and mortality rates. Recently, the definition of HRS type 1 has been updated and is now called HRS-AKI. This new definition reduces the risk of delaying HRS treatment and eliminates the need to establish a minimum creatinine cut-off for the diagnosis of HRS-AKI. From a pathophysiological point of view, newly identified mechanisms involved in the development of HRS are related to the inflammatory response, condi...

Resumen Introduccion y objetivos La estadificacion de la fibrosis en pacientes con enfermedad por higado graso no alcoholico (EHGNA) se realiza aplicando distintos algoritmos. Sin embargo, hay pocos reportes de como se utilizan en la vida real. Nuestro objetivo fue estimar la proporcion de pacientes con EHGNA que teniendo riesgo indeterminado o alto de fibrosis segun scores no-invasivos se someten a estudios adicionales de estadificacion. Materiales y metodos Estudio de corte transversal multice...

Abstract Aims Telemedicine between healthcare providers could be useful for improving access to hepatology consultations, which is challenging in some regions. The primary objective of this study was to estimate the proportion of consultations that were resolved through a telemedicine program. Additionally, we evaluated patient satisfaction with this strategy. Methods Consecutive telemedicine consultations made by non-hepatologist healthcare providers from different regions of Argentina to a spe...

BACKGROUND: Cystatin C (CysC) is an early biomarker of renal dysfunction scarcely studied in patients awaiting liver transplantation (LT). Sarcopenia is frequent in cirrhosis and impacts prognosis. We aimed to assess the capability of these factors to predict survival and acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) in patients awaiting LT, as well as early post-LT outcomes. METHODS: Single-center study that included all cirrhotic patients listed for LT between 2014 and 2017. Competing risk regression ...

Portal hypertension is defined as increased pressure in the portal venous system. The most common cause of portal hypertension is cirrhosis. In this setting, there is an increase in intrahepatic resistance leading to an increase in portal pressure. By increasing portal blood flow, splanchnic vasodilation further aggravates portal hypertension. New pathogenic pathways are being established which might result in new therapeutic strategies. The presence of varices at endoscopy and/or other abdomina...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate the effect of acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) on patients' 1-year post-liver transplant (LT) survival. In addition, we evaluated the effect of ACLF on the development of post-LT chronic kidney disease (CKD) and early allograft dysfunction (EAD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort of patients who underwent transplantation from 2010 to 2016 was studied. EASL-CLIF's definition of ACLF was used. The risk of post-LT death, CKD, and EAD was estimated wi...
