Background One of the most widespread cancer-associated death worldwide is Hepatocellular carcinoma. Concerning hepatic malignant tumor staging system known as Barcelona clinic of liver cancer, a superior curative response could be carried out by combined techniques [radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and transarterial chemoembolization (TACE)] for stage B comparing with TACE alone as palliative monotherapy. Objectives To discuss the merging effect of RFA followed by TACE and vice versa on objective ...

OBJECTIVES Patients with severe cirrhotic ascites have poor prognosis, yet individual patient survival varies greatly. Therefore, suitable prognostic models can be helpful in clinical decision making. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the performance of 10 scores in predicting transplant-free survival (TFS) after transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) in severe cirrhotic ascites. METHODS Two hundred eighty consecutive cirrhotic patients with severe ascites undergoin...
Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), formerly known as primary biliary cirrhosis, is an autoimmune, slowly progressive, cholestatic liver disease characterized by nonsuppurative destructive cholangitis, and interlobular bile duct destruction. Necroinflammatory activities of the hepatic parenchyma and limiting plates of milder form along with late liver fibrosis may develop. Serum liver tests include elevated serum alkaline phosphatase along with a positive antimitochondrial antibody (AMA) in nearl...

Objective Liver transplant (LT) is a definitive therapeutic option for patients with chronic liver disease. However, acute kidney injury after LT (post-LT AKI) is a frequent complication that may lead to graft dysfunction and decrease life expectancy. Delay in AKI detection by traditional biomarkers boosted research with new biomarkers for post-LT AKI as neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and syndecan-1. We aim to evaluate associations of intraoperative systemic NGAL and syndecan-...
The recent appearance of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection has led to the publication of the first evidence on gastrointestinal symptoms (GIS), the possible enteric involvement of the virus and the detection of RNA in stool, with its possible implication in the fecal-oral transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We aimed to conduct a systematic review to describe the epidemiological scientific evidence on GIS, enteric involvement and fecal excreti...
BACKGROUND Transjugular liver biopsy (TJLB) and hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) measurement are diagnostic procedures for patients with acute and chronic liver diseases. Technical execution of TJLB and HVPG may be challenging in patients with advanced liver disease. OBJECTIVE We studied consecutive TJLB and HVPG procedures and investigated technical success, complications, quality of biopsies, indications and treatment changes in patients with and without liver cirrhosis. METHODS In the ...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Current guidelines for chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients are to undergo surveillance for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with 6-month ultrasonography. We aimed to compare detection rates of very-early-stage HCC in two groups: group A, undergoing 6-month ultrasonography versus group B, undergoing 6-month ultrasonography alternating with dynamic computed tomography (CT). METHODS This retrospective study assessed 2151 CHB patients under entecavir/tenofovir therapy from 2007 to 2...
