AIM Indocyanine green retention rate at 15 min (ICGR15) is a frequently used indicator of liver function. Herein, clinicopathological characteristics of cirrhotic patients with normal ICGR15 value ( 10% (Group C, n = 296). Background characteristics and surgical outcomes were compared between groups. Functional liver volume (FLV) was computed using total liver volume and signal intensity ratio. Liver parenchymal cell volume ratio was measured in non-cancerous tissue obtained from resected specim...

BACKGROUND Current guidelines have limited consensus on the approach to portal venous thrombosis (PVT) in cirrhotic patients. While there is rising interest in direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) use for PVT, current evidence is limited by small sample size and lack of comparisons to traditional anticoagulants. Thus, a network meta-analysis was conducted to compare the use of DOACs with traditional anticoagulants. METHODS Medline and Embase were searched for articles about anticoagulation use in ...

To investigate the efficacy of sequential apatinib treatment in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) refractory to sorafenib–transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). This respective study was conducted on 95 consecutive patients with sorafenib–TACE-refractory unresectable HCC in our center from January 2014 to December 2019. According to the response to sorafenib–TACE treatment and the subsequent management, the eligible patients were assigned into three groups: sorafenib–TAC...

BACKGROUND The efficacy and safety of insulin sensitizer in Asians with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) remain elusive. AIMS The double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial was conducted aiming to investigate the efficacy and safety of pioglitazone in NASH patients. METHODS A total of 90 NASH patients (66 males, age = 44.1 ± 12.7 years) were prospectively randomized into oral pioglitazone 30 mg/day (Arm A) or placebo (Arm B) for 24 weeks. The primary endpoint was the efficacy of piog...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Whether herbal and dietary supplements (HDS) are safer than Western conventional drugs is controversial. The aim of this study was to explore the characteristics and risk factors for HDS-induced liver injury (HILI) in Taiwan. METHODS This is a 9-year multi-center prospective study conducted in Taiwan from 2011 to 2019. Patients with HILI were compared to those with conventional drug-induced liver injury (CILI). RESULTS A total of 1,297 patients were enrolled, of whom 285 (22....

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Associations between the disturbances in glucose homeostasis and prognosis in patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) remain unclear. This study was conducted to investigate the clinical characteristics of disturbances in glucose homeostasis and their associations with 90-day mortality in patients with HBV-related ACLF. METHODS Ninety-six patients with HBV-related ACLF without pre-existing diabetes were prospectively included. Glucos...

BACKGROUND AND AIM The long-term outcome of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection among patients dually infected with HBV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) remains unclear. We aimed to investigate the long-term liver outcomes of HBV/HCV-coinfected patients after antiviral therapy. METHODS A total of 11,359 chronically HCV-infected patients with interferon-based therapy were registered in a nationwide Taiwanese Chronic Hepatitis C Cohort. A propensity score matched (PSM) cohort of HCV mono-infected (n = 70...
