Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) in Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis(NASH). A Pilot Study

Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), a severe form of fatty liver disease, is highly prevalent and can lead to cirrhosis, liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. It is strongly associated with obesity and the metabolic syndrome. The impact of the gut microbiota on obesity and the metabolic syndrome is potentially large and increasing ...


Incidence of Intracranial Hypertension During Liver Transplantation Estimated by Non-invasive Ultrasound Methods.

Acute or chronic liver failure (fulminant hepatitis or advanced cirrhosis) disrupts brain physiology. Beyond classical hepatic encephalopathy, intracranial hypertension may occur.During liver transplantation (LT) surgery, many factors can lead to cerebral assault. In addition, intracranial hypertension measured with invasive methods has been described in certain phases of LT, especially at ...

Protective Effects of Dexmedetomidine on Myocardial Injury During Liver Transplantation

Liver transplantation surgery may lead to myocardial injury. Dexmedetomidine, a highly specific 2-adrenoeptor agonist, has sedative and analgesic properties without significant respiratory depression at the clinically approved dosage. Some investigations indicated that dexmedetomidine was able to protect the myocardium via improving the activity of Na+-K+-adenosine triphosphate enzyme and Ca2+-adenosine triphosphate, ...

HOPE for Human Extended Criteria and Donation After Brain Death Donor (ECD-DBD) Liver Allografts

The present RCT comprises two groups, a perfusion (group 1; HOPE) and a control conventional cold storage (group 2; CCS) group. Patients with proven written informed consent on waiting list for orthotopic liver transplantation will be recruited. Randomization is performed with an online randomizing tool for clinical trials ( at ...

Phase N/A

Vancomycin Treatment in Recurrent PSC in Liver Transplant Patients

The purpose of the study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of oral vancomycin in patients with recurrent Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) after liver transplantation. The primary endpoint is looking at the effect of the drug on liver function tests, an important surrogate of PSC disease activity at 12 ...

Phase N/A

Liver Transplantation and Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal liver metastases (CLM) are currently considered an absolute contraindication for liver transplantation (Lt) although Lt for other primary and secondary liver malignancies show excellent outcome in selected patients. Before 1995, several Lts for CLM were performed, but the outcome was poor (18% 5-year survival) and Lt for CLM was ...


Evolution and Clinical Outcomes in Patients Undergoing Liver Transplantation

This study was carried out at the Alfa Institute of Gastroenterology, Hospital of Clinics, Universidade Federal of Minas Gerais (UFMG). The research protocol was approved by the UFMG Ethics Committee. Patients with indication for liver transplantation, aged over 20 years who regularly attended the Liver Outpatient Transplant Clinic were included ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Whey Protein Consumption by Patients Waiting for Liver Transplantation

A randomized, double-blind, intervention study in which patients are randomly assigned to receive packages of 20g of whey protein (WP) or casein (CA) to take twice a day (20g in the morning and 20g at night), as a supplement, during 15 days. They are monitored weekly by calls. Regular usual ...

Phase N/A

Liver Protection of RIPC in Pediatric Living Donor Liver Transplantation

Pediatric liver transplantation remains the major therapeutic strategy for pediatric biliary atresia patients. With almost 60 years of improvements and refinements in surgical techniques and perioperative management standards, liver transplantation is gaining popularity and gradually turns out to be the only curative treatment option for patients with irrevocable liver failure, ...

Phase N/A

Intermittent Portal and Graft Purge in Living Donor Liver Transplantation

Patients are subjected to living donor liver transplantation. In this type of grafts, cold ischemia time is minimal and the graft contents of preservative solution are less than cadaveric grafts. The investigators in the current research use HTC as a preservative solution. These factors justified the possibility of purging the ...
