Endoscopic Band Ligation (EBL) Versus Propranolol for Primary Prophylaxis of Variceal Bleeding

Current guidelines recommend prophylactic treatment with propranolol or endoscopic band ligation (EBL) to prevent variceal bleeding in patients with medium or large varices. However, it is unclear which treatment is more useful in regard to prevention of variceal bleeding as well as safety. In addition, the efficacy and safety of ...

Induction of Immunity Against Measles in Pediatric Liver Transplant Recipients

Eligible children in Group 2 will receive a standard dose (0.5 ml) of MMR vaccine during the first medical visit (V1). The lot number and the expiration date will both be recorded on the patient's case report form (CRF). A serological evaluation 4-8 weeks after MMR will identify children requiring ...

A Randomized Control Trial of Vitamin D Prophylaxis in the Prevention of Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy

Optimizing Vitamin D status during pregnancy it thought to have maternal, fetal, and neonatal benefit. Studies suggest that Vitamin D acts well beyond its most commonly thought of role in establishing calcium homeostasis and maintaining maternal and neonatal skeletal integrity. Vitamin D has also been found to modulate the maternal ...

Rifaximin Reduces the Complications of Decompensated Cirrhosis: a Randomized Controlled Trial

Cirrhotic patients are predisposed to intestinal dysmotility, bacterial overgrowth, and increased intestinal permeability all leading to an increase in bacterial translocation and increased endotoxemia. Cirrhotics with bacterial translocation and endotoxemia manifest hemodynamic derangement with lower systemic vascular resistance, higher cardiac output, and lower mean arterial pressure. Moreover, endotoxins may increase ...

The Effect of Phrenic Nerve Block on Postoperative Shoulder Pain in Patients for Liver Resection.

Background Patients undergoing both laparoscopic and open hepatic surgery often experience shoulder pain in the postoperative period, mostly on the right side. The mechanism behind referral of pain from surgical sites to the ipsilateral (same side) shoulder is not fully understood. It has been stated, that the sharing of cervical ...

Effects of Empagliflozin on Liver Fat Content Energy Metabolism and Body Composition in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes

In this multicentre, prospective, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized, 2-arm parallel, interventional pilot study HCL and intramyocellular lipids (IMCL) will be quantified with 1H magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy. Hepatic ATP and inorganic phosphate (Pi) concentrations will be assessed with 31P MR spectroscopy (1). Whole-body and hepatic insulin sensitivity and metabolic flexibility will ...

Evaluating in Cirrhotics With Refractory Vasoplegia the Effect of Methylene Blue

Mortality rates associated septic shock remains unacceptably high, around 20-50%, with refractory hypotension in half of these patients. Widespread vasodilatation involves the activation of the soluble intracellular enzyme guanylate cyclase (GC) by nitric oxide (NO), resulting in the production of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). Initially discovered as an endothelium-derived relaxing ...

Study of Ezetimibe for Chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection in Liver Transplant Candidates (EZE-2)

Infection by hepatitis C virus (HCV) affects more than 170 million people in the World and 80.000 in Chile. It causes more deaths than HIV infection in the US and is a leading cause of liver transplantation in Chile. Even though treatments are evolving with new direct antiviral agents (DAAs) ...
