Endoscopic Band Ligation (EBL) Versus Endoscopic Band Ligation and Propranolol for the Prevention of Variceal Rebleeding

Both propranolol and endoscopic band ligation (EBL) are effective for prevention of variceal rebleeding. Recently several studies compared the efficacy of EBL alone and with a combination of propranolol and EBL. However, the results of recent studies showed discrepancy. This study is performed to compare the efficacy and safety of ...

Effect of Liraglutide on Fatty Liver Content and Lipoprotein Metabolism

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is commonly associated with obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. NAFLD, in patients with type 2 diabetes, has been shown to be associated with lipid abnormalities (such as hypertriglyceridemia and decreased HDL-cholesterol) and increased cardiovascular risk. Such lipid abnormalities (hypertriglyceridemia and decreased HDL-cholesterol) are ...

The Effect of Carvedilol VS Endoscopic Therapy in Primary Prophylaxis of High-risk Esophageal Gastric Variceal Bleeding

The study is a randomized controlled trial. Patients randomly enter into two treatment groups: 1)the Carvedilol group and 2)the endoscopy group. Treatment allocation is by block randomization, with an two-to-one ratio for Carvedilol and endoscopy. The results are concealed in opaque envelopes. The dose of Carvedilol is titrated according to ...

The Effect of Carvedilol Vs Propranolol in Cirrhotic Patients With Variceal Bleeding

The study is a randomized controlled trial. Patients randomly enter into two treatment groups: 1)the Carvedilol group and 2)the Propranolol group. Treatment allocation is by block randomization, with an equal number for Carvedilol and Propranolol. The results are concealed in opaque envelopes. The dose of non-selective β-blocker(NSBB) is titrated according ...

Rifaximin Versus Lactulose in Renal Failure

The purpose of this study is to evaluate patients with cirrhosis of the liver and renal failure and determine if the administration of rifaximin as compared to lactulose is associated with less frequent and/or slower progression to severe hepatic encephalopathy. If one is associated with lower blood ammonia levels. And, ...

Randomized Comparison of Two Albumin Administration Schedules for Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis (SBP)

Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP), infection of the peritoneal fluid(ascites) without evidence of a surgically treatable source, is a common and frequently fatal complication of patients with endstage hepatic cirrhosis. It originates with the passage of bacteria from the intestinal lumen to the systemic circulation and then to the ascitic fluid. ...

Transfusion Requirements in Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleeding

HYPOTHESIS At the present time there does not exist established criteria to decide when it is necessary a blood transfusion in a patient with digestive hemorrhage, neither which should be the red cells concentrates (RBC) amount that the most of the patients will need. In clinical studies made in critical ...

Placebo Controlled Study Using Lovaza as Treatment for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Lovaza is the only fish oil supplement approved by the FDA. It is available by prescription for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia (> 500 mg/dl). The primary mechanism appears to be a reduction in hepatic production of triglycerides. Also decreases the hepatic production of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL). There also ...
