  • Coffee and Liver Disease
    • Authors: Manav Wadhawan; Anil C. Anand
      Abstract: Coffee is the most popular beverage in the world. Consumption of coffee has been shown to benefit health in general, and liver health in particular. This article reviews the effects of coffee intake on development and progression of liver disease due to various causes. We also describe the putative mechanisms by which coffee exerts the protective effect. The clinical evidence of benefit of coffee consumption in Hepatitis B and C, as well as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and alcoholic liver disease, has also been presented.

  • Liver Transplantation for Alcohol-Related Liver Disease
    • Authors: Narendra S. Choudhary; Naveen Kumar, Sanjiv Saigal, Rahul Rai, Neeraj Saraf, Arvinder S. Soin
      Abstract: Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is a common indication for liver transplantation. It is a much debated indication for deceased donor liver transplantation due to organ shortage and potential of alcohol relapse after liver transplantation. A six-month abstinence before liver transplantation is required at most centers to decrease chances of alcohol relapse after liver transplantation. However, this rule is not relevant for patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis or severely decompensated patients who are unlikely to survive till 6 months.

  • Delayed Severe Hemobilia Due to Bilio-venous Fistula After Percutaneous
           Transhepatic Biliary Drainage: Treatment With Covered Stent Placement
    • Authors: Kumble S. Madhusudhan; Nihar R. Dash, Adil Afsan, Shivanand Gamanagatti, Deep N. Srivastava, Arun K. Gupta
      Abstract: Biliovenous fistula occurs due to development of a communication between hepatic duct and portal vein branches and is a rare complication of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD). Most of them are self-limiting and only occasionally they need interventional management. Placement of biliary stent graft is a viable option. We present here a case of a 56-year-old male with carcinoma of gall bladder presenting with hemodynamic shock due to severe hemobilia after PTBD and treated successfully by biliary covered stent placement.

  • Acute Liver Failure Caused by Hepatitis A Virus with Dengue Coinfection
    • Authors: Sunil Taneja; Amritangsu Borakokty, Ajay Duseja, Radha Krishan Dhiman, Yogesh Chawla
      Abstract: Hepatitis A (HAV) infection and dengue fever are endemic in developing countries and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Both the infections are commonly seen during the rainy season and are associated with poor sanitation and low socioeconomic status.1 Due to diverse presentation, their coexistence can present a diagnostic dilemma and at times a difficult clinical scenario to manage due to the complicated course of the illness.

  • Hemodynamic Response to Carvedilol is Maintained for Long Periods and
           Leads to Better Clinical Outcome in Cirrhosis: A Prospective Study
    • Authors: Vijendra Kirnake; Anil Arora, Varun Gupta, Praveen Sharma, Vikas Singla, Naresh Bansal, Mohan Goyal, Romesh Chawlani, Ashish Kumar
      Abstract: Non-selective beta-blockers (NSBBs), e.g. propranolol, are recommended for prophylaxis of variceal bleeding in cirrhosis. Carvedilol, a newer NSBB with additional anti-α1-adrenergic activity, is superior to propranolol in reducing portal pressure. Repeated HVPG measurements are required to identify responders to NSBB. We aimed to determine whether a single-time HVPG measurement, using acute-hemodynamic-response-testing, is sufficient to predict long-term response to carvedilol, and whether these responders have better clinical outcome.

  • Dengue Virus Transmission from Living Donor to Recipient in Liver
           Transplantation: A Case Report
    • Authors: Raman K. Gupta; Gaurav Gupta, Vishal K. Chorasiya, Pradyut Bag, Rajeev Shandil, Vikram Bhatia, Manav Wadhawan, Vivek Vij, Ajay Kumar
      Abstract: Many infections are transmitted from a donor to a recipient through organ transplantations. The transmission of dengue virus from a donor to a recipient in liver transplantation is a rare entity, and currently, there is no recommendation for screening this virus prior to transplantation. We report a case of transmission of dengue virus from donor to recipient after liver transplantation. The recipient had a history of multiple admissions for hepatic encephalopathy and ascites. He was admitted in the ICU for 15 days for chronic liver disease, ascites, and acute kidney injury before transplantation.

  • Innovative Approach of Using Esophageal Stent for Refractory Post-Band
           Ligation Esophageal Ulcer Bleed Following Living Donor Liver
    • Authors: Narendra S. Choudhary; Rajesh Puri, Sanjiv Saigal, Neeraj Saraf, Randhir Sud, Arvinder S. Soin
      Abstract: Bleeding from post-banding esophageal ulcers is uncommon. It is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The bleeding from post-banding ulcers is difficult to manage and may be refractory to endotherapy and pharmacological treatment; transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt can be used in such cases. We present a case of refractory post-banding ulcer bleed in a liver transplant recipient, which was managed by placement of removable esophageal metal stent.

           LX-2 Cells
    • Authors: Devaraj Ezhilarasan; Jonathan Evraerts, Sid Brice, Pedro Buc-Calderon, Sivanesan Karthikeyan, Etienne Sokal, Mustapha Najimi
      Abstract: Proliferation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) play pivotal role in the progression of hepatic fibrosis consequent to chronic liver injury. Silibinin (SBN), a flavonoid compound, has shown to possess cell cycle arresting potential against many actively proliferating cancers cell lines. The objective of this study was to evaluate the anti-proliferative and cell cycle arresting properties of SBN in rapidly proliferating human hepatic stellate LX-2 cell line.

  • A Rare Presentation of Leishmaniasis
    • Authors: Ritesh Prajapati; Ashish Kumar, Praveen Sharma, Vikas Singla, Naresh Bansal, Shashi Dhawan, Anil Arora
      Abstract: Leishmaniasis or kala-azar is a protozoan disease that can present as cutaneous, mucocutaneous, visceral, and disseminated disease. In India, it is usually localized in distinct areas of Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, and parts of Eastern Uttar Pradesh. Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) involves the visceral organs, mainly the liver, the spleen and bone marrow. VL is characterized by prolonged fever, massive splenomegaly, weight loss, progressive anemia, pancytopenia, and hypergammaglobulinemia, and can be complicated by serious infections.

  • Liver Transplantation in India: At the Crossroads
    • Authors: Sanjay Nagral; Aditya Nanavati, Aabha Nagral
      Pages: 329 - 340
      Abstract: As the liver transplant journey in India reaches substantial numbers and suggests quality technical expertise, it is time to dispassionately look at the big picture, identify problems, and consider corrective measures for the future. Several features characterize the current scenario. Although the proportion of deceased donor liver transplants is increasing, besides major regional imbalances, the activity is heavily loaded in favor of the private sector and live donor transplants. The high costs of the procedure, the poor participation of public hospitals, the lack of a national registry, and outcomes reporting are issues of concern.

      Abstract: This, one-of-its kind book, is an excellent and timely state-of-the-art review of Hepatitis C in December 2015. Though billed as ‘A Complete Guide for Patients and Families’, this book is actually a complete guide to the student internist, the family physician, other professionals caring for hepatitis C patients and even the non-hepatologist caring for patients who suffer from hepatitis C, among other problems. Its simple, easy-to-follow language and uncluttered syntax makes it the ideal companion volume to more comprehensive tomes on hepatitis C and for understanding the torrent of literature gushing out of the hepatitis C pipeline that is in flood since 2011.

    • Authors: Clement Korenbaum; Philippe Barthelemy, Alina Onea, Pierre Salze, Jean-Emmanuel Kurtz
      Abstract: Most patients with testicular seminoma have been treated with a curative intent for decades. Second cancers after radiotherapy for testicular seminoma before 1990 are a growing issue, and are related to previous generation of dose planning and delineating strategies. Among those cancers, hepatocellular carcinoma is an extremely rare occurrence, especially when affecting patients with healthy, noncirrhotic liver. Here, we describe such a case in a patient of our institution, and subsequently review the relevant literature and large epidemiologic studies.

      Abstract: Patients with advanced cirrhosis have a high to develop extrahepatic organ failures. Renal failure is common in patients with advanced cirrhosis and hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) represents the most life-threatening type of renal failure in these patients.1 Until 30 years ago, no effective treatment of HRS was available and short-term mortality was almost 100% in these patients.2 With the advent of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT), HRS became an indication to OLT since it was shown that HRS resolved in most of the liver transplant recipients with a deep impact on survival.

  • Safety of Ascitic Paracentesis in Patients with Budd-Chiari Syndrome on
           Oral Anticoagulation and Elevated International Normalized Ratio
    • Authors: Harshad Devarbhavi; Arvind R. Murali
      First page: 310
      Abstract: Anticoagulation is the standard of care in patients with Budd-Chiari Syndrome (BCS). Ascites is a common symptom in patients with BCS. Often such patients require paracentesis while taking oral anticoagulation concurrently. It is unclear whether paracentesis leads to increased bleeding in such patients or whether anticoagulation has to be temporarily suspended. We describe our experience with paracentesis in patients with BCS taking oral anticoagulation.

  • Indications of Liver Biopsy in the Era of Noninvasive Assessment of Liver
    • Authors: Deepak Amarapurkar; Anjali Amarapurkar
      First page: 314
      Abstract: Liver biopsy (LB) has been used as diagnostic modality in liver diseases (LD). Over last two decades, there has been remarkable improvement in understanding of natural history, molecular diagnostics of viral hepatitis, genetic of LD, and also limitations of LB. There is current trend in avoiding LB in the management of various LDs.

      Abstract: Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) provides a non-invasive ‘window’ on biochemical processes within the body. Its use is no longer restricted to the field of research, with applications in clinical practice increasingly common. MRS can be conducted at high magnetic field strengths (typically 11–14T) on body fluids, cell extracts and tissue samples, with new developments in whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allowing clinical MRS at the end of a standard MRI examination, obtaining functional information in addition to anatomical information.

  • Primary Liver Sinusoidal Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Presenting as Acute Liver
    • Authors: Aabha Nagral; Ajay Jhaveri, Vilesh Kalthoonical, Ganapathi Bhat, Pravin Mahajan, Anita Borges
      First page: 341
      Abstract: We describe a case of a middle-aged woman, who presented to us with fever, anorexia, abdominal distension from a massive hepatomegaly, low hemoglobin, and acute liver failure. A liver biopsy revealed B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma predominantly in the sinusoids with CD10, CD20, and Bcl-2 positive on immunohistochemistry. She initially responded well to chemotherapy but succumbed 6 months later to the recurrence of disease. Sinusoidal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the liver should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a patient with large hepatomegaly presenting with acute liver failure.

  • Liver Transplantation After Bone Marrow Transplantation for End Stage
           Liver Disease with Severe Hepatopulmonary Syndrome in Dyskeratosis
           Congenita: A Literature First
    • Authors: Shyam Sunder Mahansaria; Senthil Kumar, Kishore G.S. Bharathy, Sachin Kumar, Viniyendra Pamecha
      First page: 344
      Abstract: Dyskeratosis congenita is a multisystem genetic disorder. Although hepatic involvement is reported in about 7% of patients with dyskeratosis congenita, it is not well characterized and often attributed to hemochromatosis from frequent blood transfusions. A few case reports describe cirrhosis and hepatic cell necrosis in affected individuals in autosomal dominant pedigrees. Bone marrow failure and malignancies are the principal causes of death in dyskeratosis congenita. We describe the first case of living donor liver transplantation, in dyskeratosis congenita for decompensated cirrhosis with portal hypertension.

      First page: 349
      Abstract: A 55-year-old male was admitted to a community hospital with right upper quadrant pain and fever for two weeks. Ultrasonography showed a large right lobe liver abscess (volume 350mm3), for which he received intravenous injection metronidazole 800mg thrice daily with injection ceftriaxone 1g twice daily for seven days without any improvement. A percutaneous drain was placed successfully in the liver abscess and drained creamy pus. One week later, the percutaneous catheter was removed after improvement of symptoms.

      Abstract: Liver transplant recipients are twice as prone to develop malignancies as compared to the general population.1–4 The risk is most in patients transplanted for alcohol-related liver disease or primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).3–5 The most common malignancies in this population include dermatological cancers, post-transplantation lymphoproliferative disease and gastrointestinal, lung, oropharyngeal and gynecological solid tumors.
