  • Can Testing the Impact of Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy on Driving Skills
           be Prolific to Translate Research to Real Life Clinical Medicine'
    • Authors: Sunil Taneja; Radha K. Dhiman
      Pages: 1 - 2
      Abstract: Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is considered a continuum of spectrum of HE. As the liver disease progresses, the abnormalities in central nervous function with impairment in attention, psychomotor speed, visuo-spatial perception and delayed information processing start disquieting the patient without any obvious clinical signs of HE. This cognitive impairment is so subtle to be picked up by the routine neurological clinical examination and requires specialized tests for diagnosis, hence unless specifically looked for will be missed in the outpatient clinic.

      Abstract: Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) represents a life-threatening form of renal failure in patients with decompensated cirrhosis. It occurs in 18% of patients with decompensated cirrhosis annually.1 Terlipressin, along with volume expansion-using albumin, is one of the most effective forms of therapy, leading to a reversal in about a third of cases. Baseline serum creatinine is the strongest predictor of reversal of HRS. Patients with serum creatinine

  • Enucleation Sign: A Computed Tomographic Appearance of Ruptured
           Hepatocellular Carcinoma
    • Authors: Manphool Singhal; Upasna Sinha, Naveen Kalra, Ajay Duseja, Niranjan Khandelwal
      Abstract: Rupture of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a catastrophic complication, which carries high mortality. We report a case of spontaneous rupture of HCC, diagnosis of which was considered on clinical presentation and confirmed on computed tomographic (CT) scan. On CT scan, characteristic ‘enucleation sign’ was observed on arterial phase imaging, where a hypervascular peripheral mass showing central necrosis was seen protruding from liver surface with discontinuity of hepatic parenchyma associated with high attenuation ascites.

      Abstract: “No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to go there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of life.”1 “Those who have the strength and the love to sit with the dying patient in the silence that goes beyond words will know that this moment is neither frightening nor painful but a peaceful cessation of the functioning of the body.”2 “If you don’t know how to die, don’t worry.

    • Authors: Munira Jahan; Md Asadul Islam, Sheikh Mohammad Fazle Akbar, Kazuaki Takahashi, Shahina Tabassum, Atiar Rahman, Md Atiqul Haque, Joly Biswas, Shunji Mishiro, Mamun Al-Mahtab
      Abstract: To avoid further transmission of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, blood is tested for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) before transfusion. However, post-transfusion hepatitis B has been detected in clinics after transfusion of HBsAg-negative blood. The study presented here was undertaken to assess if HBsAg-negative blood is free from HBV or not.

  • Iatrogenic Cushing Syndrome from Interaction Between Ritonavir and Oral
           Budesonide During Direct Acting Antiviral Hepatitis C Therapy
    • Authors: Sern Wei Yeoh
      Abstract: Direct acting antiviral (DAA) regimens containing ritonavir have been developed to treat hepatitis C, with fewer side effects than that by interferon-based regimens. However prescribers must be aware of drug–drug interactions. There are multiple reports of iatrogenic Cushing syndrome (CS) caused by ritonavir, when used to treat human immunodeficiency virus, increasing the bioavailability of exogenous steroids by inhibiting cytochrome p450 enzymes in the liver and gut wall and thus reducing steroid metabolism.

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma Presenting as Dyspnea at Rest due to Innumerable
           Lung Metastasis
    • Authors: Naveen Kumar; Narendra Singh Choudhary, Neeraj Saraf, Sanjiv Saigal
      Abstract: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) the most common primary tumor of the liver usually develops in the setting of chronic liver disease. The presentation is usually due to worsening of chronic liver disease or being detected incidentally on imaging. Rarely metastasis to distant organ becomes the presentation. The authors describe a case of a 70-year-old woman who presented with dyspnea of 2 weeks duration. She was diagnosed as having HCC and extensive multiple pulmonary metastases. She was symptomatic only for the pulmonary metastasis with only 2 lesions in the liver.

  • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

      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.

  • “Hockey Stick” may Strike Back: Hepatocellular Carcinoma on
           Noncirrhotic Liver as a Late Toxicity of Lombo-Aortic Radiotherapy for
           Seminoma. A Review Triggered by an Unusual Case
    • 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.

  • Multiplex Reverse Transcriptase-PCR for Simultaneous Detection of
           Hepatitis B, C, and E Virus
    • Authors: Gunjan Garg; Deepak Kumar, Mohammad Asim, Syed Akhtar Husain, Bhudev C. Das, Premashis Kar
      Abstract: The hepatitis B virus (HBV), HCV, and HEV may occur as singly or concurrently in patients of different kind of liver disease. The rapid, reliable, and cost-effective screening of these pathogens is required for the large epidemiological studies. Therefore, a study has been planned to develop a multiplex Reverse Transcriptase-PCR assay which can be used for the screening of maximum number of pathogens at a time.
