  • The emergency medicine evaluation and management of the patient with cirrhosis. [Review]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Cirrhosis is a common condition in the U.S. and leads to several deadly complications. The disease develops from liver fibrosis, elevating portal pressures and modifying patient hemodynamics. Cirrhosis results in significant anatomic and physiologic modifications involving the gastrointestinal, cardiopulmonary, neurologic, renal, immunologic, and hematologic systems. The disease can be divided into compensated and decompensated states, with decompensation associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Complications include variceal hemorrhage, ascites, increased risk of bacterial infection, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP), hepatic encephalopathy, hepatorenal syndrome, hepatopulmonary syndrome, umbilical hernia, and hepatic hydrothorax. Resuscitation including airway and circulation measures is paramount in these patients, and several new techniques are offered for the approach to intubation and resuscitation for patients with severe cirrhosis.Decompensating cirrhotics may require extensive resuscitation, and knowledge of the evaluation and management of complications associated with cirrhosis can improve care for patients with severe liver disease.
  • Uniparental disomy and prenatal phenotype: Two case reports and review. [Case Reports]
  • MMedicine (Baltimore) 2017; 96(45):e8474

  • CONCLUSIONS: UPD cases are rare and the phenotypes are different, which depend on the origin and affected chromosomal part. If a fetus shows multiple anomalies that cannot be attributed to a common aneuploidy or a genetic syndrome, or manifests some features possibly related to an UPD syndrome, such as detection of sSMC, SNP-array should be considered.
