Numerous other abnormalities have been described in hepatic encephalopathy, although their relative contribution to the disease state is uncertain. Hepatic encephalopathy Synonyms Portosystemic encephalopathy, hepatic coma, [1] coma hepaticum Micrograph of Alzheimer ensefalopat II astrocytesas may be seen in hepatic encephalopathy.

Subgroup analyses showed no difference in outcomes in the trials evaluating evaluating the prevention or treatment of either overt or minimal hepatic encephalopathy or trials evaluating oral versus intravenous administration We were unable to undertake a meta-analysis of the hepafik trials involving participants evaluating health-related quality of life.

In a small proportion of cases, the ensefalopagi is caused directly by liver failure; this is more likely in acute liver failure. There are various explanations why liver dysfunction or portosystemic shunting might lead to encephalopathy. This page was last edited on 4 Septemberat Heaptik classification of hepatic encephalopathy was ensefalopwti at the World Congress of Gastroenterology in Vienna.

Furthermore, many people with chronic liver disease are malnourished and require adequate protein to maintain a stable body weight. Ruling out other possible causes, blood ammonia levels, electroencephalogramCT scan [2] [3].

Metronidazole, similarly, is less commonly used because prolonged use can cause nerve damagein addition to gastrointestinal side effects.

Are non-absorbable disaccharides associated with beneficial or harmful effects in people with cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy? Our analyses showed L-ornithine L-aspartate might reduce deaths, improve hepatic encephalopathy, and prevent serious side effects compared with placebo or no treatment, but that it had no ensefalopatl beneficial effects when compared with other medicines used to prevent and treat this condition.

A CT scan of the brain may be required to exclude haemorrhage, and if seizure activity is suspected an electroencephalograph EEG study may be performed. The exact pathogenesis of this syndrome is unknown although ammonia is thought to play a key role. In comparison with probiotics, L-ornithine L-aspartate had no effect on mortality RR 1. In the s, several reports enumerated the numerous abnormalities reported previously, and confirmed the previously enunciated theory that metabolic impairment and portosystemic shunting are the underlying mechanism behind hepatic encephalopathy, and that the nitrogen-rich compounds originate from the intestine.

We included participants with cirrhosis who had minimal or overt hepatic encephalopathy or who were at risk for developing hepatic encephalopathy.

The tendon reflexes may be exaggerated, and the plantar reflex may be abnormal, namely extending rather than flexing Babinski’s sign in severe encephalopathy.


In the intermediate stages, a characteristic jerking movement of the limbs is observed asterixis”liver flap” due to its flapping character ; this disappears as the somnolence worsens. L-ornithine L-aspartate has ammonia-lowering properties and may, therefore, benefit people with cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy.

The occurrence of disturbed behaviour in people with jaundice may have been described in antiquity by Hippocrates of Cos ca. If encephalopathy develops in acute liver failure type Aeven in a mild form grade 1—2it indicates that a liver transplant may be required, and transfer to a specialist centre is advised. Average life expectancy less than a year in those with severe disease [1].

It had a beneficial effect on hepatic esnefalopati compared with placebo or no intervention when including all trials RR 0. We assessed bias control using the Cochrane Hepato-Biliary Group domains; we evaluated the risk of publication bias and other small trial effects in regression analyses; conducted subgroup and sensitivity analyses; and performed Trial Sequential Analyses.

The occurrence ensefalopatii hepatic encephalopathy in people with Wilson’s disease hereditary copper accumulation and mushroom poisoning indicates an urgent need for a liver transplant.

Users should refer to the original published version of the material for the full abstract. The initial treatment of HE is based on the principle of reducing the production and absorption of ammonia in the gut through administration of pharmacological agents such as rifaximin and lactulose. Peritonitis Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis Hemoperitoneum Pneumoperitoneum.

Hyponatraemia low sodium level in the blood and hypokalaemia low potassium levels —these are both common in those taking diureticsoften used for the treatment of ascites; furthermore alkalosis decreased acid levelhypoxia insufficient oxygen levelsdehydration. Lactulose lactitol are disaccharides that are not absorbed from the digestive tract. Together with the severity of encephalopathy, these markers have been incorporated into the Child-Pugh score ; this score determines the one- and two-year survival and may assist in a decision to offer liver transplantation.

The length of treatment varied from three to 35 days in the trials testing the intravenous preparation average eight days and from seven to days in those testing the oral preparation average 30 days.
