“Chronic liver disease” consists of a wide range of liver pathologies which include inflammation liver cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma.
Acute liver failure is a loss of liver function that occurs rapidly — in days or weeks — usually in a person who has no pre-existing liver disease.
Liver transplantation or hepatic transplantation is the replacement of a diseased liver with a healthy liver from another person.
Liver dysfunction after sepsis is an independent risk factor for multiple organ dysfunction and sepsis-induced death.
The liver is a major organ in maintaining an appropriate nutritional status in healthy individuals through the metabolism of protein.
It is usually found in association with fatty liver, an early stage of alcoholic liver disease, and may be leading to cirrhosis.
Vascular disorders of the liver are relatively uncommon but frequently result in serious liver disease and portal hypertension.
Portal hypertension is an increase in the blood pressure within a system of veins called the portal venous system.
