Lactic Acidosis In Fulminant Hepatic Failure: Some Aspects Of Pathogenesis And Prognosis*
Lactic acidosis in fulminant hepatic failure: Some aspects of pathogenesis and prognosis * Author links open overlay panel DavidBihari*** Get rights and content To obtain further evidence of tissue hypoxia in fulminant hepatic failure, we have measured the mixed venous lactate concentration and the acid-base status of 32 patients at the time of their admission, in grade III or IV encephalopathy. The mixed venous lactate was elevated in 26 of the 32 patients (median 5.0 mmol/l, range 0.821.1 mmol/l), and, in 17 patients, this was associated with evidence of a metabolic acidosis. Mixed venous lactate levels correlated inversely with the mean arterial pressure (r = 0.56, P < 0.005), systemic vascular resistance (r = 0.62, P < 0.001) and the oxygen extraction ratio (r = 0.44, P < 0.02). The 17 patients with a raised mixed venous lactate and metabolic acidosis had a significantly reduced systemic vascular resistance and oxygen extraction ratio compared with the other 15 (median systemic vascular resistances 944 and 1710 dynes/cm5/m2, respectively, P < 0.05, median oxygen extraction ratios 19 and 23%, respectively, P < 0.05). Survival was markedly reduced in the patients with hyperlacta
BGS Global Hospital performs successful Liver Transplant to treat Acute Liver Failure Karnatakas largest liver transplant program clocks in 140 liver transplants till date Bangalore, December 7, 2016: BGS Global Hospital, a part of Parkway Pantai,successfully performed a liver transplant saving the life of a 51-year-old patient from Bangalore suffering from acute liver failure caused by anti-tuberculosis medication. His condition was fast deteriorating when he arrived at the hospital. Acute liver failure is loss of liver function that occurs rapidly in days or weeks in a person who has no pre-existing liver disease. It is much less common compared to other liver diseases requiring liver transplantation, such as decompensated cirrhosis of the liver, which develops more slowly. Acute liver failurecauses serious complications, including excessive bleeding and increasing pressure on the brain. Other organs like the heart, lungs and kidneys may also require support in such patients. It is a medical emergency that requires intensive care, ideally in transplant centres. Depending on the cause, acute liver failure can sometimes be reversed with medical treatment. In many situations, though, a liver transplant may be the only cure. A liver transplant was the only option for Manjunath. It took place in late October 2016, andlasted nearly 12 hours including the time to taken to harvest the organ from the donor. A multi-disciplinary team including Dr. Sanjay Govil, Dr. Suresh Raghavaiah Dr. Raghavendra CV (Transplant Surgery team), Dr. Vinit Shah (Hepatologist), a team of intensivists and anesthetists worked on this surgery. Commenting on the case, Dr. Sanjay Govil, Sr. Consultant, HPB & Liver Transplant Surgery said, For patients with acute liver failure, time is of the essence. Transplantation must be performed within days of hospital admission and requires an experienced and dedicated team of doctors including intensivists, hepatologists, transplant surgeons and anesthetists to maintain the patient while awaiting an organ for transplantation. Dr. Suresh Raghavaiah, Consultant, HPB & Multi Organ Transplant Surgery, added that Liver support measures such as plasma exchange to purify blood and remove toxins are particularly useful and in specific instances might permit the liver to recover spontaneously without transplantation. An elective liver transplant patient usually requires about 3 weeks of hospitalization and about 3 months of recovery outside of the hospital. In Manjunath's case, given that he was very sick, he stayed in the hospital for 5 weeks and continues to be on follow up with the doctors. Commenting on the importance of raising awareness for organ donation, Dr. Suresh Raghavaiah, Consultant, HPB &Multi Organ Transplant Surgery, said Mr. Manjunath is alive today only because of the gift of life he received through the generosity of his organ donor. There are more than 400 patients waiting for an organ right now in Karnataka. We need more people to enlist to donate their organs after death to save more lives. Each donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation. There are several factors that have led to the establishment of a robust liver transplant program in BGS Global Hospital. The foremost was the formation of a team comprising of highly skilled liver transplant surgeons, hepatologists, specialized anesthetists and intensive care experts. Dedicated and specially trained nurses form an important part of the team. Equally important are the provision of the best medical equipment available to treat critically ill patients. Notably, BGS Global Hospital is the only hospital in Karnataka with a special dedicated liver ICU where all forms of advanced liver diseases can be managed in a state of the art manner. said Mr. Thomas Mathew, Chief Operating Officer, BGS Global Hospital Bangalore BGS Global Hospital is currently host to the busiest transplant program in Karnataka with over 140 successful Liver transplants. They currently average 3-4 liver transplants a month. They have also successfully managed the most multi-organ transplants in Karnataka including 7 Liver-Kidney and 3 Kidney-Pancreas transplants. BGS Global Hospital has an experienced team performing a high number of living donor Liver Transplants. This year alone, they have performed more than 40 transplants, including 11 living donor liver transplants, with a success rate of over 90%.

Significant Lactic Acidosis With Acute Liver Failure At Presentation In Haemophagocytic-lymphohistiocytosis
The causes of acute liver failure in early infancy require prompt recognition and treatment to improve the prognosis. High serum lactate levels typically lead the clinician to consider mitochondrial or other metabolic disorders. We describe a series of young infants with Haemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) who initially presented with unusually high lactate levels. Retrospective case note analysis of children with a final diagnosis of HLH who had high lactate levels at presentation. We identified 5 infants (M: F 3:2) with a median age of 34 (3-270) days, all presenting with pyrexia, poor feeding, deranged liver function tests and worsening coagulopathy. All had hepatosplenomegaly and ascites detected clinically or by ultrasound examination. Significant lactic acidosis was present early in the illness (median 14.2 (10.5-29.8) mmol/l) despite adequate perfusion and renal function in 4 out of the 5 infants. Extensive investigations for possible metabolic causes did not yield an alternative diagnosis. All were thrombocytopenic (median19,000 (7,000-23,000)/mm3) and had low fibrinogen levels (0.5 (0.5-0.7) g/l). Hyperferritinaemia (32,055 (20,000-180,370) nanogram/ml) and elevated

Causes Of Lactic Acidosis
INTRODUCTION AND DEFINITION Lactate levels greater than 2 mmol/L represent hyperlactatemia, whereas lactic acidosis is generally defined as a serum lactate concentration above 4 mmol/L. Lactic acidosis is the most common cause of metabolic acidosis in hospitalized patients. Although the acidosis is usually associated with an elevated anion gap, moderately increased lactate levels can be observed with a normal anion gap (especially if hypoalbuminemia exists and the anion gap is not appropriately corrected). When lactic acidosis exists as an isolated acid-base disturbance, the arterial pH is reduced. However, other coexisting disorders can raise the pH into the normal range or even generate an elevated pH. (See "Approach to the adult with metabolic acidosis", section on 'Assessment of the serum anion gap' and "Simple and mixed acid-base disorders".) Lactic acidosis occurs when lactic acid production exceeds lactic acid clearance. The increase in lactate production is usually caused by impaired tissue oxygenation, either from decreased oxygen delivery or a defect in mitochondrial oxygen utilization. (See "Approach to the adult with metabolic acidosis".) The pathophysiology and causes

Lactic acidosis is a medical condition characterized by the buildup of lactate (especially L-lactate) in the body, which results in an excessively low pH in the bloodstream. It is a form of metabolic acidosis, in which excessive acid accumulates due to a problem with the body's metabolism of lactic acid. Lactic acidosis is typically the result of an underlying acute or chronic medical condition, medication, or poisoning. The symptoms are generall ...
