Encefalopatía hepática


Hepatic Encephalopathy
Munoz S. Med Clin N Am 2008; 92: 795–812
"Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a syndrome of neuropsychiatric dysfunction caused by portosystemic venous shunting, with or without intrinsic liver disease. Patients with HE often present with the onset of mental status changes ranging from subtle psychologic abnormalities to profound coma. Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain the mental impairment associated with portosystemic shunting and liver disease. Clinicians diagnosing HE frequently have the opportunity to intervene and reverse severe HE, even hepatic coma. The recent advances in understanding and management of HE are the subject of this article."
