|Title:||Liver transplantation rapidly stops cerebral ammonia uptake in fulminant hepatic failure.||Austin Authors:||Glassford, Neil J;Farley, K J;Warrillow, Stephen J ;Bellomo, Rinaldo||Affiliation:||Department of Intensive Care, Austin Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Jun-2011||Publication information:||Critical Care and Resuscitation; 13(2): 113-8||Abstract:||This report describes the effect of liver transplantation on transcerebral ammonia uptake in a case of fulminant hepatic failure. A young woman with fulminant hepatic failure and coma received monitoring of transcerebral ammonia uptake before and after orthotopic liver transplantation. Before liver transplantation, median transcerebral ammonia uptake was 8 µmol/L. After liver transplantation, ammonia uptake decreased to 0 µmol/L. Fulminant hepatic failure is associated with transcerebral ammonia uptake, which is fully and rapidly corrected by liver transplantation.||Gov't Doc #:||21627580||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/11277||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21627580||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Adult
