Canadian Waiting Algorithm in predicting

The model for end stage liver disease (MELD) and Child –
Turcotte – Pugh (CTP) scores are important predictors for
survival post liver transplantation. The objective of this
study was to compare the utility of MELD and CTP score
with Canadian Waitlisting Algorithm in Transplantation
(CanWAIT) status for predicting 90 day survival after LT.

Conclusion: CanWAIT status stratifies LT patients better and
predicts short term outcome more accurately than MELD or
CTP scores and should not be replaced by MELD or CTP
scores. This observation should be confirmed by a
prospective and multicenter study in Canada

We report a case of new interferon-associated ocular complication during

treatment with combination of pegylated interferon plus ribavirin for chronic

hepatitis C infection. Our patient developed choroidal neovascularization in

addition to the classic interferon associated retinopathy. Choroidal

neovascularization has not been reported before in association with interferon

induced retinopathy. We describe our management to control the ocular

symptoms and the retinal lesions with one year follow up. We also provide

literature report on the natural history, the pathophysiology and the variable

characteristics of interferon associated retinopathy versus hepatitis C related

ophthalmopathy.

The aim of this study was to report our experience, comparing and
evaluating the effectiveness, safety, indications and
obstacles of percutaneous placement of gastrostomy and
gastrojejunostomy catheters by fluoroscopic (percutaneous
fluoroscopic gastrostomy – PFG) and endoscopic
(percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy – PEG) techniques.

Our conclusion was that both PFG and PEG are successful, safe
and effective techniques for the installment of catheters in
the stomach and jejunum. PFG technique appears to have
no major complication and is capable of overcoming some
of the obstacles that may render PEG unsuccessful.

The objective of this study is to report our experience with
percutaneous drainage of hepatic abscesses.

We carried a retrospective study in patients with hepatic abscesses
seen in the institutions of Toronto General Hospital in
Toronto Canada and in King Abdulaziz University Hospital,
Jeddah Saudi Arabia over a seven years period.

The results show complete resolution in 20 out of 22 (91%)
patients. Pleural effusion developed in 4 (18%) patients.
Death occurred in 2 (9%) patients with multiple abscesses
on top of liver malignancy. Procedural related surgical
intervention was not required.

We concluded that Radiologically guided percutaneous drainage of
hepatic abscesses remains the gold standard approach to
liver abscesses. This is in agreement with studies of other
authors.
