How do we treat this?
By Hamed S. on 15. March 2017 for Portal Hypertension

Good way of classifying the causes but missed out on defining the pressure (>5 mmHg) and potential treatment options such as propranolol, TIPS etc.... Also what about the potential complications, which would have been perfect to discuss here ie variceal bleeds

 
What about Focal Nodular Hyperplasia
By Hamed S. on 15. March 2017 for Benign Liver Tumors

Missed another important benign tumour of the liver that would have been worthwhile covering

 
What about other drugs?
By Hamed S. on 15. March 2017 for Drug Induced Liver Disease & Acetaminophen Toxicity

It would have been great to list the most common agents that could potentially lead to liver toxicity aside from paracetamol, incl phenytoin, statins, amiodarone, methotrexate. Also not sure if this would be discussed in the Emergency Medicine talks but actually working up the patient and what to do from a monitoring point of view once a diagnosis of paracetamol overdose would have been really helpful. It would have been worth noting that acetylcysteine most efficacious within 8 to 10 hours after ingestion of paracetamol.

 
IV alpha1-antiprotease
By Hamed S. on 15. March 2017 for Alpha-1 Anti-Trypsin Deficiency

It would have been good to discuss the use IV arantiprotease for the management of this condition. Moreover a little bit of discussion about the genetics of this conditions how it influences the disease presentation and natural history.
