  • AASLD/EASL Symposium: Non-invasive Assessment of Liver Disease

    Contains 5 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/23/2017

    AASLD's AASLD/EASL Symposium presented at The Liver Meeting® 2017.

    The Symposium will provide a broad overview on the diversity of noninvasive diagnostic approaches for assessing chronic liver disease in the U.S. and Europe. Experts will discuss the role and interpretation of noninvasive diagnostic test strategies in assessing the severity of disease associated with NAFLD, cirrhosis, and portal hypertension. These lectures — in conjunction with a panel discussion — will benefit all healthcare professionals using these novel tools in their clinical practice.

  • Basic Research Workshop: A New Era of Gene Editing for Liver Disease

    Product not yet rated Contains 8 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/22/2017

    AASLD's Basic Research Workshop presented at The Liver Meeting® 2017.

    The future is bright for the continued development of novel gene therapy approaches in liver disease. But, a deeper understanding of off-target effects and immune responses generated in host cells by gene carriers is needed to fully realize their potential. This workshop will provide an overview of current and emerging therapeutic gene editing strategies for liver diseases. Speakers will discuss how novel genome editing techniques and designer nucleases offer the ability to carry out sophisticated gene function studies in vivo. In addition, the workshop will look at how the refinement of delivery systems is paving the way for the translation of gene therapy from bench to bedside.

  • Thomas E. Starzl Transplant SOA: Equity in Access to Organ Allocation

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/22/2017

    AASLD's State-of-the-Art Lectures presented at The Liver Meeting® 2017.

    As the U.S. continues to face disparities in organ allocation — due to an imbalance of supply and demand — patients who are on the waitlist for liver transplantation are increasingly at risk. This session will discuss the importance of geographic disparities in liver transplantation as well as various strategies proposed to address this critical issue in healthcare.

  • Clinical Practice SIG: Best Practices in Clinical Hepatology

    Contains 3 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/22/2017

    AASLD's Special Interest Group (SIG) Sessions presented at The Liver Meeting® 2017.

    Identifying best practices in the difficult management of patients with liver disease in the community outpatient setting is an important topic in clinical hepatology. It is particularly important to look at the approach to patients with non-alcoholic liver disease that are not  candidates for research studies, the management of portal hypertension and portal vein thrombosis, and outpatient intervention and monitoring of patients with cirrhosis and renal insufficiency. The emphasis of this program is to provide tools for community practitioners to develop management strategies for better patient outcomes. Speakers will review a multidisciplinary approach to these problems and demonstrate the benefit of working in a team that — according to the problem in question — may include surgeons, oncologists, hematologists, nephrologists, interventional radiologists and nutrition experts.

  • Cholestatic and Biliary Diseases SIG: Novel Treatment Approached to Cholestatic Liver Diseases: Theory and Practice

    Product not yet rated Contains 9 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/22/2017

    AASLD's Special Interest Group (SIG) Sessions presented at The Liver Meeting® 2017.

    Recently there is an increased interest and effort in targeting novel pathways to treat cholestatic liver diseases.  Up-to-date science is needed on the new therapeutic targets and the early experiences (successes and failures) of clinical trials to foster discussion of these various approaches and identify priorities for future clinical trials. Presentations in this program will be arranged in pairs with the first explaining the science behind why a specific pathway has good targets for treating cholestatic liver disease, followed by a summary of recent clinical trial and other descriptive experiences targeting these pathways. Further discussion after the paired talks will address why drugs did or did not perform as expected in humans, along with planning priorities for future trials.

  • Public Health/Healthcare Delivery SIG: Methods for Conducting Healthare Delivery Research

    Product not yet rated Contains 5 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/22/2017

    AASLD's Special Interest Group (SIG) Sessions presented at The Liver Meeting® 2017.

    Given recent attention to healthcare reform efforts in the U.S., a greater emphasis is being placed on generating and synthesizing evidence to inform policies affecting the clinical practice of hepatology. In turn, this program will review and teach attendees about the most common research designs and analytic methods associated with the conduct of healthcare delivery research. Specifically, the topics of quality improvement methods, behavioral and health economics research, qualitative mixed-methods approaches, and health disparities research will be reviewed and discussed in depth through a series of interactive lectures and panel-based discussions. Examples based on the field of clinical hepatology and liver transplantation, including relevant peer-reviewed publications, will be highlighted.

  • Acute on Chronic Liver Failure SIG: Management of the Critically Ill Cirrhotic Patient: Improving Multidisciplinary Care and Avoiding…

    Contains 10 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/22/2017

    AASLD's Special Interest Group (SIG) Sessions presented at The Liver Meeting® 2017.

    Patients with acute-on-chronic liver failure frequently present to the ICU for care, and the mortality rate for cirrhotic patients requiring ICU approaches 50 percent.  Unique physiologic characteristics in the patient population warrant specialized, multidisciplinary, approaches to care.  The goal of this program is to further develop dialog between surgeons, hepatologists and intensive care unit teams to better deliver care to this complex patient population by focusing on the complex physiology of chronic liver failure.  In addition, we will devote special attention to areas of controversy in this patient group including initiation of renal replacement therapy, management of alcoholic hepatitis, defining futility and establishing appropriate goals of care.
