Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition the team of pediatric gastroenterologists, hepatologists, dietitians, clinicians and nurses is dedicated to helping children with common or complex gastrointestinal, liver and nutritional problems. The goals of the Gastroenterology Division are to provide outstanding medical care to persons with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver, to train gastroenterology and to perform cutting-edge biomedical research to improve our understanding of digestive diseases.
An inflammatory condition of the liver is Hepatitis. It’s commonly caused by a viral infection,there are other possible causes of Hepatitis. These include auto immune hepatitis and hepatitis that occurs as a secondary result of medications, drugs, toxins, and alcohol. When your body makes antibodies against your liver tissue Autoimmune hepatitis occurs. Viral infections of the liver that are classified include hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E. Taking a sample of tissue from your liver is an invasive procedure called liver biopsy which allows your doctor to determine how infection or inflammation has affected your liver. In the early treatment of autoimmune hepatitis corticosteroids, like prednisone or budesonide, are extremely important.
The liver is responsible for many critical functions within the body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons. If it becomes diseased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body. There are over 100 different forms of liver disease that affect men, women and children. These diseases include cirrhosis, alcohol abuse, hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E, Epstein Barr virus (infectious mononucleosis), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and iron overload (hemochromatosis). The main symptoms of liver imbalance include weakness and fatigue, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, and yellow discolouration of the skin (jaundice)
Liver imaging is basically for precise diagnosing biliary tract issue and is imperative for identifying liver injuries or damage and patients with a suspected malignancy is important because the liver is the common site of metastatic spread and those who are at the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma.
Gastrointestinal immunology deals with the immune reaction of the gastrointestinal tract to the external stimulus. Failure in responding is important as it deals with the function of gastrointestinal tract system. This field of science is rendering a new scope in development in terms of research. The latest developments in organ transplantation of the liver and gut is example for the progress in treatment of gastrointestinal immunology
Gastrointestinal pathology is the subspecialty of surgical pathology which deals with the diagnosis and characterization of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the digestive tract and accessory organs, such as the pancreas and liver. Gastrointestinal pathology (including liver, gallbladder and pancreas) is a recognized sub-specialty discipline of surgical pathology. Recognition of a sub-specialty is generally related to dedicated fellowship training offered within the subspecialty or, alternatively, to surgical pathologists with a special interest and extensive experience in gastrointestinal pathology
Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is a technique from side to side which the doctors can be able to lookout inside the gastrointestinal track. Gastrointestinal endoscopy can be executed either an inpatient or an outpatient setting. Through this process assess the problems of the gastrointestinal track such as ulcers, inflamed mucous, abnormal growth, bleeding in the colon. Endoscopy has various names depending on which part of the digestive system doctor seeks to inspect.
Cirrhosis is a late stage of scarring (fibrosis) of the liver caused by many forms of liver diseases and conditions, such as hepatitis and chronic alcoholism. Cirrhosis occurs in response to damage to your liver. Each time your liver is injured, it tries to repair itself. In the process, scar tissue forms. As cirrhosis progresses, more and more scar tissue forms, making it difficult for the liver to function. Cirrhosis occurs in response to damage to your liver. Each time your liver is injured, it tries to repair itself. In the process, scar tissue forms. As cirrhosis progresses, more and more scar tissue forms, making it difficult for the liver to function which include Fluid accumulation in your abdomen (ascites), Confusion, drowsiness and slurred speech (hepatic encephalopathy), Testicular atrophy in men, Breast enlargement in men. Cirrhosis can also cause portal hypertension, Enlargement of the spleen (splenomegaly)
Pancreatic cancer begins in the tissues of your pancreas — an organ in your abdomen that lies horizontally behind the lower part of your stomach. Your pancreas releases enzymes that aid digestion and hormones that help manage your blood sugar.Pancreatic cancer typically spreads rapidly to nearby organs. It is seldom detected in its early stages. But for people with pancreatic cysts or a family history of pancreatic cancer, some screening steps might help detect a problem early. One sign of pancreatic cancer is diabetes, especially when it occurs with weight loss, jaundice or pain in the upper abdomen that spreads to the back
The pancreas is a large gland behind the stomach and next to the small intestine which produces juices that help break down food and hormones and help control blood sugar levels. Pancreatitis is a disease in which the pancreas converts inflamed. Pancreatic destruction happens when the digestive enzymes are triggered before they are released into the small intestine and initiate attacking the pancreas.
Gastrointestinal surgery is divided into lower GI surgery and upper GI surgery. Upper GI Surgery includes surgery for gastro-esophageal reflux, Gall bladder disease, Hernias, other benign esophageal and gastric disorders, other benign pancreatic and hepatobiliary disorders. Lower gastrointestinal surgery includes surgery of the small intestine and colorectal surgery.Laparoscope is a fiber-optic gadget that transmits pictures from internal part of the body to a video screen when it is embedded in the stomach divider.Gastrointestinal surgery is divided into lower GI surgery and upper GI surgery. Upper GI Surgery includes surgery for gastro-esophageal reflux, Gall bladder disease, Hernias, other benign esophageal and gastric disorders, other benign pancreatic and hepatobiliary disorders. Lower gastrointestinal surgery includes surgery of the small intestine and colorectal surgery.
Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is a technique from side to side which the doctors can be able to lookout inside the gastrointestinal track. Gastrointestinal endoscopy can be executed either an inpatient or an outpatient setting. Through this process assess the problems of the gastrointestinal track such as ulcers, Inflamed mucous, abnormal growth, bleeding in the colon. Endoscopy has various names depending on the which part of the digestive system doctor seeks to inspect.
The Intestinal Rehabilitation Program is the latest treatments to help your child’s intestine work well if affected by disease (like short bowel syndrome), injury or a surgery that removed part of it. With recent advances in diet, medicine and surgery, we have greatly reduced the need for intestine organ transplants in children. Intestinal rehabilitation is the process of gradually restoring the intestine’s ability to digest food and absorb nutrients. This is done through diet, medicines and surgery other than organ (intestine) transplant. Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) is a complete form of nutrition given into the blood through a vein (intravenously) by a central line placed in the child’s chest, neck or groin.
Liver disease is associated with many ED complaints: abdominal pain, vomiting, shortness of breath, altered mental status, GI bleeding, and even nonspecific malaise can all be attributed to malfunction of the liver.Globally, hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E are major public health problems
Gastrointestinal pathology is the subspecialty of surgical pathology which deals with the diagnosis and characterization of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the digestive tract and accessory organs, such as the pancreas and liver.The main purpose of the gastrointestinal tract is the transport of food and the absorption of nutrients. Many pathologic conditions of the gastrointestinal tract impair either or both of these functions. The gastrointestinal tract, and especially the colon, is a common site of malignancy. The two main symptoms related to pathology of the gastrointestinal tract are abdominal pain and gastrointestinal haemorrhage.
Digestive diseases are disorders of the digestive tract, which is sometimes called the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.In digestion, food and drink are broken down into small parts (called nutrients) that the body can absorb and use as energy and building blocks for cells.The digestive tract is made up of the esophagus (food tube), stomach, large and small intestines, liver, pancreas, and the gallbladder.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common type of primary liver cancer. Hepatocellular carcinoma occurs most often in people with chronic liver diseases, such as cirrhosis caused by hepatitis B or hepatitis C infection. The risk of hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common type of liver cancer, is higher in people with long-term liver diseases. It's also higher if the liver is scarred by infection with hepatitis B or hepatitis C. Hepatocellular carcinoma is more common in people who drink large amounts of alcohol and who have an accumulation of fat in the liver.
Liver inflammation due to a viral infection is viral hepatitis. In acute (recent infection, relatively rapid onset) or chronic forms it may be present.The most common causes of viral hepatitis are the five unrelated hepatotropic virus hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, hepatitis D, and hepatitis E. In addition to the nominal hepatitis viruses, other viruses which can also cause liver inflammation includes cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, and yellow fever. 52 cases of viral hepatitis caused by herpes simplex virus until 1997. To prevent or treat the most common types we have an opportunity. By vaccination Hepatitis A and hepatitis B can be prevented. Effective treatments for hepatitis C are available but it is expensive.
A liver biopsy is a procedure in which a small needle is inserted into the liver to collect a tissue sample. This is performed as an office or outpatient procedure or during surgery. The tissue is then analyzed in a laboratory to help doctors diagnose a variety of diseases and disorders in the liver. In most instances, there are no complications in obtaining a liver biopsy. However, rarely internal bleeding may occur, as well as a leak of bile from the liver or Gallbladder.
