Abstract

The aim of this uncontrolled pilot study is to determine the effect of treatment with the molecular adsorbents recirculating system (MARS) on cerebral perfusion in patients with acute on chronic liver failure (AOCLF). In 8 patients (median age, 44 years; range, 35 to 52 years) admitted with AOCLF, a single 10-hour MARS treatment was performed. Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) was graded according to the Fogarty criteria. Changes in cerebral perfusionwere determined by transcranial Doppler as mean flow velocity (V-mean) in the middle cerebral artery. Arterial ammonia and bilirubin levels were monitored as a measure of the capability of the MARS to remove water-soluble and protein-bound toxins. During MARS treatment, HE grade improved in 3 patients and remained unchanged in 5 patients (P = .11). V-mean increased from 42 cm/sec (range, 26 to 59 cm/sec) to 72 cm/sec (range, 52 to 106 cm/sec; P <.05), whereas arterial ammonia level decreased from 88 <mu>mol/L (range, 45 to 117 mu mol/L) to 71 mu mol/L (range, 26 to 98 mu mol/L; P <.05) and bilirubin level from 537 <mu>mol/L (range, 324 to 877 mu mol/L) to 351 mu mol/L (range, 228 to 512 mu mol/L; P <.05). In conclusion, cerebral perfusion is increased and levels of ammonia and bilirubin are reduced during MARS treatment in patients with AOCLF.
