Purulent pericarditis caused by group a streptococcus. (1/9)

Purulent pericarditis is a rare disease that is most often caused by organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, viridans streptococci, Haemophilus influenzae, and anaerobic bacteria. We present an unusual case of purulent pericarditis caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, Lancefield group A streptococcus (GAS), and we provide a review of the literature.  (+info)

Pericardial tamponade masquerading as septic shock. (2/9)

A 53-year-old man with steroid dependent rheumatoid arthritis presented with fever and serous articular drainage. Oral antibiotics were initially prescribed. Subsequent hemodynamic instability was attributed to septic shock. Further evaluation revealed a pericardial effusion with tamponade. Pericardiocentesis of purulent fluid promptly corrected the hypotension. Proteus mirabilis was later isolated from both the infected joint and the pericardial fluid. This is the first report of combined Proteus mirabilis septic arthritis and purulent pericarditis. It documents the potential for atypical transmission of Gram-negative pathogens, to the pericardium, in patients with a high likelihood of preexisting pericardial disease. In immunocompromised patients, the typical signs and symptoms of pericarditis may be absent, and the clinical presentation of pericardial tamponade may be misinterpreted as one of septic shock. This case underscores the value of a careful physical examination and proper interpretation of ancillary studies. It further illustrates the importance of initial antibiotic selection and the need for definitive treatment of septic arthritis in immunocompromised patients.  (+info)

Bacterial pericarditis and tamponade due to nonencapsulated Haemophilus influenzae complicating a case of adult community-acquired pneumonia. (3/9)

We report a case of bacterial pericarditis in an immunologically competent adult female caused by nonencapsulated Haemophilus influenzae (H influenzae) that was complicated by the acute development of life-threatening pericardial tamponade. H influenzae is a gram-negative coccobacillus, a pathogen most frequently associated with childhood exanthema (otitis media, meningitis) and, less frequently, adult pneumonia. Encapsulated, type b, or typable H influenzae is the strain implicated in childhood infections. On the other hand, nonencapsulated or nontypable H influenzae is the specific strain most often associated with exacerbation of chronic obstructive airway disease. Bacterial pericarditis caused by either subtype of H influenzae is exceedingly rare. We have located only 15 previously reported cases of H influenzae pericarditis occurring in adults in the world medical literature, the majority of which date back to the pre-antibiotic era. In 12 of these 15 cases (the only cases in which typing could be accomplished), the encapsulated strain of H influenzae was cultured from the pericardial fluid. Thus, to the best of our knowledge, we are reporting here the first case of bacterial pericarditis caused by nonencapsulated H influenzae in an immunologically competent adult.  (+info)

Complications after transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus. (4/9)

To evaluate the short- and mid-term results and complications ensuing the transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). Between October 1999 and December 2005, 117 patients (34 males and 83 females) underwent attempted percutaneous closure of PDA with a minimum diameter of more than 3 mm. Follow-up evaluations were conducted at 1 day and 1, 3, 6, 12 months after the performance of the transcatheter closure. The median age of patients at catheterization was 11 yr (range, 0.6 to 68 yr), median weight was 30 kg (range, 6 to 74 kg), and the median diameter of PDA was 4 mm (range, 3 to 8 mm). This procedure was conducted successfully in 114 patients (97.4%), using different devices. Major complications were detected in 4 patients (3.4%); significant hemolysis (2), infective endocarditis (1), failed procedure due to embolization (1). Minor complications occurred in 6 patients (5.1%); mild narrowing of the descending aorta (2) and mild encroachment on the origin of the left pulmonary artery (4). Although the transcatheter closure of PDA may be considered to be effective, several complications, including hemolysis, embolization, infective endocarditis, and the narrowing of adjacent vessels may occur in certain cases.  (+info)

Supervisor: Dr Weng Chan, Professor Paul Williams, and Dr Sarah Kuehne (University of Birmingham). Propionibacterium acnes, an aerotolerant anaerobic Gram-positive organism, is commonly known as a skin commensal due to its colonisation of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles. However, P. acnes can act as an opportunistic pathogen to cause invasive infections, particularly those associated with medical implants. P. acnes is the most frequently isolated pathogen in prosthetic shoulder joint infections, and is increasingly found in medical device-related cerebro- and cardiovascular infections. Until recently, P. acnes has been susceptible to a wide range of antibiotics. However, over the past 2 decades, resistance to metronidazole, macrolides, tetracycline and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole has been observed with increasing frequency. Hence, new classes of antibiotics are necessary to specifically combat medical device-associated infections caused by P. acnes.. Teixobactin is a recently ...

Chlamydia pneumoniae is detectable in the blood vessels of patients suffering from arteriosclerosis. Risk for arteriosclerosis is modulated by the apolipoprotein E (apoE) allele. We assessed the significance of the apoE genotype as a risk factor for vascular C. pneumoniae infection by determining the genotype of 30 coronary heart disease patients with PCR-proven C. pneumoniae infection of coronary artery tissue. The apoE genotype is not distinctly associated with an increased risk for vascular C. pneumoniae infection.. ...

Patients with myocarditis tend to be young and outcome can be highly variable. In this analysis, the authors show that patients with biopsy-proven myocarditis warrant close clinical follow-up, especially if abnormalities on CMR are noted. Examining survival based on the presence of LGE, the survival curves separated late (more than 1 year after presentation). Because LGE represents scar, LGE likely identifies a ventricle less likely to recover after the initial viral insult. While this is a low-powered study due to the fact that it is a single-center analysis of an uncommon disease, LGE identified 97% (28 of 29) of patients who had a cardiac death from myocarditis. However, only 28% (28 of 99) of myocarditis patients with LGE died. While CMR sensitivity for the detection of myocarditis is poor (53%), it identifies higher risk myocarditis patients. Patients with myocarditis who have LGE should be watched closely for several years. However, data are insufficient to become complacent in those ...

We examined the hypothesis that stromal fibroblasts modulate the power of endothelial cells (EC) to recruit lymphocytes within a site-specific way. source. Within the dermal co-cultures, neutralisation of IL-6 or TGF- triggered incomplete recovery of cytokine-induced lymphocyte adhesion; this is comprehensive when both had been neutralised. Exogenous IL-6 was also discovered to inhibit reaction to TNF-+IFN-. Regular stromal fibroblasts may actually regulate the cytokine-sensitivity of vascular endothelium, while fibroblasts connected with chronic irritation bypass this and create a straight inflammatory phenotype. Activities of IL-6 may be pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory, with regards SRT3190 to the regional milieu. 309 cells/mm2/106 perfused SRT3190 for EC mono-cultures; meanSEM; 29 which might donate to the augmentation of adhesion in synovial co-cultures.

There is great discussion about non-confluent pulmonary artery (PA) reconstruction, and several materials have been used. Autologous pericardium is considered feasible for infectious resistance, autoimmune response, extensibility, and growth potential. The patient was born at 39 weeks (body mass = 2550 g). He was diagnosed with tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary atresia, non-confluent PA, and bilateral patent ductus arteriosus. Right and left Blalock-Taussig shunts with patent ductus arteriosus ligations were placed on day 27 and 3 months, respectively. At 19 months (8.8 kg), definitive repair was performed with tricuspid valved conduit concurrent with PA reconstruction using an autologous pericardium roll conduit. The autologous pericardium was treated with glutaraldehyde (autologous pericardium fixed with 0.4% glutaraldehyde for 7 min and rolled as conduit - 12 mm in diameter and 30 mm in length). Following an incision on the visceral side of the PAs before the 1st branch, the autologous pericardial roll

According to this study, there was a significant difference in the risk of complications after lipoma resection depending on the presence of a capsule. Firstly, the authors concluded that in an encapsulated lipoma, the margins with the surrounding soft tissue are clear; therefore, capsule-containing resection is possible. However, in a nonencapsulated lipoma, it is difficult to define the plane of resection, which can increase the likelihood of delayed wound healing.. Secondly, nonencapsulated lipomas are more likely than encapsulated lipomas to develop in a dependent position. In this study, nine nonencapsulated lipomas occurred in the posterior aspect of the neck and 12 nonencapsulated lipomas occurred in the back, which was significantly higher than the incidence of encapsulated lipomas in those areas. If patients spend a long time lying down, with continuous irregular application of pressure over the site, the resultant poor circulation could aggravate the wound healing process.. Instead of ...
substrate oxidation such as that of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids, are based on tracer (14C or13C) data, and often depend on the isotopic content of expired CO2. The recovery of tracer-labelled CO2 generated from the oxidation of13C labelled substrates may not be 100% over short term. This can lead to underestimation of oxidation rate of substrates, and consequently a correction for the incomplete recovery of tracer has to be applied by the determination of the recovery of13CO2 in the breath during tracer bicarbonate infusions. We have studied the recovery of tracer-labelled bicarbonate using a bolus administration model, and further characterized kinetics of bicarbonate using a three-compartment model, to assess which compartmental fluxes changed during the change from a fasted state to fed state. Recovery of bicarbonate was lower at 69% and 67% (fasted and fed state) than the value of 71% and 74% found during earlier longer term of continuous infusions. During feeding, there was a ...

Intracellular pH (pHi) is an important factor for understanding cellular processes associated with the response of central neurons to metabolic disturbances such as anoxia or ischemia. In the present study, pHi was fluorometrically measured in 2′7′-bis(carboxyethyl)-5(6)-carboxyfluorescin (BCECF)-filled, voltage-clamped dorsal vagal neurons (DVN) of brainstem slices from rats during metabolic disturbances activating ATP-sensitive K+ (KATP) channels. Chemical anoxia induced by cyanide, rotenone or p-trifluoromethoxy-phenylhydrazone (FCCP) decreased pHi by ,0.4 pH units. Untreated neurons with normal pHi baseline (7.2) responded to glucose-free superfusate after a delay of 7-16 min with a progressive fall of pHi. In contrast, pHi increased by ,0.2 pH units after 10 min in cells that had a mean pHi of 6.8 due to incomplete recovery from a CN-induced acid load prior to glucose depletion. Metabolic arrest, induced by cyanide in glucose-free solution after 30 min preincubation in glucose-free ...

BACKGROUND:Cardiac device infection (CDI) is a serious complication of cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) implantations. Many risk factors have been identified, but several are still uncertain. This study aimed to identify and evaluate the risk factors. Moreover, an infection control protocol (ICP) was carried out, and its efficacy in reducing CDIs was investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS:A total of 1259 patients who received permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantations were enrolled in this study in a 3-year period in a high-volume center and low-volume centers in the central area of Shaanxi Province, China. Follow-up data of all enrolled patients were collected. The risk factors for CDIs were identified and analyzed. The ICP was adopted in the low-volume centers. Data, including CDI rates, medical costs, and microbiology, were collected and compared. RESULTS:Male gender, diabetes, CKD, operation duration, PPM replacement, and low center volume were identified as the risk factors for CDIs.

According to Garmins website, Body Battery combines heart rate variability (HRV), stress, and activity data to calculate the users likely energy reserves. It uses this information to generate a number between 1-100, where 100 is maximum energy.. HRV is a useful measurement of sympathetic nervous system dominance. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the fight or flight response and is associated with increased heart rate, suppressed immunity, digestion, and anxiety, among other things. Normally, when we exhale, we become slightly more parasympathetic, meaning our body slightly relaxes. This is indicated by a slight decrease in heart rate, providing us with variability.. If the heart rate does not change as much during exhalation - if variability is low - it suggests the body is too stressed to calm itself down. This tends to correlate with physiological arousal, illness, toxicity, psychological stress, hunger, or incomplete recovery.. ...

Several studies have identified characteristics associated with CIED infections. In a single-center case-control study,18 case subjects were more likely to have diabetes mellitus and heart failure and to have undergone generator replacement; renal dysfunction (glomerular filtration rate ,60 mL · min−1 · 1.72 m−2) had the strongest (odds ratio [OR] 4.8) association with CIED infection. Renal dysfunction was also associated with risk of CIED infection in a more recent nested case-control investigation.19 In addition, Lekkerkerker et al19 identified oral anticoagulant use as an associated risk factor for infection. In another single-center case-control study, 29 patients with PPM infection were included, and long-term corticosteroid use (OR=13.9) and the presence of more than 2 pacing leads (OR=5.41) were identified as independent correlates of device infection.20. In addition to patient factors, procedural characteristics may also play an important role in the development of CIED infection. ...
Pericarditis is a condition in which the sac-like covering around the heart (pericardium) becomes inflamed. A characteristics chest pain is often present. The hearts sits in the center of the chest and is surrounded by a sac called the pericardium. This sac has two layers, one that fits tightly onto the heart muscle and another looser layer surrounding the inner layer. Inflammation of these tissue layers surrounding the heart is referred to as pericarditis.. Causes of Pericarditis Pericarditis is usually a complication of viral infections, most commonly echovirus or coxsackie virus. Less frequently, it is caused by influenza or HIV infection. Infections with bacteria can lead to bacterial pericarditis (also called purulent pericarditis). Some fungal infections can also produce pericarditis. There are many causes of pericarditis. Most often the cause is unknown. In this case, the condition is called idiopathic pericarditis.. The causes of pericarditis are varied, including viral infections of the ...
Over 140 US hospitals and clinics have signed up for Medtronics risk-sharing program that seeks to lower infection rates with pacemakers and defibrillators through the use of the companys Tyrx Antibacterial Envelope. Under the program, a substantial rebate will be paid by Medtronic toward the $50,000 cost of replacing an infected Medtronic device if the earlier surgery used a Tyrx envelope, which dissolves in weeks and delivers antibiotics to the pocket around the heart.
The venous input matches the ventricular output by the end of systole, and the intra-pericardial space is once again full. When diastolic ventricular relaxation ensues, loss of blood from the atria does not relieve atrial pressure because the hydraulic action of the displaced pericardial fluid now impinges on the emptying atria. Right atrial communication with the engorged systemic venous reservoir also tends to maintain a high level of pressure in the atria, preventing the y-descent and often producing a y-ascent ...

Liposomes are currently being investigated as potential parenterally used drug carriers. The main factor that influences the in vivo behavior of such liposomes is their vesicle size. A detailed and reliable knowledge of vesicle size is therefore necessary in order to interpret results of physical and biological investigations in a correct manner. It has earlier been discovered that it is feasible to determine the size distribution of vesicle dispersions in a reliable manner and it appears especially useful to employ the combination of SEC fractionation, PCS and the enzymatic PC quantitation. A drawback discovered was for certain liposome dispersions that in some of the dispersions SEC fractionation showed incomplete recovery of the vesicles. This indicated a demand for a different fractionation method which does not have the limitations that the SEC method described above has. To this end flow field-flow fractionation was chosen. In a previous study the influence of some key factors such as ...
In 2015, the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) proposed a conceptual definition that applies to all types of SE: (1) SE starts as a condition resulting from failure of seizure-termination mechanisms or the initiation of pathological mechanisms that likely lead to continuous seizure activity, and (2) SE creates long-term consequences that begin to occur after the onset of SE, including neuronal death, neuronal injury, and alteration of neuronal networks. This definition hinges on the identification of the semiology of SE: the clinical manifestations of seizure activity (Table 16-1). Specifically for generalized CSE, criterion 1 is defined when seizures last longer than 5 minutes and criterion 2 occurs at the point that long-term consequences begin to appear, around 30 minutes.1 Convulsive SE is also defined as recurrent seizures between which there is incomplete recovery of consciousness.4 ...
A case of Brucella melitensis endocarditis in a patient with cardiovascular implantable electronic device Wasl Al-Adsani, Ali Ahmad, Mohammad Al-Mousa Department of Internal Medicine, Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital, Jabriya, Kuwait Background: Brucellosis is a bacterial infection, caused by the nonmotile gram-negative aerobic coccobacilli. The clinical manifestation of brucellosis is variable, ranging from mild disease to severe disease. The gold standard test to confirm the diagnosis of brucellosis is assaying blood, bone marrow, or other body fluids or by tissue culture. Preferred first-line treatment in adults with uncomplicated, nonlocalized disease consists of doxycycline–aminoglycoside combination. The recommended duration of treatment is 6 weeks. Cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) infection caused by brucellosis is rare and has been reported in a few case study series. We report a case of Brucella melitensis infection of CIED where, contrary to most authorities
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of volume expansion and vasodilators in acute pericardial tamponade. AU - Gascho, J. A.. AU - Martins, J. B.. AU - Marcus, M. L.. AU - Kerber, R. E.. PY - 1981/1/1. Y1 - 1981/1/1. N2 - Pharmacologic therapy may be useful as emergency treatment for acute pericardial tamponade while preparing for pericardiocentesis. We studied the effects of volume expansion and vasodilators in acute pericardial tamponade in spontaneously breathing mongrel dogs. Hemodynamic parameters and blood flow (15-μm microspheres) to brain, heart, kidney, colon, stomach, liver, and temporalis muscle were measured. Arterial pressure and cardiac output rose, and blood flow to all major organs, except stomach, increased after volume expansion (n=17) by infusion of 20 ml/kg of dextran after tamponade. With nitroprusside (8-75 μg/min) after volume expansion (n=5), ventricular filling pressures were reduced to control levels, whereas the favorable effects of volume expansion on cardiac output, blood ...

N2 - Introduction Abandoned cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) leads remain a contraindication to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies, largely due to in vitro data showing endocardial heating secondary to the radiofrequency field. We tested the hypothesis that abandoned CIED leads do not pose an increased risk of clinical harm for patients undergoing MRI.Methods This single-center retrospective study examined the outcomes of patients who had device generators removed before MRI, rendering the device leads abandoned. Information was gathered ...
This medical exhibit depicts thoracic aortic dissection with pericardial tamponade in a series of illustrations. Labeled blood vessel layers include the tunica adventitia (outer layer), tunica media (middle layer) and tunica intima (inner layer). Shows the intimal layer tear progressing from a balloon-like structure in the aortic arch to a rupture of the proximal aorta with bleeding into the pericardial cavity. This condition, pericardial (cardiac) tamponade, is life-threatening and greatly reduces the hearts ability to function.

  • is indeed a causative factor of this disease, it was necessary to demonstrate that anti-Chlamydia treatment could alleviate symptoms of cardiovascular pathology. (
  • Data from the prospective Physicians Health Study (PHS) have been particularly informative because that study evaluated a group of low-risk men with no prior history of cardiovascular disease and low rates of cigarette consumption. (
  • A separate nested substudy performed on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), prospectively collected from 80 cases and 80 controls, examines the host T-cell proliferative response to CMV and other pathogens in relation to disease and also searches for a chronic persistent infection with Chlamydia pneumoniae evidence by DNA detection. (
  • Findings from several key clinical investigations that were published after 2003 prompted the Rheumatic Fever, Endocarditis, and Kawasaki Disease Committee of the Council on Cardiovascular Disease in the Young of the American Heart Association to provide an updated document limited to CIED infections. (
  • Severe infections in adulthood are associated with subsequent short-term cardiovascular disease. (
  • All-cause cardiovascular disease (n = 46,754), including coronary heart disease (n = 10,279) and stroke (n = 3438), was identified through national registers 1970-2010 (at ages 18-58 years). (
  • Sepsis or pneumonia in adulthood (resulting in hospital admission) are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease in the years following infection. (
  • Raised risks of cardiovascular disease following hospital admission for sepsis or pneumonia were increased for more than five years after the infection, but with the highest magnitude during the first three years following infection, suggesting a period of vulnerability when health professionals and patients should be aware of the heightened risk for cardiovascular disease. (
  • Causality - When do we have Sufficient Evidence to Mark a Risk Factor for Prophylactic Purposes Against Cardiovascular Disease? (
  • Objective To study the association of clarithromycin with cardiovascular events in the setting of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and community acquired pneumonia. (
  • Results 268 cardiovascular events occurred in the acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease cohort and 171 in the community acquired pneumonia cohort over one year. (
  • After multivariable adjustment, clarithromycin use in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events and acute coronary syndrome-hazard ratios 1.50 (95% confidence interval 1.13 to 1.97) and 1.67 (1.04 to 2.68). (
  • A significant association was found between clarithromycin use and cardiovascular mortality (adjusted hazard ratio 1.52, 1.02 to 2.26) but not all cause mortality (1.16, 0.90 to 1.51) in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (
  • Use of β lactam antibiotics or doxycycline was not associated with increased cardiovascular events in patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, suggesting an effect specific to clarithromycin. (
  • Conclusions The use of clarithromycin in the setting of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or community acquired pneumonia may be associated with increased cardiovascular events. (
  • Objective: To investigate the relation between seropositivity to chronic infections with Helicobacter pylori and Chlamydia pneumoniae and both coronary heart disease and cardiovascular risk factors. (
  • Conclusions: Both H pylori and C pneumoniae infections are associated with coronary heart disease. (
  • We postulated that these chronic infections, which are accompanied by a persistent inflammatory response, may contribute to the risk of coronary heart disease by increasing the concentrations of acute phase reactants such as fibrinogen9 10 and sialic acid,11 which are predictors of coronary heart disease.

  • Today only the most forbearing experts mapping the interlacings of HIV and cardiovascular disease can resist the heart/HAART homophone. (
  • 1 Did HIV infection cause heart disease in these young men? (
  • At the same time, HIV heart experts hasten to caution, a causal relationship between HIV or combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) and cardiovascular disease can be established only in a randomized controlled trial, and such a trial -- were it even feasible -- would have to be large and long. (
  • An international panel of experts on heart disease in HIV-positive people outlined three routes by which HIV, its treatment, or both may contribute to development of cardiovascular disease. (
  • Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) regimens, especially those including protease inhibitors have been shown to cause, in a high proportion of HIV-infected patients, a metabolic syndrome (lipodystrophy/lipoatrophy, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance) that may be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. (
  • The study also highlighted that severe oral infections and inflammations is related to increased risk of cardiovascular risk factors and disease in adults. (

  • With advances in antiretroviral therapy (ART), individuals with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection are living longer and increasingly die of non-HIV-related diseases, such as cardiovascular disease (CVD). (
  • With this information in mind, Israeli researchers hypothesized that pre-infection treatment with low-dose aspirin (75mg) use might have a potential beneficial effect on COVID-19 susceptibility and disease duration. (
  • HCV is capable to trigger, behind liver damage, extrahepatic manifestations, including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes (T2DM). (
  • A close association has been reported between HCV infection and cardiovascular disease due to imbalances in metabolic pathways and chronic inflammation. (
  • T2DM increases the risk of compensated and decompensate cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma as well as increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, lower limb amputation and end stage renal disease. (
  • Current evidence suggests that HCV eradication reduces the incidence and mortality of cardiovascular disease and T2DM, further underling the importance of public health strategies for eradication the infection. (
  • Aim of this review is to update evidence and management of interaction between HCV, cardiovascular disease, and T2DM in the era of DAA treatment. (
  • And if you have cardiovascular disease (CVD), you form part of a group that is known as the "risk group" for COVID-19 infection. (

  • To better understand the results, the research team also compared the risk of cardiovascular disease following severe infections to the risk of the disease as a result of lifestyle factors. (
  • The results indicated that the 3-year time period following hospitalization for serious infections were associated with greater risks of being diagnosed with cardiovascular disease than well-known cardiac health risk factors including hypertension, obesity, and lack of exercise, reinforcing that severe illness was a major influencer. (
  • Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in people with HIV co-infection is associated with an increased risk of liver disease and liver-related death and also several important non-liver related disorders, including kidney disease and osteoporosis and fractures, according to data from the Swiss HIV Cohort published in the online edition of Clinical Infectious Diseases . (
  • It is well known that chronic HCV infection is associated with an increased risk of serious liver disease and liver-related death. (
  • However, it is less clear if the infection is also associated with an increased risk of serious non-liver-related events, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, malignancies and bone complications. (
