How bad is a focal area suggestiv of central fibrosis within liver. Mild centrilobular cholestasis and attached fibroadiposed tissue with fat necrosis?

Depends: It is impossible to evaluate these findings without knowing the clinical setting and the results of other tests of liver function. Certainly this does not make me suspect liver cancer. If you have questions about this ultrasound finding, I would ask your doctor or your gastroenterologist. Good luck. ...Read more

Colon mass: Cheryl, this is difficult to answer. If you have a biopsy diagnosis of colorectal carcinoma, then the liver lesion may represent a metastasis. It could also represent only a liver hemangioma. Only a liver biopsy of the lesion is definitive. Red cell tagging studies sometimes can be definitive noninvasive study for liver hemangioma but does not have 100% sensitivity and may give false negative. ...Read more

What is liver mets with necrotic centre ?

What is liver mets with necrotic centre ?

Loss of viability: When tumors metastasize to the liver, their surface glycoproteins determines that they grow only in a liver ferritin substrate and cant metastasize elsewhere. The lesion will grow since its main blood supply is hepatic artery where liver parenchyma is fed by the portal system. As the lesion enlarges , the hepatic blood supply is unable to reach the center of the tumor and necrosis appears ...Read more

If both hepatic portal vein and hepatic arteries have thrombosis how long would it take for the liver to become necrotic ?

If both hepatic portal vein and hepatic arteries have thrombosis how long would it take for the liver to become necrotic ?

Liver ischemia: There are 2 blood supplies to the liver. The portal vein which supplies about 80% and the hepatic artery which supplies about 20%. If both are occluded the liver can become ischemic and die. This can happen right away. If one is occluded in one of the larger branches though blood can find other routs to get to the liver tissue. Also, the thrombus may recannalize and some blood may get through. ...Read more
