Is there an aftermath of encephalopathy?

Maybe

Cirrhosis_of_the_liver
Depends on the cause of the encephalopathy. If it was due to changes in metabolism (like cirrhosis, diabetes, etc.) then it may be quite reversible but there are some causes which may produce permanent and perhaps progressive damages.

What is postpanoxic encephalopathy ?

Post-anoxic?

Encephalopathy
Post-anoxic encephalopathy occurs when the brain is deprived of oxygen for a period of time. There are many causes of this including when a patient suffers a cardiac arrest and survives a prolonged resuscitation attempt. Sometimes, in this case, the body survives but the brain suffers a severe injury and the patient does not awaken.

Open-uri20120705-1660-1maqy01
In NE, it is not always possible to document a significant hypoxic-ischemic insult. There are potentially several other etiologies, specifically, it is important to exclude metabolic disease, infection, drug exposure, nervous system malformation and neonatal stroke as possible causes of the encephalopathy. The nature of brain injury causing neurologic impairment in a newborn is poorly understood.
