Weight-loss surgery can reduce liver damage
Date:5/4/2014

. Inflammation was also improved, with lobular inflammation resolved in 74 percent of patients, chronic portal inflammation resolved in 32 percent, and steatohepatitis resolved in 88 percent.

In addition to these improvements, 62 percent of patients with stage two liver fibrosis had an improvement or resolution of the fibrosis. One of three patients with cirrhosis also showed improvement. Dr. Murr noted that these findings on fibrosis reversal apply only to early-stage fibrosis, and not late-stage liver disease.

"We are in the midst of an obesity epidemic that can lead to an epidemic of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease," said Dr. Murr. "As a tool in fighting obesity, bariatric surgery could also help prevent the emergence of widespread liver disease."

Dr. Michel Murr will present data from the study "Bariatric surgery improves histological features of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and liver fibrosis," abstract 233, on Sunday, May 4, at 8:30 a.m. CT, in room S504BCD of McCormick Place.
