Supplement Issue: Digestive Diseases 1996, Vol. 14, Suppl. 1 This publication is devoted entirely to hepatic encephalopathy. Contributed by leading specialists, the articles highlight the latest developments in the diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of this syndrome. Of great interest to readers will be the expert coverage of the newer areas of proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy of the brain and the impact of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS) on hepatic encephalopathy. A good description of the tried and true treatment of lactulose is also provided. The importance of subclinical hepatic encephalopathy and our possible future approaches to exploring the pathogenesis of this enigmatic syndrome are featured. Providing convenient access to the most recent advances, this issue will be of major interest to hepatologists, gastroenterologists and liver transplantation personnel.
