anatomy and physiology
Anatomy and Physiology
  • Liver
    • Largest solid organ in the body
    • Plays role in:
      • Digestion
      • Absorption
      • Metabolism
anatomy and physiology1
Anatomy and Physiology
  • Liver
    • Plays role in
      • Blood clotting
      • Manufacture of important chemicals
      • Storage of nutrients
anatomy and physiology2
Anatomy and Physiology
  • Gallbladder stores bile until needed
  • Pancreas produces and excretes most of the intestinal enzymes
common signs and symptoms
Common Signs and Symptoms
  • Liver Disease
    • Jaundice
    • Pain is the most common symptom
diagnostic tests
Diagnostic Tests
  • Liver function tests measure bilirubin, albumin, alkaline phosphatase
  • Ultrasound, X-rays, CAT scan
  • Biopsy
  • Blood tests to measure pancreatic function
liver diseases
Liver Diseases
  • Hepatitis
    • Inflammation of the liver
    • Causes include chemical actions of drugs, toxic substances, chronic alcoholism, group of viruses
    • Viral hepatitis is the most prevalent
liver diseases1
Liver Diseases

liver diseases4
Liver Diseases
  • Viral Hepatitis occurs in five types
    • A, B, C, D, E
  • Hepatitis A: benign; spread by oral-fecal contact
  • Hepatitis B: formerly called “serum hepatitis” spread by blood, urine, feces, saliva, and semen
liver diseases5
Liver Diseases
  • Hepatitis C: spread by blood or sex
  • Hepatitis D: “delta virus” requires presence of hepatitis B to replicate
  • Hepatitis E: spread through fecal-oral contact, commonly due to water contamination
liver diseases6
Liver Diseases
  • Cirrhosis
    • Chronic, irreversible, degenerative
    • Replacement of normal liver cells with nonfunctioning scar tissue called “hobnail liver”
liver diseases7
Liver Diseases
  • Cirrhosis
    • Most common cause is chronic alcoholism
    • Symptoms
      • Loss of appetite
      • Nausea
      • Indigestion
      • Weakness and weight loss
liver disease
Liver Disease
  • Liver Cancer
    • Primary and benign tumors of liver are rare
    • Usually discovered late or end stage
    • Diagnosis confirmed by biopsy
    • Treatment may involve surgery, radiation, chemotherapy
gallbladder diseases
Gallbladder Diseases
  • Cholecystitis
    • Inflammation of gallbladder usually caused by obstruction of bile due to gallstone
    • Diagnosis is made by ultrasound, cholecystogram
