Watch: Alcohol, Acetaminophen, Liver, Cirrhosis and Transplant

Alcohol, Liver, Cirrhosis and Transplant
by Joe Galati, M.D    on 09/26/2013

A segment that I recorded for this weeks Your Health First was with Dr. Howard Monsour who’s the Chief of hepatology at Houston Methodist. In this two-part interview, we discussed various aspects of alcoholic liver disease, effects of acetaminophen on the liver, and the difference between men and women in their alcohol consumption. As noted in prior posts, the issue of liver transplant in patients with alcoholism and alcoholic cirrhosis is controversial, but when carefully reviewed, their outcomes following transplant are equal or better than other diseases we transplant livers for.
