NEW  VM108  Liver Biopsy in the Acute Setting: Leading the Discussion in Clinical Management

Wednesday, October 16
9:30–11:30 AM

Practice-Based Learning and Improvement Interpersonal and Communication Skills

Liver pathology is a key tool in management decision among patients presenting with acute liver injury. Since there is no known liver replacement strategy other than transplantation, acute care decisions of whether or not to list for transplantation often have to be made to enable the onset of appropriate workup and/or arrange for a transfer to a transplant center. Also, the necessary intervention could simply be the identification and removal of an exogenous toxin hitherto unrecognized, the identification of a process that contraindicates transplantation, or other types of intervention. Pathologists should be equipped with the ability not only to review the morphologic features in these biopsies, but also to incorporate key elements of the clinical context in order to lead the management team in the right direction. This course uses examples of real situations and digital microscopy to demonstrate these roles.
