             2, 출생직후 glycogenolysis 거의 소모하고 다시 출생 2주부터

             glycogen 합성하여 재축적

             adult level  3wk 도달

             preterm infant 에서 glucose fluctuation

                   full-term gestation end glycogen synthesis, storage, degradation

                   등의 적절한 조절이 가능하기 때문

            gluconeogenesis 태생기도 존재하지만 출생후 신속히 증가

Protein Metabolism

             albumin : 태생 7-8주경 형성시작, newborn low (2.5g/dl),

                                   adult level(3.5g/dl) 7개월후

             태생 3-4개월경 fibrinogen, transferrin, LDL 합성

             성인 level; ceruloplasmin--1세말, transferrin--출생시, 점차 감소

             cystine, taurine 등은  exogenous supply필요

                   ∵출생시 cystathionase결핍으로 인한 trans-sulfuration 장애

Lipid Metabolism

                   --> gluconeogenesis 활성화


             monooxygenase system : fetus

                   i) cytochrome P-450

Hepatic Excretory Function

# Metabolism Of Bile Acid

    ; primary bile aids (cholic, chenodeoxycholic acid ) 간에서 합성

           --> *conjugated with glycine, taurine

           --> secretion

           --> assist in fat digestion & absorption

           --> reabsorbed from terminal ileum --> enterohepatic circulation(90-95% reabsorb in adult)

           ==> colonic bacteria 의해 secondary bile acid (deoxycholate, lithocholate)

           ==> stool

# NB

    ; decreased size of bile acid pool & reduced bile acid concentration in proximal intestine

           --> reduced absorption of fats & fat-soluble vitamin

           --> *but no malabsorption

           - abnormal size & consistency of liver

Imaging Techniques

    ; not helpful

    2) $93 Hepatobiliary scintigraphy(99m Tc IDA)

           - absence of excretion into the intestine in biliary atresia

           - Pb 5mg/kg/day for 5days before the study

Liver Biopsy

; *reliable discriminatory evidence

    1) Biliary Atresia

           ; *bile ductular proliferation

           ; *presence of bile plugs

           ; portal or perilobular edema & fibrosis

           ; intact basic hepatic lobular architecture

    2) neonatal hepatitis

           ; severe, diffuse hepatocellular ds.

           ; *distortion of lobular architecture

           ; marked infilt. with inflam. cells

           ; focal hepatocellular necrosis

           ; normal bile ductules

    3) *giant cell transformation : no diagnostic specificity

    4) histologic changes similar to idiopathic neonatal hepatitis

           ; α1-antitrypsin def., galactosemia, intrahepatic bile duct paucity

Management Of Patients With Suspected B.A.

1. Exploratory Laparotomy & Direct Cholangiography

    ; correctable lesion

           - direct drainage

           - *cholangiography patent biliary tree but diminished caliber 경우에 not due to biliary tract obliteration이면 no transection of & further dissection into porta hepatis

    ; no correctable lesion

           - frozen sections : determine size & patency of the residual bile ducts

           - hepatoportoenterostomy procedure of Kasai

           - Rationale for operation

             / minute bile duct remnant(residual channel) porta hepatis fibrous tissue 존재

           - 술후 1개월이내에 bile flow 형성되지 않으면, progressive obliteration, cirrhosis 고려

           - *greater than 150u in diameter --> establishment of bile flow

    ; *most successful(90%) if performed before 8 wks of life

2. 93 Cx of Kasai Op

    cholangitis (2-18mo)

    growth retardation

    fat-soluble vit deficiency (6m-3yr)

    portal hypertension (1-2yr)

    chronic hepatic insufficiency(2yr 이후)

3. Good long term outcome of Kasai operation

    2개월내 수술

    경미한 술전 간손상

    재발성 담도염(-)

    op 간문 담도(porta hepatis) 직경 150 μm

4. Persistent inflammation after operation

    ; biliary atresia is dysnamic process involving the entire hepatobiliary system

5. Short-Term Benefit Of Hepatoportoenterostomy

    ; decopression & drainage

           - forestall cirrhosis

           - sustain growth until successful liver transplantation

Managenent Of Chronic Cholestasis

1. ♥♨Pathogenesis Of Chronic Cholestasis

    1) any substance is retained in liver, and then accumulation in tissue & serum

           - bile acids, bilirubin, cholesterol, tace element

    2) decreased delivery of bile acid to prox. intestine

           --> inadequate digestion & absorption of dietary long chain TG and fat soluble vitamins

    3) impairment of hepatic metabolic function

           --> alteration of hormonal balance & nutrient utilization

    4) progressive liver damage

           --> biliary cirrhosis, portal HT, liver failure

2. Management

                   97 # cholestyramine S/E

                           i) constipation

                           ii) hyperchloremia

                           iii) exacervation of fat soluble vitamine deficiency

                   # ursodeoxycholic acid ~ 15mg/kg/day

    4) PH, variceal bleeding, hypersplenism

           G-I hemorrhage ; not esophageal varices but gastritis or peptic ulcer ds

    5) Ascites

           i) dietary salt restrictlon 0.5g ( 1-2 mEq/kg/day ) ; no necessary to restrict fluid intake

           ii) diuretics : furosemide alone or combined spironolactone(3-5mg/kg/day)

           iii) protein intake limitation : hepatie encephalopathv
