A new pump is being developed by researchers that could prevent patients with liver damage from undergoing transplants. The Researchers, who have been trailing the technology on a group of patients with severe alcohol-related liver failure at the Royal Free Hospital in north London, have found patients' liver damage can be reversed, Sky News reported. When patients suffer from liver disease, fluid builds up in the abdomen, but this device is implanted under the skin and pumps the liquid out and into the bladder. It is then removed naturally when the patient goes to the toilet. The pump removes around 10-15ml of fluid from the abdomen every 15 minutes and can remove four litres of fluid every day at its maximum.Source: ANI << Five Essential Grooming Tips for Men Researchers Turn Tumor Suppressor into Anti-Cancer Target >> Recommended Reading New Study Dismisses Direct Link Between Sugar Intake and Liver Disease Contrary to current beliefs, sugar intake is not directly connected to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease contends a new study that attributes high-calorie diets for progression of this serious disease.
