  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Acute alcohol intoxication produces changes in the cognitive functioning of normal individuals.[] These changes appear similar prima facie to those exhibited by individuals who sustain prefrontal lobe damage during adulthood.[]

  • Alcoholic Liver Disease

    Tc-99m-sulfur colloid scintigrams were abnormal in four patients with hepatic dysfunction due to chronic alcohol abuse. Minimal uptake of radiocolloid in the liver suggested local reticuloendothelial (RE) cell failure. Imaging with a new hepatobiliary agent, Tc-99m-PIPIDA, revealed rapid hepatic accumulation and excretion[…][]

  • Alcoholic Ketoacidosis

    Alcoholic ketoacidosis (AKA) is a complex syndrome that results from disrupted metabolism in the setting of excessive alcohol use and poor oral intake. Dehydration, glycogen depletion, high redox state, and release of stress hormones are the primary factors producing the characteristic anion gap metabolic acidosis[…][]

  • Alcoholic Amnestic Disorder

    The serotonin uptake inhibitor fluvoxamine was assessed in treatment of alcohol-induced Korsakoff's syndrome (KS) using fixed (4 weeks, 200 mg/day) or individualized (6 weeks, plasma concentration or 400 ng/ml) dosing in randomized placebo-controlled double-blind crossover studies. Cognitive functions and[…][]

  • Alcoholic Fatty Liver
