Congestive hepatopathy and hypoxic hepatitis in heart failure: a cardiologist's point of view.

In the setting of long-standing severe chronic heart failure, other organ systems are also involved. The liver is one of the organs that are very sensitive to haemodynamic changes. Differential diagnosis of the liver injury is extremely important in the cardiologist's clinical practice and calls for cardiologist's and hepatologist's collaboration because there are many other diseases that can affect the liver and mimic haemodynamic injury. In this article, liver injuries depending on cardiocirculatory dysfunction such as hypoxic hepatitis and congestive hepatopathy are analysed. The material in the article is presented in two aspects: the evaluation and treatment of heart failure in order to prevent pathologic processes in the liver, and the recognition of the liver injury, including diagnostic tests which are essential for differential diagnosis of different liver pathologies.
