Abstract

Cerebral blood flow (CBF), measured by the non-invasive 133-Xenon inhalation method, plasma levels of ammonia (NH3) and free tryptophan (fTRP) were determined in 30 cirrhotic patients without overt encephalopathy. Psychometric evaluation detected subclinical hepatic encephalopathy (SHE) in 20 of them, and was normal in the other 10. A significant CBF difference (p
