Abstract

Patients with fulminant hepatic failure have a bleak prognosis. As a result there has been continued research for the development of artificial liver support devices (Brunner and Schmidt, 1981). However, the assessment of any liver support system is difficult because of uncertainties regarding the aetiology, pathogenesis and outcome of hepatic coma. The design and timing of the use of these systems have thus been largely empirical.
