背景

  • Dr. Vincent Lai’s experience comprises over five years of training in the regional transplant unit at the University Hospital of Birmingham. The unit has an average of 160 transplants per year and a history of over 3,500 patients who have undergone transplants and are on active review. During this time, Dr Lai was exposed to general and transplant hepatology, with particular interest in the management of acute liver failure and viral hepatitis. He was also trained in therapeutic ERCP, including sphincterotomy, stone extraction, biliary stent insertion and the use of a combined radiological approach for difficult cases.
  • Dr. Lai attended weekly liver transplant assessment meetings and developed further insights into the complexity of assessing a patient’s suitability for transplant. He had regular on-call duties during those five years and gained extensive experience in the management of patients with acute liver failure and those on intensive care during the immediate post-liver transplant period.
  • Dr Lai received the Midland Gastroenterology Society's Astra Prize, Investigator Award, European Association for the Study of the Liver Travel Award and American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases Travel Award.
  • Dr. Lai's special interest is in the management of patients presenting with acute liver failure and he was involved in the study using albumin dialysis with these patients. This particular study enabled him to develop the technical skills in setting up haemo-filtration devices, placement of haemodynamic monitoring catheters such as right heart catheter, intracranial pressure transducer and acquire knowledge in the management of fulminant hepatic failure.
  • Furthermore, Dr Lai gained experience in the management of clinical studies which has enabled him to further develop and initiate new clinical studies.
