Insulin Resistance, Visceral Adiposity Index and TyG Index in Genotype-4 Chronic HCV Patients and Their Relation to Hepatic Histopathology
Introduction: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 4 is the most prevalent in Egypt. Visceral adiposity index (VAI) and (TyG) index are newly developed indices for assessment of metabolic syndrome (MS) and insulin resistance (IR). We aimed at comparing their levels in HCV-patients with healthy controls and validate their use for prediction of hepatic histopathological changes. Patient and Methods: 78 chronic ... Read more

Metabolic Factors Associated with Heapatic Steatosis and Fibrosis in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C
OBJECTIVE: Hepatic steatosis is a common histological feature in chronic hepatitis C (CHC), but its pathogenic mechanisms are not completely understood. We aimed to evaluate the metabolic factors associated with hepatic steatosis and fibrosis in CHC patients, and the relation between metabolic syndrome (MS) and CHC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study included 71 patients with chronic HCV infection who underwent ... Read more

Does Histopathology Predict the Outcome of Fatty Liver Resection and Transplantation?
Hepatic steatosis is widely considered as substantial risk factor for postoperative complications after major hepatectomy and liver transplantation. Nonetheless, studies have been inconsistent regarding the extent of steatosis pertinent to aggravation of liver injury. Furthermore, a significant number of studies failed to show any link between hepatic steatosis and worse postoperative outcome. The confusion is further nourished by the conflicting ... Read more
