Role of portal haemodynamic parameters in prediction of oesophageal varices in cirrhotic patients
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Screening all cirrhotic patients by endoscopy for detection of varices is not cost-effective as the number of patients increases by time and half of them still would not have developed varices 10 years after being diagnosed with cirrhosis. Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate hepatic haemodynamic Doppler parameters in predicting the presence of oesophageal varices (OVs) ... Read more

Incidence and predictors of rebleeding after band ligation of oesophageal varices
Background and study aims: Variceal bleeding is a severe complication in patients with portal hypertension. Early rebleeding occurs frequently in the first few weeks after band ligation, and the mortality associated with each bleeding episode ranges from 30% to 50%. Our aims were to study the rate of early rebleeding oesophageal varices after band ligation in the Sohag University Hospital, ... Read more

Clinical Utility of Simple Fibrosis Markers in Prediction of Oesophageal Varices in Chronic Hepatitis C Patients with Advanced Fibrosis
Abstract Background and Aims: Oesophageal varices (OV) are the most common complication of liver cirrhosis. However, no available data exist on the prevalence and the laboratory predictors of OV in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) Egyptian patients with bridging fibrosis or cirrhosis. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the frequency of OV in these patients and to assess whether simple non-invasive serum ... Read more
