Evaluation of Aspartate Aminotransferase Platelets Ratio Index (APRI) and FIB-4 as Non Invasive Predictors of Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C *
Abstract Objectives: This study aims to assess simple models from routine investigation for prediction of significant fibrosis (Ishak score > 2) and cirrhosis in CHC patients. Patients and Method: Our retrospective cohort study studied 100 chronic HCV patients that had liver biopsy. Two indices were assessed, aspartate aminotransferase platelets ratio index (APRI) and FIB-4 to predict significant fibrosis and cirrhosis. ... إقراء المزيد
