Abstract Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide. The incidence of HCC is highest in Asia and Africa, where the endemic high prevalence of hepatitis B and hepatitis C strongly predisposes to the development of chronic liver disease and subsequent development of HCC. Aim of the Work: Our study was designed to characterize ...
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. ...
