Evaluation of Aspartate Aminotransferase Platelets Ratio Index (APRI) and FIB-4 as Non Invasive Predictors of Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C
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. Result: ... Read more

Incidence, causes, and outcomes of renal failure among cirrhotic patients
BACKGROUND/AIMS: To evaluate the incidence, risk factors of RF among cirrhotic and its impact on patient’s outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 573 cirrhotic patients were evaluated for renal failure (RF) and its causes, 212 patients (37%) were enrolled. RESULTS: Majority of the patients had post hepatitis C liver disease (n=190, 89.6%) with Child-Pugh score C (88.2%), HCC was ... Read more

Outcomes and predictors of in-hospital mortality among cirrhotic patients with non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding in upper Egypt
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Variceal bleeding is one of the most frequent causes of morbidity and mortality among cirrhotic patients. Clinical endoscopic features and outcomes of cirrhotic patients with non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB) have been rarely reported. Our aim is to identify treatment outcomes and predictors of in-hospital mortality among cirrhotic patients with non-variceal bleeding in Upper Egypt. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A ... Read more

Spontaneous bacterial empyema in patients with liver cirrhosis in Upper Egypt: prevalence and causative organisms
Background :Spontaneous bacterial empyema (SBEM) is a complication in cirrhotic patients, in which a preexisting pleural effusion becomes infected. Purpose: The purpose was to determine the prevalence and causative organisms of SBEM among cirrhotic patients with hydrothorax. Materials and methods: This descriptive, cross-sectional study included 901 cirrhotic patients. All patients underwent clinical evaluation, liver function tests, chest X-ray, abdominal and ...

Clinical significance of elevated alpha-foetoprotein (AFP) in patients with chronic hepatitis C without hepatocellular carcinoma in upper EGYPT
Background and study aims: Egypt has the highest prevalence of hepatitis C in the world. Alphafoetoprotein (AFP) is important in the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but elevated AFP levels have also been observed in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) without HCC. We evaluated the clinical correlation between elevated AFP levels and CHC. We analysed data from a population-based cohort of ... Read more

Renal failure after upper-gastrointestinal bleeding among cirrhotic patients in Upper Egypt
Background and study aims: Renal dysfunction is a common and serious problem in patients with advanced liver disease. The study aims to assess the incidence, risk factors and short-term prognosis of renal failure after upper-gastrointestinal bleeding among cirrhotic patients in Upper Egypt. Methods: We recruited 159 cirrhotic patients with 168 episodes of upper-gastrointestinal bleeding from Tropical Medicine and Gastroenterology Department, ... Read more

Hepatobiliary disorders among naïve patients with ulcerative colitis in Upper Egypt
Background and study aims: Association of ulcerative colitis (UC) with hepatobiliary disorders is well recognised. The most common hepatobiliary complications of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are fatty liver infiltration and cholelithiasis. The prevalence of liver dysfunction in IBD remains unclear. The aim of the study is to try to identify the frequency and risk factors of hepatobiliary disorders among patients ... Read more
