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) ... إقراء المزيد
