The aim of the study was to test the feasibility of spleen stiffness measurement (SSM) by two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) and compare data on its diagnostic use with upper gastrointestinal endoscopy in children with extrahepatic portal hypertension (EHPH) before and after surgery.

Clinically significant portal hypertension (CSPH) is responsible for most of the complications in patients with cirrhosis. Liver stiffness (LS) measurement by vibration-controlled transient elastog...
Portal venous pressure (PVP) measurement is of clinical significance, especially in patients with portal hypertension. However, the invasive nature and associated complications limits its application....
The natural history of HCV chronic infection has drastically changed after direct-acting antiviral treatment. Due to the high-sustained virological response (SVR) achieved, non-invasive estimation of ...
Arterial stiffness-typically assessed from non-invasive measurement of pulse wave velocity along a straight portion of the vascular tree between the right common carotid and femoral arteries-is a reli...
Measurement of central (aortic) systolic blood pressure has been shown to provide reliable information to evaluate target organ damage. However, non-invasive central blood pressure measurement procedu...
This is a prospective longitudinal study that will evaluate if changes (pre and post therapy) in indocyanine green (ICG) retention test and liver stiff ness (LS) and spleen stiffness (SS) ...
This study evaluates correlation in changes of HVPG-pressure values and stiffness values (ARFI) for spleen and liver and flow-volume values in Portal vein in patients with liver cirrhosis/...
Hypothesis: The severity of portal hypertension in compensated advanced chronic liver disease (cACLD) can be assessed using vibration controlled transient elastrography (VCTE) via the Fibr...
Evaluation of the tissue stiffness as a surrogate marker of degree of liver cirrhosis has gained popularity in recent decades. Current guidelines also advocate the use of Fibroscan® machi...
As cirrhosis progresses, alteration of hemodynamics develops and decreased portal flow is often observed. Since direct measurement of portal pressure (HVPG) is invasive, non-invasive metho...
A projective test used to evaluate a broad range of personality variables including pathology of thought and perception. The subject's responses to inkblot prints are scored along with subjective interpretation by the test administrator.
A performance test based on forced MOTOR ACTIVITY on a rotating rod, usually by a rodent. Parameters include the riding time (seconds) or endurance. Test is used to evaluate balance and coordination of the subjects, particular in experimental animal models for neurological disorders and drug effects.
Method of measuring the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy. It is used to monitor the therapy in BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS; OSTEOMYELITIS and other serious bacterial infections. As commonly performed, the test is a variation of the broth dilution test. This test needs to be distinguished from testing of the naturally occurring BLOOD BACTERICIDAL ACTIVITY.
A diagnostic test in which vitamin B12 is tagged with radioactive cobalt, taken orally, and gastrointestinal absorption is determined via measurement of the amount of radioactivity in a 24-hour urine collection.
Abnormal increase of resistance to blood flow within the hepatic PORTAL SYSTEM, frequently seen in LIVER CIRRHOSIS and conditions with obstruction of the PORTAL VEIN.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries between the heart and lungs of affected individuals. Symptoms can range from mild breathles...
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
