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® machine (EchoSens, Paris, France) to detect any advanced liver fibrosis as represented by high liver stiffness, for prediction of varices development. Apart from liver stiffness, studies have shown that spleen stiffness (SS) has been proven another useful parameter to severity of underlying portal...
Shear Wave Elastography (SWE™) is a quantitative elastography method for measuring tissue stiffness. The difference in stiffness between benign and malignant tumors has been demonstrated by other elastography methods (acoustic radiation force impulse imaging, transient elastography and/or magnetic resonance elastography). The investigators hypothesized that benign liver tumors are softer than malignant liver tumors measured by SWE™, allowing differentiation between the two...
Nodular goiter is a highly prevalent disease in iodine-deficient areas. Usually nodule assessment includes ultrasonography (US) and fine-needle aspiration (FNA), but some benign nodules can hardly be distinguished from carcinomas. Elastography measures tissue elasticity using sonography, as malignancy is related to stiffness of solid organs. The investigators have designed a study to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of elastography in nodular goiter. Consecutive patients will b...
Gastroesophageal varices are a complication of portal hypertension in cirrhosis.Endoscopy is an unsatisfactory screening test.In this prospective clinical study,we will enroll patients with cirrhosis of various causes, all of whom undergo laboratory tests, elastography, and serum proteomic differential protein testing, including liver elastography (LSM) and spleen elastography (SSM). Baveno VI or expanded BavenoVI criteria are validated by comparing patients' LSM, SSM, serum di...
Assess the accuracy of the sequential measurements by 3D Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) for predicting histological response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced breast cancer.
Predictive Value of Various Nutritional Screening and Assesment Tools and a Surgery Scoring System (POSSUM Score) for Predicting Postoperative Complications in Patients Scheduled for Abdominal Surgery.
The purpose of this study is to assess the value of preoperative objective modalities such as endoscopic ultrasound elastography and magnet resonance imaging in predicting development of postoperative pancreatic fistula in patients undergoing pancreatic surgery for benign or malignant disease.
role of RDW as anon invasive method for predicting liver cell failure & portal hypertension in cirrhotic patient
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication, occurring in approximately 20% of hospitalized cirrhotic patients and has a significant negative impact on patients' outcomes according to either the initial stage (at the time of the first fulfillment of AKI criteria), or the peak stage (at the peak value of serum creatinine concentration during hospitalization). Among all the precipitating factors to cirrhotic AKI, acute gastrointestinal hemorrhage is a common cause that lea...
Tissue elasticity is being increasingly used as diagnostic parameter, since at the macroscopic level benign breast lesions tend to be stiffer than normal breast tissue but softer than breast cancers. Ultrasound elastography allows to probe the elasticity of breast lesions in clinics. Real time elastography (RTE) and shear wave elastography (SWE) are the two most widely used elastography modalities. Assessment of breast lesions by either RTE or SWE improve the diagnostic perfor...
This is a pilot study including 20 cirrhotic patients that will be randomized to receive during 3 months leucine vs leucine plus a programme of physical exercise specially designed for cirrhotic patients. The hypothesis is that physical exercise in cirrhotic patients could increase muscle mass (and therefore glutamine synthetase activity leading to a higher blood ammonium clearance) and quality of life. Safety of physical exercise in cirrhotic patients will be strictly assessed...
The objective of the study was to evaluated the feasibility and reproducibility of the measurement of lung elasticity report / fetal liver according to gestational age in a group of patients with a normal course of pregnancy and in a group of Patients at risk of preterm delivery.
Chronic hepatitis C remains a public health issue because up to 70 million people are chronically infected by hepatitis C virus (HCV) worldwide. Presence of advanced fibrosis/cirrhosis might be associated with liver-related complications, such as hepatocellular carcinoma and oesophageal varices bleeding. Oesophageal varices (OV) might be present in up to 40% of patients with liver cirrhosis have and the mortality rates from bleeding might be up to 20% per episode. Early diagnos...
A single-center, observational, prospective, single cohort study with before-after design. Evaluation by shear-wave elastography, measured in kilopascals (KPa), of the muscle, tendon and cubital nerve, before and after the maneuver of putting in tension of the ulnar nerve.
Gastroesophageal varices occurs in approximately half of the patients with liver cirrhosis. Variceal bleeding is the most common lethal complication directly from cirrhotic portal hypertension. The golden standard for diagnosing gastroesophageal varices and evaluating the risk of variceal bleeding is the esophagogastroduodenoscopy. According to the Baveno VI consensus, for those with high-risk varices (varies needing treatment), either non-selective beta blockers or endoscopic ...
Elastography is an imaging of tissue elasticity or stiffness and is currently emerging as a mainstream tool for ultrasound-based diagnosis. This compressibility property of materials, mathematically expressed as the change in tissue displacement as a function of its distance from the compressing device, is known as strain and is the parameter that is imaged in an elastogram. Elastography has currently shown promising result in differentiating viscoelastic nature of vario...
To perform an receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis, define a threshold and quantify the sensitivity and specificity of US SWE for risk stratification of patients into three categories as defined by the European Bone Marrow Transplant (EBMT) adult and pediatric criteria: no sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS), mild to moderate SOS, and severe to very severe SOS. Secondarily, the investigators would also like to quantify the temporal relationship between US SWE chan...
The objective of the study is to evaluated the evolution of the LLE ratio (Lung to Liver Elastography ratio) during normal pregnancy
patient with liver cirrhosis was supposed to have autoanticoagulation which approved to be wrong, with absence of conventional method to detect all abnormalities in coagulation state. Thromboelastography (TEG) give a broad picture for the coagulation defects. In addition to that no guidelines prescribed anticoagulants for venous thromboembolism in cirrhotic, so the investigators will do a study to demonstrate frequency and risk factors for acute venous thromboembolism in cirrh...
This is a prospective, single-center, non-randomised, non-blinded trial with US Elastography of Patients referred to our institution to assess soft tissue and organ lesions. All patients will undergo next to the clinical indicated conventional US-examination, US Elastography after informed consent. After completion of these three examinations, the participation in the study is completed.
Investigators intend to assess the utility of regular albumin infusions to maintain a targeted serum albumin level of 4.0 g/dl in newly detected cirrhotic patients with low albumin levels (
Multicenter, open-label, safety and tolerability study of ascending doses of HepaStem in patients with cirrhotic and pre-cirrhotic non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis (NASH) to determine the safety and tolerability of ascending single and repeated doses of HepaStem administered to patients with cirrhotic and pre-cirrhotic non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis (NASH)
Recent, research has focused on the evaluation of non-invasive methods for the assessment of liver fibrosis in patients with chronic liver disease. Among these methods, transient elastography is the most promising. The method has been investigated mainly in patients with viral hepatitis. Several studies have shown, that the optimal cut-off value of TE for detection of liver cirrhosis by transient elastography is highly dependent on the aetiology of the underlying liver disease....
