BACKGROUND Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is the most frequent aetiological factor of chronic gastritis (CG). The relationship between H. pylori gastritis, gastro-duodenal ulcer and some gastric cancers (adenocarcinoma, gastric MALT lymphoma) has now been proven. AIM Describe clinical, endoscopical and histological aspects of H. pylori gastritis in Côte(More)
AIM To compare the performance of the Child-Pugh-Turcott (CPT) score to that of the model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) score in predicting survival of a retrospective cohort of 172 Black African patients with cirrhosis on a short and mid-term basis. METHODS Univariate and multivariate (Cox model) analyses were used to identify factors related to(More)
To assess the effect of renal failure on the survival of black African patients with cirrhosis, we studied 132 (82 males, 50 females) cirrhotic black African patients with mean age of 47.5+/-14.4 years and mean follow-up period of 373+/-194 days. The edema and ascitis were the main reasons for admission to hospital. Renal failure was present in 30 (22.7%)(More)
Contradictory results of the accuracy of biochemical markers to predict the stage of fibrosis in black African patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) were previously published. We conducted a prospective cohort study to determine the diagnostic accuracy of aspartate aminotransferase to platelet ratio (APRI), aspartate aminotransferase to alanine(More)
Aims. To determine the usefulness of platelet count (PC), spleen diameter (SD) and platelet count/spleen diameter ratio (PC/SD ratio) for the prediction of oesophageal varices (OV) and large OV in black African patients with cirrhosis in Côte d'Ivoire. Materials and Methods. Study was conducted in a training sample (111 patients) and in a validation sample(More)
Background: The high burden of viral hepatitis B (HBV) remains a challenge in Côte d’Ivoire where patients are mostly seen in hospital at the end stage of the disease. Aim: This cross sectional study is aimed at assessing the usefulness of anamnestic findings, clinical and biological factors in predicting chronic hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) carriers(More)
BACKGROUND Spontaneous ascitic infection (SAI) is a frequent and serious complication of cirrhosis. OBJECTIVE In a retrospective study, the authors report clinical and biological data associated with SAI for cirrhotic patients in an African medical centre. METHODS Twenty-two cirrhotic patients with ascites were included in a one-year study (November(More)
