Transient elastography: a new noninvasive method for assessment of hepatic fibrosis.
Liver elasticity measurements were reproducible, operator-independent and well correlated and the intra- and interoperator reproducibility of the technique, as well as its ability to quantify liver fibrosis, were evaluated in 106 patients with chronic hepatitis C. Expand
Noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis by measurement of stiffness in patients with chronic hepatitis C
Noninvasive assessment of liver stiffness with transient elastography appears as a reliable tool to detect significant fibrosis or cirrhosis in patients with chronic hepatitis C. Expand
Accuracy of liver stiffness measurement for the diagnosis of cirrhosis in patients with chronic liver diseases
Fibroscan is a reliable method for the diagnosis of Cirrhosis in patients with chronic liver diseases, better at excluding than at predicting cirrhosis using a threshold of 14.6 kPa, and false‐negatives are mainly attributable to inactive or macronodular cirrhoses. Expand
Assessment of biliary fibrosis by transient elastography in patients with PBC and PSC
Noninvasive measurement of liver stiffness with transient elastography has been recently validated for the evaluation of hepatic fibrosis in chronic hepatitis C. The current study assessed theExpand
Diagnosis of Hepatic Fibrosis and Cirrhosis by Transient Elastography in HIV/Hepatitis C Virus-Coinfected Patients
Liver stiffness measurement is a promising noninvasive method for the assessment of fibrosis in HIV-infected patients with chronic HCV infection and its use for the follow-up of these patients should be further evaluated. Expand
Eradication of Hepatitis C Virus Infection in Patients With Cirrhosis Reduces Risk of Liver and Non-Liver Complications.
A reduction in critical events, liver-related or not, was confirmed in the CirVir cohort, a prospective study of patients with HCV infection and compensated cirrhosis included in the ANRS cohort who achieved an SVR, to reduce overall mortality and risk of death from liver- related and non-liver-related causes. Expand
Features associated with success rate and performance of FibroScan measurements for the diagnosis of cirrhosis in HCV patients: a prospective study of 935 patients.
After a rapid training, FibroScan provides a reasonable performance for the diagnosis of cirrhosis that is not influenced substantially by any other feature. Expand
Assessment of liver fibrosis using transient elastography in patients with alcoholic liver disease.
LSM accurately assesses extensive fibrosis and cirrhosis in alcoholic patients, and fibrosis was the only parameter correlated with LSM in multivariate analysis. Expand
Liver stiffness measurement as a predictive tool of clinically significant portal hypertension in patients with compensated hepatitis C virus or alcohol‐related cirrhosis
This data indicates that liver stiffness measurement is a non‐invasive method for liver fibrosis assessment and Hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) is the gold standard for assessing the presence and the severity of portal hypertension (PHT). Expand
The Enteropathy Associated With Common Variable Immunodeficiency: The Delineated Frontiers With Celiac Disease
Several distinctive features differentiate CVID enteropathy from other causes of enteropathy including CS, and replacement i.v. Ig therapy is insufficient to improve gastrointestinal symptoms. Expand
