The hypothesis of thyroid involvement in the haemodynamic alterations of cirrhosis was evaluated. We measured thyroid volume (thrV), free triiodiothyronine (FT3), free thyroxin (FT4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), resistance index (thrRI) and pulsatility index (thrPI) in the inferior thyroid artery in 45 cirrhotic patients of different aetiologies and Child class, and in 13 healthy subjects. Portal vein velocity, flow, diameter and hepatic, splenic, and renal arterial resistance indices… CONTINUE READING
