AIMS To correlate cirrhosis histology and Laennec fibrosis scoring with portal pressure, as determined by hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG). METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred and four patients with biopsy-proven cirrhosis and known HVPG were included in the study. Semiquantitative scoring of 12 histological parameters and quantitative assessment by morphometry for septal thickness and nodule diameter and image analysis for fibrosis were performed. Laennec histological subgrading and… CONTINUE READING
