To assess the utility of Duplex-Doppler ultrasonography (DDUS) in the evaluation of portal haemodynamics we studied 52 patients with compensated liver cirrhosis (mean age 53.9 +/- 9.2 years, males 32, females 20) diagnosed by laparoscopy and biopsy. All patients underwent laparoscopy and oesophageal-gastro-duodenoscopy (OGDS): we postulated that haemodynamically significant portal hypertension (PH) was present if varices were detected at OGDS and/or if collateral veins were revealed at… CONTINUE READING
