Liver collagen proportionate area (CPA) assessed by computer-assisted digital image analysis has been proposed as an accurate and objective histological variable for subclassifying cirrhosis. The study aimed to examine the relationship between CPA and relevant clinical parameters in cirrhotic patients and to evaluate the sampling variability for CPA. The study included 48 consecutive liver transplantation patients with established cirrhosis. Hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) and serum… CONTINUE READING
