The usefulness in cirrhotic patients of hemodynamic measurements by Doppler ultrasonography (US) is still not defined. We investigated the relationships between Doppler measurements and the severity of ascites. Portal blood flow velocity and volume, and hepatic and renal arterial resistance indexes (RI) were measured in 57 cirrhotic patients (19 without ascites, 28 with responsive ascites, and 10 with refractory ascites) and 15 healthy controls. The renal arterial RI were obtained for the main… CONTINUE READING
