OBJECTIVE Aspartate aminotransferase-to-platelet ratio index (APRI), aspartate aminotransferase-to-alanine aminotransferase (AST/ALT) ratio, platelet count, AST, albumin, bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase were retrospectively evaluated for the prediction of advanced liver fibrosis and cirrhosis in patients with resectable hepatocellular carcinoma in this study. PATIENTS In total, the 97 selected patients consisted of 9 (9.3%) patients with non-B, non-C chronic hepatitis, 48 (49.5%) patients… CONTINUE READING
