AIM To study the value of biochemical and ultraso-nographic parameters in prediction of presence and size of esophageal varices. METHODS The study includes selected cirrhotic patients who underwent a complete biochemical workup, upper digestive endoscopic and ultrasonographic examinations. Albumin/right liver lobe diameter and platelet count/spleen diameter ratios were calculated. The correlation between calculated ratio and the presence and degree of esophageal varices was evaluated… CONTINUE READING
