Wedged hepatic venous pressure recording and venography were investigated to assess histologic reflection of the stage of chronic liver disease. Forty-nine patients were studied. The four main groups and the means of the pressure gradients (WHVP - FHVP) with their 95% confidence limits were chronic active hepatitis (n = 12), 6 mm Hg (4.35-7.65); chronic hepatitis in transition to cirrhosis (n = 9), 10.3 mm Hg (6.6-14.1); and established cirrhosis (n = 8), 15.4 mm Hg (9.4-21.4); but only 3.4 mm… CONTINUE READING
