Abstract

The aim of this study was to identify possible clinical, biochemical or instrumental markers which can predict in a non-invasive manner the presence of EV. One hundred and fifty-eight consecutive liver cirrhotic patients seen at our out-patient clinic were included in this study. The diagnosis of LC was done on liver biopsy findings or based on instrumental, clinical and serological data. Patients underwent EGE, ultrasound of the upper abdomen, Doppler of the main splancnic vessels and the main parameters of liver function were tested. Liver cirrhosis was mostly correlated to hepatitis C virus and most patients were class A according to Child. At EGE, EV were absent in 41 patients, grade 1 in 86 patients, while 22 and 9 patients presented varices grade 2 and 3, respectively. When patients were divided according to the presencelabsence of varices, statistically significant differences regarding prothrombin activity values (p
