Prospective validation of two models for ultrasonographic diagnosis of cirrhosis. Hospital Universitario Puerta del Mar. La reproducibilidad de ambas escalas es excelente.
Objective: to perform a prospective validation and comparative analysis of two ultrasonographic diagnostic scores of cirrhosis in patients with silent liver disease. Design: cross-sectional study, prospective and blind.
ROC curves evaluated the diagnostic utility of: a Bologna score BS : assessment of liver surface nodularity and portal flow velocity, and b Cadiz score CS : assessment of liver echostructure, portal vein caliber and spleen area.
Liver biopsy was considered the gold standard for the diagnosis of cirrhosis. Patients: one hundred and thirteen patients, 76 men and 37 women, mean age 44 years old range years referred for evaluation of chronic liver disease without clinical or biochemical evidence of advanced disease absence of jaundice, ascites, encephalopathy, malnutrition or coagulopathy.
Results: cirrhosis was diagnosed in 25 patients These results agree with those obtained in the original articles developing both scores. There were no statistically significant differences between the two scores.
Conclusions: presence or absence of cirrhosis in patients with silent liver disease can be established by Doppler ultrasound with high diagnostic accuracy. The joint use of both scores has high diagnostic specificity. Both diagnostic models are highly reproducible. Key words: Chronic hepatitis. Liver cirrhosis. Portal hypetension.
Doppler ultrasound. Se analizaron las 5 variables incluidas en los modelos de Gaiani y cols. De los 88 restantes, 33 no presentaban fibrosis en la biopsia, 36 presentaban estadio F1, 17 F2 y 2 F3.
Esto es especialmente importante en el estudio de pacientes con ascitis de origen incierto, para el que no es aplicable el fibroscan. Ana de Viya, A comparison of the accuracy of peritoneoscopy and liver biopsy in the diagnosis of cirrhosis.
