Keywords Liver cirrhosis; Portal hypertension; Liver and spleen shear wave velocity; Acoustic radiation force impulse
Core Tip Sixty-seven patients with liver cirrhosis with portal hypertension were assessed by acoustic radiation force impulse imaging at different time points after treatment. We found that the portal hypertension was significantly affected by spleen hardness at the 3rd month after treatment [relative risk (RR) = 3.481]. At the 9th month after treatment, the prognosis was affected by liver hardness (RR = 5.241) and spleen hardness (RR = 7.829). ROC analysis revealed that the area under the curve of liver and spleen hardness might be used to predict the prognosis of patients with portal hypertension.
