Core Tip Elastography point quantification (ElastPQ) is a non-invasive technique for assessing tissue stiffness, and was used in this study. Splenectomy is a surgical intervention for liver cirrhosis patients with hypersplenism. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of liver stiffness measurement by ElastPQ in animal models and determine the longitudinal changes in liver stiffness by ElastPQ after splenectomy at different stages of fibrosis. We conclude that liver stiffness measurements using ElastPQ can be used to dynamically monitor the changes in liver stiffness in rabbit models, and in patients, after splenectomy.
