Core Tip Clinically significant portal hypertension (CSPH), which is defined as hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) ≥ 10 mmHg, causes major complications of cirrhosis. HVPG is invasive, so a non-invasive tool to diagnose CSPH is needed. This study of 326 Indian patients tested the diagnostic accuracy of transient elastography (TE) for detecting CSPH. We observed a significant positive correlation between TE and HVPG (rho 0.361, p < 0.001). The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve for TE in predicting CSPH was 0.740. A cut-off value of TE of 21.6 kPa best predicted CSPH with a positive predictive value of 93%. Thus, TE can be used as a non-invasive modality to assess the degree of portal hypertension.
