Key Words Direct-acting antiviral agents; Liver stiffness; Portal hypertension; Hepatocellular carcinoma
Core Tip Direct-acting antiviral agents leads to hepatitis C virus eradication and to the regression of liver inflammation. However, they do not eliminate the risk of possible portal hypertension-related complications and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), rising the necessity of post-sustained virological response surveillance and development of non-invasive predictive models to detect the categories of patients requiring more intensive follow-up. Many studies reported a significant reduction in liver fibrosis markers after treatment with direct-acting antiviral drugs. Ultrasound elastography is gaining a growing importance as a predictive element in the assessment of the risk of developing esophageal varices or gastrointestinal bleeding, liver functional decompensation and HCC.
