Separate chapters assessment the average background of continual HCV in liver transplant recipients and the impression of using HCV confident donors. the quantity concludes with chapters that conceal the remedy of power HCV either sooner than and after liver transplantation with powerful anti-viral brokers. Chronic Hepatitis C Virus: classes from the earlier, Promise for the Future is a invaluable source for all physicians taking care of sufferers with continual HCV.

As expected, the presence of portal hypertension (hepatic venous pressure gradient, HVPG ³ 6 mmHg) was indicative of advanced liver fibrosis (³F2). 93. This is particularly relevant since the presence of significant fibrosis or increased portal pressure can identify those patients at risk of clinical decompensation [40]. Noninvasive Assessment of Liver Fibrosis: Promise for the Future G. Crespo et al. the incorporation of proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (which allows for the analysis of molecular tissue composition) appears to be a safe and reproducible tool for assessing hepatic fat content.

The latter is very relevant since the progression of liver fibrosis over time is commonly not linear and can be influenced by many variables [58, 59]. Thus, transversal evaluation of liver fibrosis (by means of liver biopsy or via a noninvasive test) may not provide an accurate view of the long-term outcome of a disease. The advantage of noninvasive assessments of liver fibrosis is the fact that over time these tests can be repeated during patient follow-up (Fig. 3). , clinical decompensation, HCC, and liver-related death).
