CORELAȚII CLINICE ȘI BIOLOGICE PRIVIND VARICELE ESOFAGIENE LA PACIENȚII CU CIROZÃ HEPATICÃ COMPENSATÃ
methods: The retrospective study included 126 patients with hepatic cirrhosis (HC) CHILD
A class, assisted in Botoºani Hospital, during 2007 and 2008. Patients were clinic, biochemical,
hematological, etiological, ultrasonographic, endoscopical examined. Statistical analysis
carried out with EXCEL soft and SPSS 16.0 soft, calculating chi2, p, ROC curve, SPRI and
ASPRI values. Results: We assessed the sample characteristics using the univariate analysis:
age, the presence / absence of esophageal varices, SPRI score (limit value ³ 15.5), ASPRI
score (limit value ³ 19.3). Conclusions: Non-invasive prediction cannot exclude the endoscopic
exam in patients with compensated HC, caused especially by the virus C and alcohol
consumption. Thrombocytopenia and splenomegaly and Fibroscan exam were the best noninvasive
indicators to predict the esophageal varices.
