Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Luminosity on ultrasound [ Time Frame: Once at the time of the endoscopic ultrasound ]

Enrollment: 7
Study Start Date: December 2004
Study Completion Date: December 2016
Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
Patients with Hepatitis C Cirrhosis
Patients with Hepatitis C Cirrhosis

Detailed Description:

Background: Transabdominal ultrasound cannot be used to quantitate fibrosis in patients with cirrhosis due to variability in the abdominal wall thickness and composition. This variability can be eliminated by using endoscopic ultrasound.

Aim: To determine the amount of fibrosis in the liver of hepatitis C patients with advanced fibrosis, using endoscopic ultrasound.
