The use of transient elastography and non-invasive serum markers of fibrosis in pediatric liver transplant recipients

from Pediatric Transplantation (login required)

The use of non-invasive markers to diagnose liver allograft fibrosis is not well established in children after LTx. TE, FT, and ELF score were performed in 117 liver-transplanted children (60M, 8.9 [0.5–18.5] yr) and 336 healthy controls. Liver biopsy was available in 36 children. Results of histology and non-invasive markers were compared using correlation coefficient or Mann–Whitney U-test as appropriate. TE correlated best with histological degree of fibrosis. more
