ABSTRACT
Objective To investigate the feasibility of non-invasive quantitative evaluation of portal pressure (Pp) by contrast enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS).Methods 18 portal hypertension patients (PTH group) were performed with CEUS within one week before splenectomy and pericardial devascularization,and 20 healthy volunteers as controls were recruited in this study (control group).Hepatic-right kidney sectionwas chosen to calculate the area under curve of portal vein/hepatic artery (Qp/Qa) and the perfusion intensity of portal vein/hepatic artery (Ip/Ia) through time intensity curves (TIC) of liver parenchyma generated from CEUS images.Pp was measured by intra-operative mesenteric vein catheter,and the correlation betweenPp and Qp/Qa,Ip/Ia were analyzed by Pearson correlation test.Results The levels of Qp/Qa and Ip/Ia in the PTH group were 2.28 ± 0.66 and 0.35 ± 0.14 respectively,which were both significantly declined than that in the controlgroup (5.72 ± 3.69 and 1.97 ± 0.17).In the PTH group,the correlation coefficient were-0.747 and-0.617,and the linear regression equations were Y =-83 X + 5.013 andY =-15X + 0.837,which indicated that Qp/Qa and Ip/Ia had significant correlation with Pp.Conclusions CEUS parameters,including Qp/Qa and Ip/Ia,are significantly correlated to Pp in portal hypertension patients,which indicate that CEUS could be a new non-invasive clinical method for evaluating Pp.
