Research advances in the value of ultrasound elastography in the diagnosis of gastroesophageal varices in patients with liver cirrhosis

  • The presence of gastroesophageal varices ( GOV) is one of the independent risk factors for the death of patients with chronic liver diseases, and at present, non-selective β-blockers or endoscopic treatment is recommended for the prevention of variceal bleeding in patients with chronic liver diseases at a high risk of GOV. This article describes the latest advances in the noninvasive diagnosis of GOV in patients with liver cirrhosis with the help of ultrasound elastography and points out that although new techniques such as shear wave elastography have improved screening performance, a single examination is not sufficient for clinical practice. A combination of various examinations may be more efficient and is worthy of further exploration.
