Knowledge about non-invasive diagnostic tests for varices in liver cirrhosis: A questionnaire survey to the Gastroenterology Branch of the Liaoning Medical Association, China.

Qi X, Guo X, Li H, Liu X, Deng H - Gastroenterol Rep (Oxf) (2015)

Bottom Line: In 46.3% of participants' departments, there were >200 patients with liver cirrhosis and gastroesophageal varices admitted every year.In 90.2% of participants' departments, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was regularly employed for the diagnosis of gastroesophageal varices.Reliable, non-invasive indexes should be further explored in a well-designed multi-center observational study.

gov031-F3: Knowledge about the non-invasive diagnostic tests of varices according to the number of non-invasive methods that the participant knew.

Mentions: Regarding the 16th question, 30 participants knew at least one non-invasive diagnostic test for varices (73.2%, 30/41) (Figure 3). The proportion of participants who knew at least one non-invasive diagnostic test for varices was significantly associated with the number of cirrhotic patients with varices (P = 0.038) and the regular use of gastrointestinal endoscopy to diagnose varices (P = 0.022) but not with the number of beds in the participants’ departments (P = 0.353) or the number of cirrhotic patients (P = 0.321). In addition, the proportion might not be associated with the number of beds in the participants’ hospital or the use of endoscopic treatment (Figure 4).Figure 3.
