Background:Renal dysfunction is a frequent problem in liver cirrhosis patients, that is linked with extended morbidity and death of patients, The severe complication of renal dysfunction in CLD patients is “hepatorenal syndrome” (HRS), which is linked with extremely limited survival time.
Objectives:Evaluating and comparing changes in liver and renal Doppler US parameters according to the severity of liver failure in liver cirrhosis patients.
Methodology:A prospective study will be conducted at “AcharyaVinobaBhave Rural Hospital, Sawangi”, involving60 patients coming to Radiology department for Doppler of liver cirrhosis will be included in the study. Abdominal ultrasound (US) will be conducted in compliance with the normal protocol, as well as liver and renal doppler US. Near the point where it reaches the principal PV, the proper hepatic artery (HA) will be examined. Pulsatility is quantified by the PI.
Results: After statistical analysis, we expect to finda relation between hepatic and renal artery variables in Doppler US.
Conclusion: In this study, we expect,“renal Doppler US parameters” associate with liver cirrhosis severity and complications. Therefore follow up of these patients is necessary with Doppler US of the renal arteries
