Dr. Lukas Burghart showed the important prognostic value of portal hypertension (CSPH) in patients with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). Importantly, CSPH may occur early in disease, and a combined score of liver stiffness <15kPa and platelet count ≥150 G/L can rule out CSPH in PBC and, in turn, indicates a favorable long-term prognosis.
