Gastroenterology Podcast January 2013: When the Spleen Gets Tough, the Varices Get Going

Two papers in the January issue of Gastroenterology, as well as a number of other recent publications, seek to identify noninvasive tests that can evaluate patients w/ cirrhosis for complications such as portal hypertension and varices. Dr. Kuemmerle speaks to the co-author of an editorial in the January issue about these studies, Dr. Guadalupe Garcia-Tsao of the Yale University School of Medicine..




(NOTE: The January print issue of Gastroenterology promotes a different article for this month's podcast, due to a scheduling change after the issue went to press. We apologize for any confusion).
