Gastroesophageal varices are a complication of portal hypertension in cirrhosis.Endoscopy is an unsatisfactory screening test.In this prospective clinical study,we will enroll patients with cirrhosis of various causes, all of whom undergo laboratory tests, elastography, and serum proteomic differential protein testing, including liver elastography (LSM) and spleen elastography (SSM). Baveno VI or expanded BavenoVI criteria are validated by comparing patients' LSM, SSM, serum differential protein, platelet count, and EGD data to evaluate the clinical value of SSM and differential proteins in excluding cirrhosis of cirrhosis.At the same time, based on SSM and serum differential protein, a new predictive model of variceal varices will be established to evaluate the diagnostic value of SSM and differential protein for esophagogastric varices, and a non-invasive method for reliably predicting and evaluating cirrhosis with esophageal varices will be found.
