Abstract: OBJETIVOS: Correlacionar os achados da biópsia transcutanea hepática guiada por ultrassonografia com os dados ultrassonográficos modo B e Doppler da veia hepática direita; comparar os padr es de onda entre os grupos de estudo (hepatopatas) e controle (sadios); e avaliar se o Doppler da veia hepática direita serve como marcador de hepatopatia cr nica. MéTODOS: Foram estudados 38 pacientes portadores de hepatopatia cr nica comprovada por sorologia e biópsia (grupo de estudo) e dez pacientes sem hepatopatia sorológica (grupo controle), avaliados pela ultrassonografia modo B e Doppler. Os critérios histológicos foram a classifica o da Sociedade Brasileira de Patologia de Hepatite Cr nica. RESULTADOS: A ultrassonografia modo B e o Doppler diferenciaram os indivíduos portadores de hepatopatia cr nica dos normais (p=0,047). Houve diferen a significativa entre o grupo de estudo e o controle na compara o entre os achados histopatológicos, ultrassonográficos modo B e o Doppler nos padr es de onda da veia hepática direita (p=0,001). CONCLUS O: Foi possível correlacionar a biópsia hepática com a ultrassonografia modo B e o Doppler da veia hepática direita; os hepatopatas apresentaram altera o no fluxo da veia hepática direita e os normais n o, sendo que o padr o de onda nos controles saudáveis foi trifásico e nos hepatopatas bifásico ou monofásico; e o Doppler da veia hepática direita serviu como marcador de hepatopatia cr nica. OBJECTIVE: To correlate chronic liver disease diagnosed by transcutaneous liver biopsy guided by ultrasound, with ultrasound findings with B-mode and Doppler of the right hepatic vein; 2) to compare the wave patterns between the study group and the control group; 3) to compare the right hepatic vein Doppler findings with histopathology findings as a possible marker of chronic liver disease. METHODS: Were studied 38 patients with chronic liver disease diagnosed by biopsy and serology (study group) and 10 persons without serologic liver disease (control group), assessed only by ultrasound B-mode and Doppler. The criteria were based on histology classification of the Brazilian Society of Pathology for chronic hepatitis. Chi-square, Fisher's exact and Student t tests were used. RESULTS: The B-mode and Doppler ultrasound were useful in inferring the differentiation between individuals with chronic liver disease from normal. There were significant differences between the study group and the controls when comparing the histopathology findings, ultrasound B-mode and Doppler in relationship to the wave patterns of the right hepatic vein.
