Investigators suggested that 16.6 kPa is the best liver stiffness threshold on vibration-controlled transient elastography to predict disease development from bridging fibrosis to cirrhosis. Also, 30.7 kPa predicted liver-related events like ascites, portal hypertension-linked gastrointestinal bleeding, hepatic encephalopathy, liver transplantation and death.
