Figure 1 Variability of histological specimens in HE (top) and PicroSirius red (bottom) stained transjugular biopsy specimens. A: Non-cirrhotic sample with 0.01% fibrosis proportion; B: Cirrhotic sample with 21% of fibrosis proportion.

Figure 2 Correlation between hepatic venous pressure gradient and fibrosis density measured by collagen proportionate area. A: Correlation between HVPG and fibrosis density measured by CPA in the whole group of patients; B: Subgroup analysis showing a positive correlation between CPA and HVPG restricted to active alcohol drinkers. HVPG: Hepatic venous pressure gradient; CPA: Collagen proportionate area.
