Presently SAAG is not being used in our clinical practice, so this study was designed to compare the diagnostic sensitivity of SAAG and AFTP in ascites related to liver cirrhosis patients.
Sensitivity of SAAG and AFTP was calculated by comparing with ultrasonographic findings (gold standard) Sensitivity % = TP / TP + FN x 100.
In our study SAAG showed a sensitivity and specificity of 100% and 95.
Sapna Vyakaranam et al, showed in their study that SAAG had maximum sensitivity (96%) and specificity of 94%.
