HVPG measurement is the gold standard for assessing portal hypertension. Many patients decline HVPG measurements due to associated pain. According to previous studies, propofol sedation during HVPG measurements potentially alters HVPG readings. However, opioid analgesics' effects on HVPG await full elucidation. This study aimed to evaluate fentanyl analgesia's effects on HVPG measurement accuracy in patients with cirrhosis.
