I do not think the "supra" bit is required in English, but, hey, as I said, I have not come across this abbreviation before!

FWIW
the pressure reading does not look good news

Hepatic Venous Pressure Gradient. The mean HVPG value in cirrhotic patients was 17.17 ± 5.66 mmHg (range 7.5-30.5 mmHg) ( Table 2 ). In cirrhotic patients, HVPG values significantly correlated, by Wilcoxon's rank-sum test, with the presence of oesophageal varices (P < 0.0001). HVPG was found to inversely correlate also with platelet count (r = -0.59, P < 0.0001). The mean HVPG value in non-cirrhotic was significantly lower than in cirrhotic patients.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Crikey, you're working hard, Liz, thank you so much. The problem with this text is that it jumps back and forth between Spanish and Catalán so I'm coming across tons of stuff I'm not familiar with. Thanks again for all your help!

Asker: Indeed, it is! And because of 6 or 7 hours' time difference my client is still oblivios to it all! Hey-ho...I'll keep going until my brain fries...


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Dr. Jason Faulkner: The English acronym is HVPG (hepatic vein pressure gradient). Cheerz, Liz!
