In this study, our aim was to determine the changes in values of controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) and liver stiffness measurement (LSM) after bariatric surgery. Our aim was not to make a diagnosis of liver disease. Because of this, we did not detect any cut-off point in this study. Also, cut-off levels for specific stages of hepatic fibrosis vary according to the etiology of the chronic liver diseases.
