Cirrhosis Liver

Introduction of Cirrhosis of Liver

Cirrhosis of the liver is a process where liver tissue is replaced with scar tissue. It is a gradual process. The scar tissue affects the typical structure of the liver and the liver cells’ regrowth.

Liver cirrhosis treatment involves conducting a thorough examination and taking a detailed history of the patient; following that, all the blood tests and scans can detect both the extent of liver disease and the condition of other organ systems. CT/MRI is usually recommended for specific conditions.

There’s no specific treatment for liver cirrhosis. However, they may treat complications secondary to cirrhosis. Some disorders that cause cirrhosis can be cured. Treating the underlying causes of cirrhosis may keep your cirrhosis from getting worse. It also helps in preventing liver failure. Successful treatment may slowly help in improving some of your liver scarring.
