WHAT DOES CIRRHOSIS OF THE LIVER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

cirrhosis of the liver

Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis /sɪˈroʊsɪs/ is a result of advanced liver disease. It is characterized by replacement of liver tissue by fibrosis and regenerative nodules. These changes lead to loss of liver function. Cirrhosis is most commonly caused by alcoholism, hepatitis B and hepatitis C, and fatty liver disease, but has many other possible causes. Some cases are idiopathic. Ascites is the most common complication of cirrhosis. It is associated with a poor quality of life, increased risk of infection, and a poor long-term outcome. Other potentially life-threatening complications are hepatic encephalopathy and bleeding from esophageal varices. Cirrhosis is irreversible, and treatment usually focuses on preventing progression and complications. In advanced stages of cirrhosis the only option is a liver transplant.
