LIVER CIRRHOSIS Overview

WHAT IS LIVER CIRRHOSIS ?


Cirrhosis of the liver also known as hepatic cirrhosis is a late stage of scarring of the liver in which the normal liver cells are replaced by scar tissues. Every time the liver is injured; it tries to heal itself by forming scar tissues. Advance scarring leave the liver with more scar tissues and less normal hepatic cells thus causing impaired liver function. It caused by many forms of liver diseases and conditions such as hepatitis and chronic alcoholism. The damage done to the liver is irreversible so early detection is very important.


RISK FACTORS


  • Alcohol: if consumed more would damage the liver. To metabolise the alcohol taken; liver enzymes work on the alcohol. So more alcohol would damage the liver cells and liver would try to repair the injury with scar tissues.
  • Obesity: would cause non alcoholic fatty liver thus would increase the risk of cirrhosis
  • Hepatitis: infection would damage the liver cells which would be compensated by scarring.

COMPLICATIONS


  • Portal hypertension: is increased blood pressure in the veins that supply blood to the liver as due to cirrhosis; the blood flow through the liver becomes slow.
  • Bleeding: can occur as small veins may burst due to increased pressure in them as blood is redirected to small veins by the portal veins due to sluggish flow in liver.
  • Splenomegaly: is increase in size of spleen. Cirrhosis causes portal hypertension which causes swelling of spleen.
  • Infections: cirrhosis decreases the ability of the body to fight with the infection so body is more prone to get more infections.
  • Malnutrition: due to cirrhosis the body is not able to utilize the nutients. This would further cause loss of weight and weakness.
  • Jaundice: liver metabolises bilirubin and excretes it out of the body. But in cirrhosis the liver is not able to workout the bilirubin thus jaundice develops
  • Increase risk of liver cancer: cirrhosis increases the risk of development of cirrhosis.
  • Weak bones: due to lack of assimilation of nutients the bones also become weak and chances of bone diseases increase.
  • Hepatic encephalopathy: due to build up of toxin in the blood (as the liver is not able to metabolise them), the toxins can build up in brain as well causing mental confusion and difficulty in concentration as well.
