Cirrhosis is the ninth leading cause of mortality in the U.S., yet most sufferers do not even know they have a problem. In AGA’s Digestive Diseases Self-Education Program’s (DDSEP® 9) chapter on cirrhosis and liver transplantation by Guadalupe Garcia-Tsao, MD, Yale School of Medicine, you will learn how to:

  • Determine the extent of liver damage.
  • Manage compensated and decompensated cirrhosis.
  • Determine when a patient is a candidate for liver transplantation.

Dr. Garcia-Tsao, MD, is chief of digestive diseases for the VA-CT Healthcare System and director of the Clinical and Translational Core of the Yale Liver Center at Yale School of Medicine.

To learn more about caring for your patients with liver disease, be sure to review AGA’s latest liver disease guidelines, which includes recommendations for acute liver failure, hepatitis B reactivation, elastography, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and our Hepatitis C Care Pathway.
