Keywords Liver cirrhosis; Elderly patients; Quality of life; Aging
Core Tip The increasing aging population is a worldwide issue and societies are facing various problems including long-term care for populations with a high prevalence of chronic conditions including the liver diseases. It is clear that management of hepatitis and cirrhosis is important to maintain hepatic function as well as activities of daily living and quality of life of liver disease patients. While various therapeutic options have been available including newly developed medicines and techniques, the aging-related parameters must be considered in the decision making for therapeutic strategies and dosage of the available medicine. However, as there is no information available to date in this field, to fill this gap, we have summarized the points that must be considered upon the management of liver cirrhosis in elderly patients. The information summarized will be helpful for physicians treating the elderly patients with the understanding of the aging-related changes of the body and organs.
