Keywords Survival; Decompensation; Hepatocellular carcinoma; Bleeding; Ascites
Core Tip Hepatitis C was the most common cause in our cirrhotics and many hepatitis C virus patients were aged and demonstrated a long, mild course. Alcoholic and non alcoholic steatohepatitis cirrhosis is becoming a significant problem. Ascites was the commonest type of decompensation. Survival in compensated cirrhotics was at least double that of decompensated patients. Variceal bleeding was more frequent in alcoholics; nevertheless it was unexpectedly related to better survival than decompensation with ascites or encephalopathy. This was attributed to the improvements in the management of variceal bleeding together with the importance of abstinence from alcohol after the episode was successfully treated. Hepatocellular carcinoma patients with a history of hepatitis B virus had the highest risk of mortality.
