Cirrhosis-related mortality rates increasing in U.S. since 2009

Cirrhosis-related mortality increased in the U.S. since 2009 with rates varying by age, ethnicity and region, according to a recently published report.
“Projected increases in the burden of cirrhosis are thought to be driven primarily by the increasing prevalence of alcoholic liver disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease,” Elliot B. Tapper, MD, and Neehar D. Parikh, MD, from the University of Michigan, wrote. “The incidence and impact of cirrhosis related complications is uneven across the USA, with substantial geographic and demographic variability.”
