1. Cirrhosis is defined as widespread nodules in the liver and fibrosis. Fibrosis is excessive accumulation of scar tissue that results from ongoing inflammation and liver cell death. Scar tissue replaces normal, healthy liver tissue, preventing the liver from working as it should. The liver carries out several essential functions, such as detoxifying harmful substances in your body, purifying your blood and manufacturing vital nutrients. When cirrhosis is present, the liver no longer has the ability to perform the necessary essential functions and if not treated, will fail altogether putting the patient at risk of death. Cirrhosis is considered the end stage of any chronic liver disease.
