En ciertos casos es mas complicado determinar cuales han sido las causas que han desencadenado la cirrosis. Esta fase es irreversible. Lo mas importante es prevenirla no abusando en la ingesta de alcohol y previniendo las hepatitis B o C, dos de sus causas mas frecuentes. I was very happy to uncover this page.

Its main characteristic is low life expectancy. In Mexico, it is the second leading cause of death in the age group with the highest work productivity. Methods : The study is observational, retrospective, descriptive and cross-sectional. Data were collected on age, sex, occupation, origin, risk factors for liver damage and probable etiology of patients referred with a diagnosis of cirrhosis in a period of 2 years.

Purpose : To determine the causes and factors associated with liver cirrhosis in our population. Results : Females prevailed over males by Average age was The following risk factors were found: alcohol consumption Housewives were most affected Alcoholism in Portal hypertension data were found in The prevalence during the study period was 9.

Conclusions : There are significant differences observed in gender and cause of cirrhosis in this study. In the future more research should be done to look into the conditions under which women live in the city of Tuxtla Gutierrez, as well as whether other idiosyncratic factors or cultural conditions are leading to a higher prevalence of cirrhosis in this population group in the Southeast of Mexico.

Cirrosis hepática

Liver fibrogenesis is the result of excessive tissue repair of chronic liver damage. This entity consists of the progressive extracellular matrix deposition in the liver parenchyma that is observed in most chronic liver diseases and which precedes the development of cirrhosis. In the last few years, several studies have identified activated stellate cells, portal fibroblasts, and myofibroblasts from distinct cell populations as the main collagen-producing cells in the damaged liver. Likewise, the main cytokines and molecules involved in liver fibrogenesis have been identified. The finding that advanced liver fibrogenesis can be reversed has stimulated research into possible antifibrogenic therapies.



Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte disorder in patients with cirrhosis. In dilutional or hypervolemic hyponatremia, serum sodium concentration is reduced, plasma volume is increased although the effective plasma volume is decreased due to marked arterial vasodilation in the splanchnic circulation and extracellular fluid volume is increased, with ascites and edema in the absence of signs of dehydration. This is a result of the marked deterioration in renal excretion of solute-free water, leading to disproportionate water retention in relation to sodium retention. Since hypervolemic hyponatremia is by far the most frequent form of this disorder, the present chapter will concentrate specifically on hypervolemic hyponatremia in cirrhosis..
