Liver Transplantation in Patients with Cirrhosis and Severe Acute-on-Chronic Liver Failure (ACLF)
Cirrhosis is a disease that causes scar tissue to form in the liver. ACLF is a chronic liver disease that causes liver failure. Research is needed to better understand how people respond to liver transplantation with the combination of these conditions. The information we learn will help us improve the care of people with Cirrhosis and Severe Acute-on-Chronic liver disease.
