It is important to diagnose this condition, as it is a risk factor in developing cancer of the liver. Sometimes, complications of cirrhosis occur, indicating a deterioration of the condition: worsening jaundice, ascites, hepatic encephalopathy, infections and bleeding varices. All these complications need expert care and prompt intervention with 24 hour back-up and on-call facilities for hepatologists, radiologists and surgeons, as well as ITU facilities which are provided.
