This included damage to the #heart, #lungs, #kidneys, #liver, #pancreas and #spleen In almost a third of patients, damage in 2 or more organs was identified. In particular, damage to the liver, heart or lungs was associated with further organ impairment.

For patients with #cirrhosis without #liver failure, we believe in early and aggressive #treatment for #portal hypertension (increased liver pressure) with #TIPS and also knockout all big parasitic #shunts (done here with a plug) 1/3
