  • Portal Cirrhosis

    Abstract The pathogenesis, as well as the treatment, of edema and ascites in portal cirrhosis has been a subject of utmost interest and continuous investigation.[annals.org] Liver cirrhosis: Liver cirrhosis with an inhomogeneous liver with irregular contour and ascites and splenomegaly Liver cirrhosis: Liver cirrhosis with an irregular liver contour[ultrasoundcases.info] If we are talking about esophageal varices due to alcoholic cirrhosis, then alcoholic cirrhosis would be PDX (k70.30), followed by esophageal varices (I85.11) if esophageal[aapc.com]
