Abstract

Objective: To analyze the quality of life of patients with cirrhosis after portosystemic shunting. Material and methods: The study included 32 patients with cirrhosis of the liver with portal hypertension before and after portosystemic shunting. A special questionnaire developed by Younossi Z.M. et al. (1999) for patients with chronic liver disease - The Chronic Liver Disease Questionnaire. Results: It has been proved that portosystemic shunting not only does not impair the quality of life index of patients with the threat of bleeding from varicose veins of the esophagus and stomach, but also somewhat improves this value. In the remote period after shunting, a progressive pathological process in the liver contributes to the development of the functional inferiority of hepatocytes, which, under conditions of adequate decompression, is the main cause of the fatal outcome of the disease. This trend is obtained in all parameters of the assessment of the quality of life index with a gradual deterioration in performance as the observation period increases. Conclusions: A progressive pathological process in the liver contributes to the development of the functional inferiority of hepatocytes, which, under conditions of adequate decompression, is the main cause of the fatal outcome of the disease.
