Incidence, etiology and mortality of cirrhosis: a population-based cohort study

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Knowledge on the prognosis among patients with cirrhosis is mainly based on clinical trials with selected patient groups as well as population-based register studies with suboptimal diagnostic reliability. The aim of the study was to describe incidence, etiology, and mortality of well-validated cirrhotic cases in a population-based cohort at Funen (population 470,000) between 1996 and 2006.
