Codelist to identify patients with advanced decompensated cirrhosis of the liver.
Decompensated cirrhosis is defined as an acute deterioration in liver function in a patient with cirrhosis and is characterised by jaundice, ascites, hepatic encephalopathy, hepatorenal syndrome or variceal haemorrhage. (Moreau et al, 2013)
The codelist takes into account the conditions which characterise advanced decompensated cirrhosis of the liver listed above as well as codes for cirrhosis.

Codelists are developed by a broad community of users for individual study purposes, which may or may not meet the needs of other studies. They should not be thought of as universal definitions of a particular condition.
We don't offer any guarantees about what they do or don't identify. Users should carefully check that any codelist meets their needs, and seek clinical input where appropriate.
