Pregnant women with compensated cirrhosis (the milder form of the severe liver disease) rarely experience health events related to decompensated cirrhosis (the more severe stage) within one year of delivery, according to a large Canadian study. This finding, the study authors hope, will reassure such women that their liver disease will likely hold stable through this period.

Monica Mullin, MD, a postgraduate trainee at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, presented findings from the study at the The Liver Meeting (the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases) in Boston.

North American women of childbearing age have recently seen a notable rise in the rate of cirrhosis. However, research into how pregnancy impacts the risk of liver decompensation among women with compensated cirrhosis is scarce.
