          Abstract

          Cirrhosis is a major milestone in patients with chronic liver disease because of its impact on patient morbidity and mortality. Chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and hepatitis C (CHC) are important causes of cirrhosis. This systematic review examines the relevant literature and evidence to assess whether cirrhosis can be reversible in patients with cirrhosis from viral hepatitis through long viral suppression.
