Q : WHAT IS THE BURDEN OF LIVER DISEASE IN MALAYSIA?
Liver disease is a major component of digestive diseases in our country. Liver Cirrhosis is an important cause of burden of illness in the digestive disorder group. (ref: Malaysian Burden of Disease And Injury Study-Health Prioritization: Burden Of Disease Approach. ISBN 983-99320-1-2). Also, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the top 10 cancers amongst Malaysian males and most of such cases are associated with hepatitis B. There is a lot we can do to ensure that Malaysians are screened for HCC and that complications of portal hypertension are detected early and managed accordingly. The spectrum of liver diseases is huge and managing these diseases is very challenging. Selayang hospital is the only dedicated hepatobiliary centre in this country and will provide you with ample opportunities and training in the management of both simple and complex hepatobiliary cases.
