Through a case-based approach, the text reviews new data and studies about the role of microbiota in liver disease and hepatic encephalopathy, explores the burden of hepatic encephalopathy on readmissions, costs, and patient care, and highlights management strategies for patients in differing stages of hepatic encephalopathy. Exploratory new therapies and treatment targets are also discussed in the guide.
