Hepatitis C: The Impact of Hepatitis C Beyond the Liver
Recorded on April 5, 2017
Sponsored by Abbvie
It is known that Hepatitis C is a progressive liver disease that can lead to advanced fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. What is less understood is that patients infected with the Hepatitis C virus are at an increased risk for other diseases such as renal disease, cardiovascular disorders, and Type 2 Diabetes. It is important that managed care professionals understand the impact that the Hepatitis C virus has not only on the liver, but also on other organ systems.
This educational webinar will explorer the available information on this topic and answer the following questions:
- What extrahepatic manifestations are associated with HCV?
- What is the pathophysiology behind extrahepatic manifestations?
- What risk do HCV infected patients have of developing specific extrahepatic manifestations?
- What is the cost associated with extrahepatic manifestations?
