Literature Search

We searched two databases—PubMed and Google Scholar—for English language studies from database inception until January 2021, using the key words "liver cirrhosis," "chronic liver disease," "acute coronary syndrome," "ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)," and "non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI)." Furthermore, a few articles were accessed through a manual search using the reference list of the search results. We also searched for meta-analyses, observational studies, practice guidelines, and reviews. The inclusion criteria for the final review comprised the studies available in the full-text form in the English-language literature.
