AASLD Practice Guidelines Pocket Cards

AASLD strives to review and update its Practice Guidelines every five (5) years, as necessary.  Users are cautioned that in the interim, scientific and medical developments may supercede or invalidate, in whole or in part, specific recommendations in any Guideline. A Guideline is considered to be "inactive" if it has not been updated by AASLD in at least five (5) years, and for this reason particular care must be exercised in placing reliance on an inactive Guideline.
