For this reason there can be bleeding associated with liver disease. People with liver failure or cirrhosis will commonly bleed after surgery or into the GI tract. Unexplained bruising or easy bruising is a common finding. A blood test, the PT/INR, is used to measure the risk of bleeding. Plasma transfusions are commonly used, and a few will need liver transplantation.
