Please answer this question for me
In a patient with liver Injury, who was previously compensated and now his liver is shrunken and cirrhotic.
What is the type of cell that proliferated to help Maintain his liver to function during the compensation phase?
Is it liver stem cell or bile duct epithelial cells?
I searched for an answer and found out that cells of the canals of Hering are the reserve compartment of liver??? And canals of Hering are in intrahepatic bile ductules? So I thought the answer is bile duct epithelial cell.
Please guys help me I have obsessions

Stellate cell proliferation result in liver fibrosis (thus decreased liver function). The q asked which cell proliferation maintained liver function? And look what I've found on Wikipedia...

stellate cell proliferation results in fibrosis but its the hepatocytes which regenerate the liver. 25% of liver cells can regenerate the whole liver back

Well I'm not sure about the answer, but the q asked about a stem cell...
