Background/aim: There are various scoring systems for evaluating prognosis in patients hospitalized in intensive care units (ICUs) with hepatic encephalopathy. These include the Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) classification, Model for End-stage Liver Disease (MELD), chronic liver failure-sequential organ failure assessment (CLIF-SOFA), and Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II). In this study, we aimed to compare the various scoring systems to determine the best system for showing the prognosis of patients with a prior diagnosis of cirrhosis who were hospitalized for hepatic encephalopathy...

BACKGROUND: To improve the outcome of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), a scoring system that could predict accurately the patient and graft survival posttransplant is necessary. The aim of this study is to evaluate our previously proposed Muscle-model for end-stage liver disease (M-MELD) score and to compare it with the other available scores to find the best system that correlates with postoperative outcome after liver transplant. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the data of 199 patients who underwent LDLT from January 2010 to July 2016 and calculated the preoperative MELD, MELD Na, the product of donor age and MELD (D-MELD), M-MELD, integrated MELD, and the balance of risk (BAR) score in all patients...

Background: The European association for the study of the liver and chronic liver failure consortium (EASL-CLIF) recently proposed diagnostic criteria for acute on chronic liver failure (ACLF). There is lack of data regarding liver transplant outcomes in ACLF patients based on these criteria. The objective of this study was to determine outcome following living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) in ACLF patients. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent LDLT for ACLF based on European association for the study of the liver and chronic liver failure consortium (EASL-CLIF) diagnostic criteria (group 1) ( N  = 60) and compared them with ACLF patients who did not undergo transplantation (group 2) ( N  = 59)...

The Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) exception policy in liver transplantation is based on symptoms and clinical conditions not included in the calculated MELD score. Therefore, patients with chronic liver disease, like refractory ascites, chronic encephalopathy, recurrent cholangitis, and refractory pruritus, may benefit with extra points. The objective of this study was to establish the profile of the patients submitted to liver transplantation with MELD exceptions based on symptoms in the University Hospital Walter Cantídio, Ceara, Brazil, between the years of 2012 and 2015, analyzing donor and recipient data, with special attention to patients with refractory ascites and recurrent encephalopathy, including survival rates...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The current review aims to explain the different systems available to clinicians for predicting clinical outcomes in patients with cirrhosis. RECENT FINDINGS: Cirrhosis is the final stage of chronic liver disease and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. The most commonly utilized tools to predict outcomes in patients with cirrhosis include the following: assessing severity of portal hypertension using hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) measurements, using scoring systems such as the Model for End-stage Liver Disease (MELD) and Child-Pugh-Turcotte (CPT) scores, and recently, clinical staging systems based on cirrhosis-related clinical complications...

Background: Contribution of model for end-stage liver disease incorporating with serum sodium (MELD-Na) score in predicting acute kidney injury (AKI) after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is yet to be identified. This study assessed the prognostic value of MELD-Na score for the development of AKI following OLT. Methods: Preoperative and surgery-related variables of 321 adult end-stage liver disease patients who underwent OLT in Fuzhou General Hospital were collected...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: We aimed to evaluate the potential of hepatobiliary phase magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as parameter for assessment of hepatocellular function in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). METHODS: We collected data from 111 patients (83 male, 28 female; median, 44 years old), from March 2012 through March 2016, with a confirmed diagnosis of PSC who underwent MRI evaluation before and after injection (hepatobiliary phase) of a hepatocyte-specific contrast agent (gadoxetate disodium)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Developing an easy and reliable score for evaluating the prognosis of patients with liver cirrhosis has always been challenging for hepatologists. This study aimed to assess the lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) in comparison with the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) and Child-Pugh (CP) scores for determining the outcomes in these patients during hospital stay. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve was used to assess the efficacy of three parameters (LMR and MELD and CP scores) in determining the outcomes in 182 patients with cirrhosis...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic liver disease is prevalent in obese patients presenting for bariatric surgery and is associated with increased postoperative morbidity and mortality (M&M). There are no comparative studies on the safety of different types of bariatric operations in this subset of patients. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to compare the 30-day postoperative M&M between laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) and laparoscopic Roux-Y-gastric bypass (LRYGB) in the subset of patients with a model of end-stage liver disease (MELD) score ≥ 8...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the value of quantitative parameters of gadoxetate-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in predicting prognosis in patients with cirrhosis. METHODS: A cohort of 63 cirrhotic patients who had gadoxetate MRI and 2-year clinical follow-up was enrolled. Enhancement ratio (ER), contrast enhancement index (CEI) and contrast enhancement spleen index (CES) were calculated. The usefulness of these parameters and clinical scores, such as Child-Pugh score (CPS) and model for end stage liver disease (MELD), in predicting adverse outcomes, such as variceal bleeding (VB), hepatic encephalopathy (HE) and mortality at 2 years were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the utility of transient elastography (TE) for assessing the prognosis of patients with decompensated cirrhosis (DC). METHODS: We analyzed HIV/HCV-coinfected patients with DC who underwent TE as part of their routine follow-up between 2006 and 2015. We also calculated the liver stiffness spleen diameter-to-platelet score (LSPS), FIB-4 index, albumin, MELD score, and Child-Pugh score. The primary outcome was death. RESULTS: The study population comprised 65 patients...

The aim of this study is to investigate the predictive factors related to in-hospital mortality in patients with SBP. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of 233 SBP patients (181 males, 52 females) who were admitted to four tertiary referral hospitals between August 2002 and February 2013...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the capability of albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) and platelet-albumin-bilirubin (PALBI) grades in predicting transplant-free survival (TFS) in patients undergoing transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This single-center retrospective study included 342 ALBI and 337 PALBI patients (62% men; age 53-54 years) with cirrhosis (median MELD 15) and portal hypertension complications (variceal bleeding, 55%; ascites, 35%; other, 10%) who underwent TIPS between 1998 and 2017...

Pre-operative anaemia and the need for intra-operative transfusion have been associated with increased morbidity and mortality following cardiac and major non-cardiac surgery. Anaemia is highly prevalent in patients with severe chronic liver disease. Whether this correlates with an altered morbidity and mortality following liver transplant has not been established. METHODS: Prospectively collected data was analysed for the period 1998-2012. Donor and recipient characteristics, blood profiles and complications were recorded...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the value of the albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) score in the assessment of the disease conditions of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related acute-on-chronic liver failure (HBV-ACLF), HBV-related liver cirrhosis (HBV-LC) and HBV-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HBV-HCC). A total of 395 patients with HBV-ACLF, HBV-LC, or HBV-HCC were retrospectively studied. The ALBI, Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP), and Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) scores of the patients were calculated, and the relationships between the ALBI score and the CTP and MELD scores were investigated...
