BACKGROUND/AIMS The albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) score is a new model for assessing the severity of liver dysfunction. In the present study, we aimed to retrospectively compare the performance of ALBI with Child-Pugh and the model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) scores for predicting the in-hospital mortality of acute gastrointestinal bleeding (AUGIB) in(More)
BACKGROUND QTc interval prolongation is an electrocardiographic abnormality in liver cirrhosis. The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence, risk factors and in-hospital outcomes of QTc interval prolongation in Chinese patients with liver cirrhosis. METHODS This was a retrospective analysis of a total of 1,268 patients with liver cirrhosis(More)
