BACKGROUND Mortality after liver transplantation depends on heterogeneous recipient and donor factors. Our aim was to assess risk of death and to develop models to help predict mortality after liver transplantation. METHODS We analysed data from 34,664 first adult liver transplants from the European Liver Transplant Registry to identify factors associated(More)
Orthotopic liver retransplantation (re-OLT) is highly controversial. The objectives of this study were to determine the validity of a recently developed United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) multivariate model using an independent cohort of patients undergoing re-OLT outside the United States, to determine whether incorporation of other variables that(More)
BACKGROUND Alcoholic hepatitis is the most florid presentation of alcohol-related liver disease. In its severe form, defined by a Maddrey's discriminant function (DF) ≥32, the 28-day mortality rate is approximately 35%. A number of potential treatments have been subjected to clinical trials, of which two, corticosteroids and pentoxifylline, may have(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Predicting survival in decompensated cirrhosis (DC) is important in decision making for liver transplantation and resource allocation. We investigated whether high-resolution metabolic profiling can determine a metabolic phenotype associated with 90-day survival. METHODS Two hundred and forty-eight subjects underwent plasma metabotyping(More)
Liver disease has evolved into a complex discipline with several tiers of service delivery. Patients' needs vary at different phases of their disease, with mobility between local hospitals and specialist centres being increasingly common. Liver transplantation requirements serve as a good illustration of this fluidity and the need for service providers to(More)
