A model to predict survival in patients with end-stage liver disease.
A recent mandate emphasizes severity of liver disease to determine priorities in allocating organs for liver transplantation and necessitates a disease severity index based on generalizable,… Expand

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS) may worsen liver function and decrease survival in some patients. The Child‐Pugh classification has several drawbacks when used to determine… Expand
Model for end-stage liver disease (MELD) and allocation of donor livers.
BACKGROUND & AIMS A consensus has been reached that liver donor allocation should be based primarily on liver disease severity and that waiting time should not be a major determining factor. Our aim… Expand
Splanchnic artery aneurysms.
Autopsy studies suggest that splanchnic artery aneurysms may be more frequent than abdominal aortic aneurysms. These aneurysms are important to recognize because up to 25% may be complicated by… Expand
The model for end‐stage liver disease (MELD)
The Model for End‐stage Liver Disease (MELD) was initially created to predict survival in patients with complications of portal hypertension undergoing elective placement of transjugular intrahepatic… Expand

BACKGROUND Under the current liver-transplantation policy, donor organs are offered to patients with the highest risk of death. METHODS Using data derived from all adult candidates for primary… Expand
Acute-on chronic liver failure.
Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is an increasingly recognised entity encompassing an acute deterioration of liver function in patients with cirrhosis, which is usually associated with a… Expand
Evidence-based incorporation of serum sodium concentration into MELD.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Serum sodium (Na) concentrations have been suggested as a useful predictor of mortality in patients with end-stage liver disease awaiting liver transplantation. METHODS We… Expand
