BACKGROUND Several studies carried out in a limited number of patients demonstrated a wide range of overestimation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by serum creatinine level and creatinine clearance (Ccr) in liver disease. METHODS We simultaneously evaluated Ccr, inulin clearance, and predicted GFR calculated from serum creatinine level in 56 cirrhotic patients. Inulin clearance was considered the gold standard for GFR evaluation. RESULTS The sensitivity of serum creatinine level… Expand
