Liver Dysfunction Assessed by Model for End-Stage Liver Disease Excluding INR (MELD-XI) Scoring System Predicts Adverse Prognosis in Heart Failure


AIMS Liver dysfunction due to heart failure (HF) is often referred to as cardiac or congestive hepatopathy. The composite Model for End-Stage Liver Disease excluding INR (MELD-XI) is a robust scoring system of liver function, and a high score is associated with poor prognosis in advanced HF patients with a heart transplantation and/or ventricular assist… (More)
