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

Abstract

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)
