  • BACKGROUND Obesity is thought to be associated with higher rates of morbidity and mortality after liver transplantation (LT); however, its actual impact is difficult to evaluate, in part because of the confounding effects of fluid accumulation on body mass index (BMI). OBJECTIVE We sought to define the effects of conventional BMI (cBMI) and modified BMI (mBMI; calculated by multiplying the BMI by serum albumin level to compensate for fluid accumulation), on the outcome of LT recipients… CONTINUE READING
