BACKGROUND Patients with cirrhosis are susceptible to sepsis, pre-disposing to the development of encephalopathy, bleeding and organ dysfunction with associated high mortality. AIM To characterise circulating neutrophil function in a cirrhotic cohort as a determinant of 90-day and 1-year mortality. METHODS Sixty-two patients with cirrhosis [49 stable (Child-Pugh A/B/C = 24%/39%/37%); 13 acute-on-chronic liver failure] were prospectively studied and compared with 11 healthy controls… CONTINUE READING
