Twenty-seven died during hospitalization with a mortality rate of 13.8%; the overall mean APACHE IV and MELD
scores were 42.32 [+ or -] 21.95, and 18.09 [+ or -] 10.55.
score was calculated using a standard formula available online, and CP score was calculated using five variables (hepatic encephalopathy, INR, ascites, bilirubin, and albumin).
The mean MELD
score was found to be higher in death group (28.5) compared to discharge group (22.03) which was statistically very significant (Table 02).
Litebulb will issue 776 million news shares, part of which for the stock portion of the transaction and the remaining nearly 430 million shares will be placed with new and existing shareholders to raise GBP3m to fund the takeover of Meld

For comparing the performances of different prognostic models and remodeling the MELD
to predict short-term mortality risk in patients with cirrhosis with pneumonia, clinical vital signs and laboratory parameters were extracted from the database.
Etiology of AKI is multifactorial including pre-, intra-, and post-OLT factors of renal and hepatic function. The development of AKI is mainly influenced by more severe degrees of preoperative hepatic insufficiency, presence of ascites, prolonged intraoperative hypotension, liver graft dysfunction, and high model for end-stage liver disease (MELD
The Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD
) score is a more sophisticated tool developed initially to assess the perioperative risk in cirrhotic candidates for transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), and is based on objective measurements (serum creatinine, total bilirubin, international normalized ratio and serum sodium) (14,15).
The model for end-stage liver disease (MELD
) is a scoring system used to predict three-month mortality in patients with advanced liver disease.
Comparative distribution of mean MELD
and MELD-Na scores among the three SGA classes are shown in Table 3.
The liver allocation system for Orthotopic Liver Transplantation (OLT) changed from the classical Child-Pugh system to MELD
score in most of the countries of the world after 2002, because direct evidence demonstrated that mortality rates of patients waiting for liver transplant were lower with implementation of MELD

Objective: To compare Model for End Stage Liver Disease (MELD
) and Child-Turcott-Pugh (CTG) scoring as predictors of survival in cirrhotic patients.
The system for prioritising adult patients on the waitlist in the USA has since changed from a status-based algorithm using the CTP scale to a system using a continuous model for end-stage liver disease (MELD
