Cirrhosis has four different stages that encompass mild stable compensated cirrhosis, stable cirrhosis with prior decompensation, acutely decompensated cirrhosis and acute-on-chronic liver failure. A worse ALBI score has been associated to an increased mortality in a recent study involving patients with stable cirrhosis and prior decompensation.
Key words. Acute-on-Chronic liver failure, ALBI score, Cirrhosis, Liver transplantation, MELD score, PALBI score
