Marcio F. Chedid, Rafael V. Picon, Aljamir D. Chedid

Abstract

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
