Keywords Liver cirrhosis; Decompensated; Mortality; Accuracy; Meta-analysis
Core Tip Liver cirrhosis, especially decompensated liver cirrhosis, is a common chronic disease that is also the leading cause of death among nonmalignant diseases worldwide. The poor survival of decompensated cirr­h­o­sis has pushed doctors to find more accurate prog­no­s­tic scoring systems to recognize and manage patients. No meta-analysis has focused on comparison of the prediction accuracy for those patients in the past. This study aimed to compare the test accuracy of four systems [Child-Turcotte-Pugh, Model for End-Stage Liver Disease score (MELD), MELD-Na, and MELD to Serum Sodium ratio] quantitatively and to pinpoint the more reliable scoring system for forecasting the mortality of decompensated liver cirrhosis patients clinically.
