Liver Disease Or Meld Score


The end stage liver disease is a predictable survival of a patient and most probably the complication of portal hypertension. In today’s era liver disease is very common and seen in 6 out of 10 patients. The patients of liver diseases lead to the end stage of liver especially due to overexposure of alcoholism. This meld score is very helpful to measure the severity as well as the percentage of end stage liver disease of patients. The actual usage of this meld score is in liver transplant patients to check the severity and mortality rate of patients. So how this meld score works and takes data of liver patients let us discuss this in detail.


However, the MELD score is also shown to predict survival in patients with cirrhosis who have infections and variceal bleeding and as well as in patients with fulminant hepatic failure and alcoholic hepatitis. MELD is also used in selection of patients for surgery for other than liver transplantations and in determining the optimal treatment for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma who are not the candidates for the liver transplantation. Rather than the many advantages of the MELD score, there are approximately 20%-25% of patients whose survival cannot be predicted by the MELD score. It is very possible that the addition of the variables that are better determinants of liver and renal function may improve the predictive accuracy of this model. Various Efforts and the refinement and validation of the MELD score will continue.

Now we will discuss about the MELD scoring system

MELD stands for the Model for End stage of Liver disease. This is a very good scoring system to assess liver damage or the severity of chronic liver disease. It is done to predict the mortality rate of the patient . It is found to be very useful in determining the prognosis of the disease and chance of the patient to survive in the next early months. MELD scoring system uses the values of patients given as under.

  • Serum Bilirubin levels

  • Serum Creatinine levels

  • International normalized ratio for prothrombin time

  • Serum Sodium levels

3 months mortality rate based on MELD scores:

  • 40 71.3% mortality

  • 30-39 52.6% mortality

  • 20-29 19.6% mortality

  • 10-19 6.0 % mortality

  • 9 or less 1.9% mortality

This is how the meld score is important for all liver end stages so let us discuss how the patient reaches up to this meld score and how many stages the patient goes through to reach this score. Chronic liver diseases, hepatitis and alcoholic liver diseases are the stages by which a patient suffers and reaches up to this meld score. Liver disease and itching in the skin.
