In those patients in whom it was performed, biopsy enabled the evolutionary stage of the disease to be established, other additional causes of liver disease to be discarded, and the subgroup of patients who could have a poorer prognosis to be diagnosed.


This can probably be explained by the effect of treatment on the evolution of the AH and the predictive ability of the changes in the different variables after 7 days, as has been described in other series 26, This retrospective study focused on analyzing the predictive ability of indices that can be calculated with data usually available in the medical record, although recent studies have also examined the role of liver biopsy 24 not available in our patients when the diagnosis was clear using clinical and laboratory criteria and portal hypertension Alcoholic liver disease adult.

Treatment data recorded were the doses of steroids and enteral nutrition EN received and the duration of treatment, as well as the prophylactic antibiotic regimens. All of the current prognostic indices, with the exception of the Glasgow score, were shown to be effective in our series when assessing the risk of mortality, with the MELD score being the most reliable.

Corticosteroid plus pentoxifylline i s not better than corticosteroid alone for improving survival in severe alcoholic hepatitis COPE trial. The aims of this study were to identify, in our cohort, the independent prognostic factors that influenced the in-hospital, 6-month and long-term mortality after an episode of severe AH, and to evaluate the usefulness of the various prognostic indices in our group. The inefficacy of the Glasgow score may be because neither age nor the white blood cell count were independent risk factors in our series.

The mean mortality rate during the first month was This interesting question could not be explored in our sample as we do not have a liver hemodynamic unit in our hospital.

CiteScore measures average citations received per document published. However, it must be mentioned that at the time of admission, there was a group of patients with an ABIC score less than 6. Only MELD score and urea values at 7 days were independent predictors of survival twelve months after the acute hepatitis episode. SRJ is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same.
