10. New risk calculator better predicts renal outcomes after liver transplant
From Nov. 2:
The Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) Assessment In Liver disease (GRAIL) better predicts kidney dysfunction at 1 year and 5 years after a liver transplant (LT) vs existing equations, according to a recent study. In the future, GRAIL may serve as an alternate equation for clinical decision making regarding LT vs simultaneous liver-kidney transplantation (SLKT) in patients with liver disease on a wait list.
