Increased myocardial contractility identifies patients with decompensated cirrhosis requiring liver transplantation

from Liver Transplantation

Late allocation of organs for transplant impairs post–liver transplantation (LT) survival. Cardiac dysfunction, especially diastolic and autonomic dysfunction, is frequent and plays an important role in the prognosis of patients with cirrhosis. However, the role of myocardial contractility is unexplored, and its prognostic value is controversially discussed. This study analyses the role of myocardial contractility assessed by speckle tracking echocardiography in LT allocation. more
