Patients with acute on chronic liver failure grade three have greater 14-day waitlist mortality than status-1a patients
from American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases
Patients listed for liver transplantation as status-1a currently receive the highest priority on the waiting list. The presence of acute on chronic liver failure with three or more organs failing portends low survival without transplantation, which may not be reflected by the model for end-stage liver disease-sodium score.
