Abstract

Prognostic scores currently used in cirrhotic patients do not include thrombotic risk factors (TRFs). Predicting factors of portal vein thrombosis (PVT) development are still unknown. We wanted to describe TRFs as a function of liver disease severity using the MELD score and assess the role of local and systemic TRFs as predictors of PVT development in cirrhotic patients.
