Details

Alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD) and alcohol-associated hepatitis (AH) is the leading etiology for acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) and need for liver transplantation. ACLF has a high short term mortality due to multiple organ failure. Further, criteria for patient selection for liver transplantation are heterogeneous especially in those with ALD and AH.
