Abstract: Advanced liver disease is characterized by prolonged global coagulation tests such as prothrombin time (PT). Using Model of End-stage Liver Disease (MELD) score-based allocation, many current transplant recipients show advanced end-stage liver disease with an elevated international normalized ratio (INR). The relationship between abnormalities in coagulation tests and the risk of bleeding has been recently challenged among liver disease patients. In this study we reassessed risk factors for bleeding and the clinical implications for patients who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT).
