Abstract

ICU admissions due to cirrhotic liver disease are rising in the UK. Current prognostic scoring tools to predict ICU mortality have performed poorly in this group. In previous research from a single centre, a novel prognostic scoring tool (the CTP þ L score), which modified the existing Child-Turcotte Pugh score by adding serum arterial Lactate concentration, was strongly associated with mortality.1 This study aims to validate the use of the CTP þ L scoring tool for predicting ICU mortality in patients admitted to a general ICU with cirrhotic liver disease. This study will also explore the use of the Royal Free Hospital (RFH) scoring system in this cohort.
