  1. *MELD score using the original mathematical formula: 9.57 × loge(creatinine) + 3.78 × Loge(total bilirubin) + 11.2 × Loge(INR) + 6.43 [21]. Patients were categorized into three groups, as proposed by Wiesner and colleagues [27], where a higher MELD score indicates a worse degree of liver disease: class I (≤ 9), class II (10–19), class III (20–29)
