Model to Calculate Harms and Benefits of Early vs Delayed Liver Transplantation for Patients with Alcohol-Associated Hepatitis.

Gastroenterology 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Massachusetts General Hospital, Institute for Technology Assessment, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA. Electronic address:

Background & Aims: Early liver transplantation (without requiring a minimum period of sobriety) for severe alcohol-associated hepatitis (AH) is controversial-many centers delay eligibility until a specific period of sobriety (such as 6 months) has been achieved. To inform ongoing debate and policy, we modeled long-term outcomes of early vs delayed liver transplantation for patients with AH.

Methods: We developed a mathematical model to simulate early vs delayed liver transplantation for patients with severe AH and different amounts of alcohol use after transplantation: abstinence, slip (alcohol use followed by sobriety), or sustained use. Read More
