The following formula is used for calculation: MELD = 3.78 ln(bilirubin [mg/dL]) + 11.2 ln(INR) + 9.57 ln(creatinine [mg/dL]) + 6.43
The Model for End Stage Liver Disease (MELD) is a scoring system of the severity of chronic liver disease predicting short-term mortality. It was found to be useful in determining prognosis and prioritizing for receipt of a liver transplant.
