Abstract

Campbell and Pugh 5-15 scores correlated closely and can be used interachangeably. As C does not contain the more elaborate prothrombin time determination, it probably can be used anywhere in the world. Ascites (degree) and Ascites/Nutritional State (ANS) scoring only use history and physical examination and are, or remain, although less refined, clinically relevant.
