Machine learning model bests MELD score for predicting mortality in hepatic encephalopathy

A machine learning model using artificial neural networks demonstrated “superior performance” compared with MELD score for predicting 28-day mortality among patients with hepatic encephalopathy, according to data in BMC Gastroenterology.“Though hepatic encephalopathy (HE) patients have improved outcomes over the past decade, several studies have indicated that the prognosis and quality of life still remain poor,” Zhe Zhang, from the department of gastroenterology at Tangdu Hospital in China, and colleagues wrote. “Specifically, HE typically heralds hepaticRead More
