The liver The liver is your largest internal organ. However, it must be mentioned that at the time of admission, there was a group of patients with an ABIC score less than 6. Survival analysis was carried out using the actuarial and Kaplan-Meier methods, and the survival curves were compared using the Log Rank test.
In our cohort, the MELD score was slightly better than the ABIC with respect to its predictive ability, probably because the calculation of both indices is based on the INR, creatinine and bilirubin, while the ABIC also includes the factor age, which in our series was not a prognostic factor. Only MELD score and urea values at 7 days were independent predictors of survival twelve months after the acute hepatitis episode.
The median hospital admission was 25 days days.
Bilirubin and urea were the only analytical variables that were able to predict the in-hospital mortality; only the baseline urea remained as an independent predictor of mortality after one month, 6 months and one year Fig.

Although these indices are good predictors of mortality in severe alcoholic hepatitis, we should take into account that the determination of simple laboratory values, such as urea and bilirubin 7 days after admission allows us to identify patients with a poor prognosis both in the short and medium-term. On admission, all patients had moderate or severe hepatocellular failure and an improvement was observed after the first 6 months of follow-up.
