Researchers have developed a scoring system to predict the likelihood of people with severe liver injury surviving. This system is called the Child-Turcotte-Pugh (or Child-Pugh) score, simplified as CTP. This scoring system takes into account a number of lab test results and severity of symptoms. CTP can be divided into three grades -- A, B and C. In general, the greater the CTP score, the lower the chances of survival. Here are some examples:
In several reports in this issue of TreatmentUpdate, we will refer to CTP scores.
