MELD Score = 10 x (0.957 x Ln(serum creatinine mg/dL) + 0.378 x Ln(serum bilirubin
mg/dL) + 1.120 x
Ln(INR) + 0.643 )For candidates with an initial MELD score greater
than 11, the MELD score is then re-calculated as follows:
MELDNa = MELD(i) + 1.32*(137-Na)
Important policy changes including 'Clerical Changes for
Implementation of Adding Serum Sodium to the MELD Score'
United Network for Organ Sharing proposed that MELD-Na score (an
extension of MELD) may better rank candidates based on their risk of
pre-transplant mortality and is projected to save 50-60 lives total
