Probability of Mortality Following Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunts

This calculator is intended for use by health care providers. The results of this tool should never be used alone to determine a patient's medical treatment. This tool is a statistical model and is not a substitute for an individual treatment plan developed by a doctor with personal knowledge of a specific patient. Other important factors that must be considered include the patient's own medical history and the experience, knowledge and training of the doctor. Doctors should personally discuss these results with patients when presenting prognoses or treatment recommendations.

Details regarding the development and validation of this tool are provided in the manuscript titled "A Model to Predict Poor Survival in Patients Undergoing Transjugular Intrahepatic Portosystemic Shunts” (Michael Malinchoc, Patrick S. Kamath, Fredric D. Gordon, Craig J. Peine, Jeffrey Rank, and Pieter C.J. ter Borg, Hepatology. 2000 Apr;31(4):864-71).
