Summary of "Hepatorenal dysfunction identifies high-risk patients with acute heart failure: insights from the RELAX-AHF trial."

Episodes of acute heart failure (AHF) may lead to end-organ dysfunction. In this post hoc analysis of the Relaxin in Acute Heart Failure trial, we used the MELD-XI (Model of End-Stage Liver Dysfunction) score to examine hepatorenal dysfunction in patients with AHF.
