MELD score

Posted Feb 01 2010 12:00am

I just heard from our transplant coordinator regarding Anna's MELD score.  The MELD score is based on guidelines from the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) and reflects the urgency of the need for a liver transplant.  It ranges from 6 to 40 (which is gravely ill).  Anna will be starting out with a score of 30!  This is very good news, it means that we are that much closer to getting the transplant!
