Modified Child-Pugh classification of severity of liver disease according to the degree of ascites, the plasma concentrations of bilirrubin and albumin, the prothrombin time, and the degree of encephalopathy.
A total score of 5-6 is considered grade A (well-compensated disease); 7-9 is grade B (significant functional compromise); and 10-15 is grade C (descompensated disease). These grades correlate with one- and two-year patient survival.
