Welcome to the liver transplantation for critically ill cirrhotic patients webpage – Transplantation for ACLF-3 patients Model (TAM score).

Recipient age (years) :
Arterial lactate level (mmol/L) : 
Leucocyte count (G/L) : 
Respiratory failure : 
(defined as intubation with PaO2/FiO2 < 200mmHg)
A TAM score > 2 indicates a high risk of post-transplant mortality

* The TAM score was derived from a cohort of 76 patients transplanted with ACLF-3 and validated on an independent cohort of 76 patients. This model uses binary variables, as indicated in the figure bellow.


Continuous variable calculator
One-year post-transplant survival probability* :
Patients with a TAM score of 1 or 2 but extreme values of age, arterial lactate level or leucocyte count are likely to have a one-year post-transplant survival probability significantly different from the one predicted by the TAM score in this model which uses continuous variables

* This model is based on the analysis of 152 patients transplanted with ACLF-3 and uses continuous variables.


These models, based on a retrospective analysis of 152 patients transplanted with ACLF-3 at the time of transplantation, are aimed at identifying the optimal transplantation window for critically ill cirrhotic patients.
