Abstract

Cardiac complications are a leading cause of mortality after orthotopic liver transplantation (LT) and pre-operative risk stratification is challenging. We evaluated whether coronary artery calcium (CAC) score calculated on a standard (non-thin layer, non-ECG gated) chest computed tomography (CT) predicted cardiac outcome after LT.
