A total of 241 LT recipients (210 first vs. 31 prior decompensation) were included: median age 43 vs. 38 years (p=0.23), MELD 39 vs. 39 (p=0.98), and follow-up post-LT 2.3 vs. 1.7 years (p=0.08). Unadjusted 1- and 3-year survival among first vs. prior decompensation was 93% (95%CI 89-96%) vs. 86% (66-94%) and 85% (95%CI 79-90%) vs. 78% (95%CI 57-89%). Prior (vs. first) decompensation was associated with higher adjusted post-LT mortality (aHR 2.72, 95%CI 1.61-4.59), and harmful alcohol use (aHR 1.77, 95%CI 1.07-2.94).
