Heart Rate Variability Change After Liver Transplantation
Effects of Liver Transplantation on the Heart Rate Variability in Patients With End-Stage Liver Disease
Cirrhotic cardiomyopathy describes a hyperdynamic state with the presentation of high cardiac output and low systemic vascular resistance. And the latent heart failure becomes obvious under physiologic and pharmacologic stress. The goal of our study is to assess the effects of liver transplantation on the heart rate variability in patients with end stage liver disease.
