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.
Multiscale entropy was measured at nine time points: 1. preoperative, 2. postoperative day 1, 3. postoperative day 2, 4. postoperative day 3, 5. postoperative day 4, 6. postoperative day 7, 7. postoperative day 14, 8. postoperative 3 months, 9. postoperative 6 months
