Table 3 Early mortality and early recurrence based on RAMa, ALBIb and MELDc score classifications

From: RAM score is an effective predictor for early mortality and recurrence after hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma

   Early Mortality vs. Lived P-value Early recurrence vs. Non-recurrence P-value
RAM scorea (mean ± SE)   5.52 ± 0.17 vs. 3.85 ± 0.05 <0.001 4.34 ± 0.06 vs.3.35 ± 0.06 <0.001
ALBI scoreb (mean ± SE)   −2.47 ± 0.04 vs. -2.81 ± 0.01 <0.001 −2.71 ± 0.01 vs. -2.86 ± 0.01 <0.001
MELD scorec (mean ± SE)   9.32 ± 0.33 vs. 8.27 ± 0.07 0.002 8.54 ± 0.09 vs. 8.23 ± 0.10 0.113
  Number (% of total) Early mortality (6-month) (%) P-value Early recurrence (2-year) (%) P-value
