Table 2 Bilirubin and albumin deterioration thresholds based on Child–Pugh categorization (sensitivity analysis)

From: Liver function changes after transarterial chemoembolization in US hepatocellular carcinoma patients: the LiverT study

Parameter Deterioration thresholds
Serum total bilirubin at baseline
  < 2 mg/dL If ≥ 2 mg/dL or an increase of 100%
  ≤ 2–≤ 3 mg/dL If > 3 mg/dL
  > 3 mg/dL If increased by ≥ 1 mg/dL
Serum albumin level at baseline
  > 3.5 g/dL If ≤ 3.5 g/dL or a decrease of ≥ 0.3 g/dL
  ≤ 2.8–≤ 3.5 g/dL If < 2.8 g/dL
  < 2.8 g/dL If decreased by ≥ 0.3 g/dL
