Objective: MELD-XI (Model for End-Stage Liver Disease Excluding INR) score predicts mortality in patients with heart failure. Herein, we assessed the role of MELD- XI score in predicting in-hospital mortality among heart failure patients having intracardiac cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator backup (CRT-D) who presented with appropriate device shock or acute decompensated heart failure.
