The Controlling Nutritional Status (CONUT) score is a newly developed laboratory-derived immuno-nutritional score which has been validated as prognostic marker for survival and tumor recurrence in surgically treated patients with various tumor types, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Aim of the present study was to test the CONUT score performance in HCC patients treated with liver transplantation (LT) METHODS: A retrospective study on a bi-centers cohort of 280 HCC patients submitted to LT between 2006-2017 was performed. Indication to LT was limited to Milan criteria or UCSF criteria, defined by preoperative imaging.
