1. Morales Arrieta, Betty Paola. El reingreso hospitalario precoz en el paciente cirrótico descompensado.

Degree: Departament de Medicina, 2018, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Decompensated cirrhosis is a chronic disease with a high clinical and economic impact, responsible for significant morbidity, mortality and health-care costs. In fact, patients with decompensated cirrhosis have high risk for frequent readmissions for cirrhosis-related complications. In some cases, readmission occurs in a short time with respect to the time of the previous hospital discharge, inclusive up to less than 30 days (early readmission), without a standardized strategy to control this phenomenon. The present doctoral thesis deals with the early readmission of patients with decompensated cirrhosis. In the first part of the thesis there is an updated review of cirrhosis, its natural history, early readmission, and strategies designed to reduce early readmission into different diseases, especially in decompensated cirrhosis. After this review, the two studies that constitute this Doctoral Thesis, recently published in a recognized journal of the specialty, are presented. The first one evaluated the incidence of early readmission, its impact on mortality and the predictive factors of early readmission in a retrospective cohort of cirrhotic patients discharged after being admitted for cirrhosis-related complications. The second work consists of a quasi-experimental study with a control group, which evaluated the effectiveness of applying a transitional follow-up strategies (HEPACONTROL program) on early readmission rates compared to standard follow-up. The program consisted of close patient monitoring carried out in an specialized consultation at the Hepatology Unit Hospital Day seven days after discharge, with the possibility of performing diagnostic procedures or therapy in real time if necessary. In addition, we evaluated the program’s cost-effectiveness as well as its possible impact on the rate of emergency department visits post-discharge and mortality. In order to maintain the unity of the two studies, since these are complementary works, a global discussion of the results obtained is made. Finally, conclusions are drawn.
