Aim. Liver transplantation (LT) is the most promising treatment method in hepatocellular cancer (HCC). Due to the shortage of organ donors and the possible risks associated with living donation, the selection of patients for LT is critical. The aim of this study is to investigate the predictive ability of the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), modified GPS (mGPS), and hepatic GPS (hGPS) on prognoses in a patient group who underwent deceased donor LT (DDLT) or living-donor LT (LDLT) for HCC.
