Mini-mental state examination in patients with hepatic encephalopathy and liver cirrhosis: a prospective, quantified electroencephalography study


Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) is one of the most commonly used methods in the assessment of cognitive mental status. MMSE has been used in hepatology but its usefulness in the evaluation of hepatic encephalopathy (HE) has never been properly assessed.
