Effective Sept. 28, 2022, the median MELD at transplant (MMaT) values for liver transplant candidates with exception scores will be updated. As of June 2022, the MMaT is based on data about liver transplants performed within a 150 nautical mile radius around the donor hospital where the organ is recovered.
The median PELD at transplant (MPaT) calculation is a national calculation, drawing upon transplants performed nationwide. The updated MPaT will again be 35, as it has been over several previous periods of calculation.
