, dedicated patient visits, and is therefore not easily applicable to large patient populations. In recent years, a number of serum-based fibrosis tests have been developed and validated. Many studies have reported reasonable performance characteristics and good agreement with biopsy or elastography data.[ 4 , 5 ] With the advent of electronic medical record systems, fibrosis scores can be easily calculated after extracting the pertinent test results for each patient. This process does not require additional patient visits, and can be applied to large patient cohorts. As

Introduction Liver cir rhosis (LC) is a common gastroenterological pathology among adults. Its aetiological factors are: alcohol abuse, hepatitis B infection, hepatitis C infection, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and others.[ 1 , 2 ] Cirrhosis with multiple-aetiologies are more susceptible of developing multiple organ failures, predominantly kidney, brain, heart and others.[ 1 , 3 ] This disease can be classified using several methods and these cases will be focusing on Halstead-Reitan and Child-Pugh score classification

evaluating motor control through functional movement and dynamic coordination analysis ( Cook et al., 2006a , b ). The FMS has also been used as an injury prediction tool in competitive athletes. Recent studies have shown that athletes with an FMS score under 14 were more likely to sustain an injury than their peers who received more than 14 points ( Kiesel et al., 2007 , 2011 ; Chorba et al., 2010 ). Another study has shown that, regardless of the score obtained in the FMS test, asymmetry in movements pointed to a more than 2-fold higher risk of injury ( Kiesel et al
