abstract

  • Perioperative evaluation of patients undergoing extended hepatic resection should include the quantitation of mortality risk factors. The combination of any two factors among preoperative cholangitis, elevated serum creatinine, elevated serum bilirubin, high operative blood loss, and vena cava resection may carry a high mortality risk. These results require prospective validation.
