Abnormal hepatic perfusion index predicts recurrence of colorectal carcinoma.


OBJECTIVE The hepatic perfusion index (HPI) is a ratio of the gradient of hepatic arterial to total hepatic blood flow. This study correlated HPI with histopathological indicators of prognosis and disease-free survival following curative resection of colorectal cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS HPI was measured preoperatively by dynamic hepatic scintigraphy in… (More)
