The purpose of this study was to determine the relative value of liver function markers in predicting the magnitude of morbidity and to develop a quantitative estimate of the prognostic risk using a multivariate regression model in patients who have been operated on for biliary atresia. The study sample consisted of 37 patients who had undergone a Kasai portoenterostomy; the jaundice disappeared in 32 and persisted in five. A computer-based stepwise regression procedure produced the linear… CONTINUE READING
