Correlation between preoperative serum concentration of type IV collagen 7s domain and hepatic failure following resection of hepatocellular carcinoma.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine the predictive value of the preoperative serum concentration of type IV collagen 7s domain (7s collagen) for postoperative hepatic failure in patients undergoing liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Clear and reliable criteria for predicting hepatic failure after liver resection are needed. The serum… (More)
