Ratio of branched chain amino acid to tyrosine after hepatectomy


The roles of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and the tyrosine (Tyr) profile after liver resection were investigated using an inexpensive enzymatic method that was recently developed to quantify their concentrations. The preoperative BCAAs-to-Tyr ratio (BTR) was significantly correlated with the preoperative indocyanin green clearance ratio. The BTR… (More)
