BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to evaluate the response to therapy aimed at achieving supranormal cardiac and oxygen transport variables (cardiac index > than 4.5 L/min/m2, oxygen delivery > 600 ml/min/m2, and oxygen consumption > 170 ml/min/m2) in patients with cirrhosis who have undergone partial hepatectomy and to assess the relationship between those parameters and outcome. METHODS Thirty-four consecutive patients underwent elective hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma. The… CONTINUE READING
