OBJECTIVE: Create practice guidelines for the appropriate use of red blood cell transfusions in hepatectomy. BACKGROUND: Hepatectomy is associated with a high prevalence of transfusions. A transfusion can be life-saving, but can be associated with important adverse effects. Given the prevalence, the potential for benefit and harm, and the difficulty in conducting clinical trials, transfusion in hepatectomy is well-suited for a study of appropriateness. METHODS: Using the RAND/UCLA appropriateness method, an international, multidisciplinary expert panel in hepatobiliary surgery, anesthesia, transfusion medicine, and critical care rated a series of 468 perioperative scenarios for transfusion appropriateness...

BACKGROUND: Accurate measuring of the hepatic hemodynamic parameters in humans is inconvenient. Swine has been a favorite surgical model for the study of liver conditions due to many similarities with human livers. However, pigs cannot tolerate pedicle clamping and to reduce bleeding during resection a simplified technique is required. The aim of this study is to present a simplified technique for different percentages of hepatic resection in a porcine model. METHODS: Twenty-two consecutive large white pigs were operated with 75% and 90% liver resection...

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the usefulness of a closed-loop system (STG-55; Nikkiso, Tokyo, Japan), a type of artificial endocrine pancreas for the continuous monitoring and control of intraoperative blood glucose, for preventing postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients undergoing hepatectomy. Thirty-eight patients were enrolled in this study. Glucose concentrations were controlled with either a manual injection of insulin based on a commonly used sliding scale (manual insulin group, n = 19) or the programmed infusion of insulin determined by the control algorithm of the artificial endocrine pancreas (programmed insulin group, n = 19)...

BACKGROUND: Many anesthesia methods have been studies in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We aimed to explore the effects of combined intravenous and inhalation anesthesia and combined general and epidural anesthesia on cellular immune function and neuroendocrine function in patients with HCC before and after surgery. METHODS: Between September 2012 and April 2014, 72 patients who underwent a hepatectomy in our hospital were enrolled. RESULTS: Compared with the combined intravenous and inhalation anesthesia group, the combined general and epidural anesthesia group demonstrated increased CD4(+) /CD8(+) T cells 0 hr after surgery, increased CD3(+) , CD4(+) , CD4(+) /CD8(+) cells, and IFN-γ levels 12 hr after surgery, and increased CD3(+) , CD4(+) , and CD4(+) /CD8(+) cells 24 hr after surgery (all P < 0...

We report here a case of rocuronium-induced anaphylactic shock in a 41-year-old woman. She was scheduled for partial hepatectomy due to liver metastasis of a pheochromocytoma. Anesthesia was induced with propofol, remifentanil, and rocuronium. Bag-mask ventilation was difficult, and her blood pressure fell to around 40 mmHg just after induction. Subsequently, her trachea was intubated and adrenaline was injected. However, due to the subsequent persistence of severe hypotension and hypoxia, cardiopulmonary resuscitation was necessary...

AIM: To investigate the therapeutic effects and mechanisms of interleukin (IL)-22 in liver regeneration in mice with concanavalin A (ConA)-induced liver injury following 70% hepatectomy. METHODS: Mice were injected intravenously with ConA at 10 μg/g body weight 4 d before 70% hepatectomy to create a hepatitis model, and recombinant IL-22 was injected at 0.125 μg/g body weight 30 min prior to 70% hepatectomy to create a therapy model. Control animals received an intravenous injection of an identical volume of normal saline...

BACKGROUND: Enhanced recovery (ER) pathways have become increasingly integrated into surgical practice. Studies that compare ER and traditional pathways often focus on outcomes confined to inpatient hospitalization and rarely assess a patient's functional recovery. The aim of this study was to compare functional outcomes for patients treated on an Enhanced Recovery in Liver Surgery (ERLS) pathway vs a traditional pathway. STUDY DESIGN: One hundred and eighteen hepatectomy patients rated symptom severity and life interference using the validated MD Anderson Symptom Inventory preoperatively and postoperatively at every outpatient visit until 31 days after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Bleeding remains an important intraoperative complication in patients who undergo hepatectomy. It is generally believed that a reduction in central venous pressure will decrease bleeding from the hepatic venous system. To our knowledge, however, no study has compared the effectiveness of these techniques for controlling bleeding. So we compared the effectiveness of central venous pressure control techniques, such as infrahepatic inferior vena cava clamping, changes in surgical position of the patient, and hypoventilation anesthesia, for lowering central venous pressure...

Surgical hepatic resection has been considered as the first-line treatment which is most effective and radical treatment for HCC, however, HCC is usually associated with poor liver function owing to chronic hepatitis or liver cirrhosis. Techniques that can eradicate the tumor and also preserve liver function are needed. Moreover, hepatic resection, in the presence of cirrhosis, raises special problem of high risk as hemorrhage and liver failure, thus, good clinical results can only be achieved by minimizing operative blood loss, time of the intervention as well as the hepatic reserve...
