Video: Early postoperative arterial lactate concentrations to stratify risk of post-hepatectomy liver failure


Lactate Impact

Post-hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) represents the major determinant for death after liver resection. Early recognition is essential. Early postoperative lactate values are powerful, readily available markers for clinically relevant PHLF and associated complications after hepatectomy with potential for guiding postoperative care. This video explains the recent study published in BJS.
