Liver Transplantation, 06/08/2012
Yilmaz M et al. – The presence of preoperative ascites and the use of LigaSure Vessel Sealing System (LVSS) for perihepatic dissection are independent risk factors for chylous ascites formation. To the authors knowledge, this study is the most extensive examination of the development of chylous ascites. Nevertheless, the results should be supported by new prospective trials.
