Value of general surgical risk models for predicting postoperative liver failure and mortality following liver surgery
Journal of Surgical Oncology, 05/24/2012
Haga Y et al. – The general surgical risk models demonstrated high discriminatory power for predicting postoperative outcomes in liver surgery, but overpredicted the overall mortality rate by more than twofold. Therefore, these models should be refined to make them more suitable for predicting liver surgery outcomes.
