New formula predicts liver volume for live donor liver transplantation
A new formula developed by researchers in Switzerland and Japan was accurate in calculating standard liver volume in recipients of living donor liver transplantation, according to study data published in the Journal of Hepatology. To create this formula, liver volumes of 180 Japanese donor candidates from a tertiary care Japanese hospital between March 2006 and December 2013 and 160 Swiss patients with normal livers treated at a tertiary care Swiss hospital between January 2001 and April 2014 were analyzed by researchers.
