To compare the effects of hydroxyethyl starch (HES) 130/0.4 and HES 200/0.5, which have different molecular weights and degrees of substitution, on microcirculation perfusion and tissue oxygenation in patients undergoing liver surgery. Thirty patients with an American Society of Anesthesiologists status I/II who were scheduled for liver surgery were randomly divided into two groups: one received an intraoperative HES 130/0.4 infusion equal to the amount of blood loss (HES 130/0.4 group, n=15), and the other received HES 200/0.5 equal to the amount of blood loss (HES 200/0.5 group, n=15). Gastric mucosal perfusion and tissue oxygenation were monitored by measuring the gastric mucosal pH (pHi), which was determined using a carbon dioxide tonometer inserted through a nasogastric tube. Gastric mucosal pHi , hemodynamic parameters, body temperature, and blood gas parameters were recorded upon entering the operating room, before skin incision, one hour and two hours after skin incision, and at the end of surgery. The intraoperative pHi decreased in both groups of patients, but the decline in the HES 130/0.4 group was smaller than that of the HES 200/0.5 group. The pHi of the HES 130/0.4 group was significantly higher than that of the HES 200/0.5 group two hours after skin incision and at the end of surgery (P<0.05). A multivariate analysis showed that the type of colloid used intraoperatively was the only variant that affected pHi (F=0.626, P<0.05). Moreover, there were good correlation between pHi at the end of surgery and the length of postoperative hospital stay (r=-0.536, P<0.05) and the time intervals from surgery to the passage of flatus (r=-0.547, P<0.05). Compared with HES 200/0.5, the use of HES 130/0.4 (with a relatively lower molecular weight and lower degree of substitution) could significantly improve internal organ perfusion and tissue oxygenation in patients undergoing liver surgery with a relatively large amount of blood loss.
