BACKGROUND: Hepatic resection remains a hemorrhagic procedure. The purpose of this study was to investigate the preoperative predictive factors of intraoperative blood transfusion. METHODS: One hundred consecutive patients who underwent hepatic resection for tumor were included in this retrospective study. Resection was performed for primary malignancies (n = 52), metastases (n = 18), and benign tumors (n = 30). Liver resection was performed under intermittent clamping of the portal triad. Seventeen variables were analyzed. RESULTS: The operative blood loss was 1,872 mL (mean 1,104; range 650 to 4500) for the 22 transfused patients. The mean blood transfusion was 5.5 units (mean 3.2; range 2 to 12) of packed red cells. Multivariate analysis demonstrated that the size of liver resection (P <0.001) and the prothrombin rate (P <0.001) were independently correlated with blood transfusion. CONCLUSIONS: Patients undergoing extended resection or with abnormal coagulation could be considered for autologous blood transfusion.
