Association between preoperative prealbumin level and postoperative mortality and morbidity after hepatic resection for hepatocellular carcinoma: A multicenter study from a HBV-endemic area





Prealbumin is a more sensitive serum biomarker in reflecting liver function and nutritional status than albumin, because of its shorter half-life and its characteristics that could hardly be affected by supplemental venous infusion of albumin or blood transfusion. This study aimed to identify whether preoperative prealbumin level was associated with postoperative mortality and morbidity after hepatic resection for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
