Pre Day of Surgery


Day of Surgery    One of the most important considerations for liver resection patients is to minimize the amount of IVF they get prior to surgical resection of the liver.  Large amounts of IVF will increase the CVP and congest the liver making the resection more difficult and a significantly higher blood loss and transfusion requirement.  It cannot be stressed enough with these patients.   In general these patients do not require a bowel prep pre-operatively.
