Preoperative remnant liver function evaluation is important for surgery planning and reducing posthepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) rate in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. This study demonstrated that the remnant liver functions preoperatively evaluated by a clinical available Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced imaging protocol were the independently significant indicator in predicting PHLF after adjusting for other PHLF risk factors including sex, age, hepatitis, cirrhosis, preoperative blood serum indices, operation time, intraoperative blood loss and intraoperative blood transfusion in the multivariate logistic regression.
