Translated title of the contribution: Surgical interventions is cirrhotic patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Cirrhosis of the liver is considered one of the most significant risk factors related to surgical interventions. Due to numerous pathophysiological factors the rate of complications and operative mortality in certain stages of cirrhosis is high to such an extent that performing elective procedures is basically contraindicated. At the same time operations performed because of complications of cirrhosis are increasingly relegated to the background. The peritoneovenous shunts, although definitely improving quality of life did not fulfill the expectations. Transsection of the esophagus intended to solve hemorrhage of esophageal varices and different devascularisation procedures to manage acute cases evolved on the basis of alcoholic cirrhosis result result in unacceptable high mortality rates. Regarding curative treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma surgical resection is still gold standard, though technology of several tumor ablation methods, principally of radiofrequency is progressively developing.
