Abstract

At the present time, the decision to resect and the choice of the extent of a hepatic resection are largely based on surgical judgment. The CP score is the best assessment tool we can now employ. There is uniform agreement that even segmental resections are not possible in the vast majority of Child Class B patients, CP score 7 to 9. The CP score can be augmented by radiographic testing, ICG retention testing, and by assessing tumor extent and the severity of the patient's cirrhosis at surgery.
