Detailed Description:

Liver surgery is associated with a substantial rate of complications. Early identification of patients at risk of serious complications is important in order to adapt therapeutic strategies and to improve quality. The purpose of this study is to develop and validate a score to predict serious complications following liver resection using pre-operative risk factors.
