Our liver cancer nomogram is a tool designed to help patients and their physicians predict the likelihood that a blood transfusion will be required before, during, or shortly after a hepatectomy (surgery to remove part or all of the liver) for primary or secondary tumors of the liver. If you are a patient, we recommend that you use this tool ONLY in consultation with your physician.
All results from this tool should be discussed with a physician and understood in the context of each patient’s program of care. Results from the liver cancer nomogram are based on data from patients treated at MSK, a large research institution with surgeons who perform a high volume of liver cancer procedures.
