Table 5 Distribution of risk factors and outcomes in 138 patients with lactate <2 mmol/L and 29 patients with lactate ≥6 mmol/L undergoing liver resection

From: Serum arterial lactate concentration predicts mortality and organ dysfunction following liver resection

Lactate <2 mmol/L (n = 138) ≥6 mmol/L (n = 29) Pvalue
Major resection (%) 26 (18.8) 26 (89.7) <0.001*
Pre-operative chemotherapy (%) 38 (27.5) 5 (17.2) 0.351
Pre-operative diabetes (%) 6 (4.3) 8 (27.6) <0.001*
Post-operative renal dysfunction (%) 3 (2.2) 8 (27.6) <0.001*
90-day mortality (%) 1 (0.7) 8 (27.6) <0.001*
  1. *Significant at level of P <0.05.
