Brief Summary:
It is reported that sivelstat improved and preserved the postoperative renal function in the orthopedic management. Moreover because sivelstat reduced the migration of neutrophil, it improved acute lung injury. During liver resection, Pringle maneuver, clamping the hepatoduodenal ligament, was performed. Pringle maneuver causes reperfusion injury of the liver. We have a hypothesis that sivelstat prevent the warm shock of reperfusion injury of the liver by Pringle maneuver.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Liver Diseases Drug: sivelstat Drug: glucose

Detailed Description:
Whether the incidence of postoperative morbidities, such as liver failure, renal failure, or congestive heart failure, was reduced by administration of perioperative sivelstat.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 50 participants
Allocation: Randomized

Official Title: Effect of Perioperative Sivelstat Administration for Liver Resection
Study Start Date : April 2007
Primary Completion Date : May 2008
Study Completion Date : July 2008

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: 2
250mL of 5% glucose plus 300mg of sivelstat was infected through the vein at 10mL per an hour
Drug: sivelstat
sivelstat sodiumhydrate

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence of liver damage due to reperfusion injury by Pringle maneuver was measured by several cytokines, including IL-8, IL-6, and HMGB-1. [ Time Frame: during hospitalization ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The duration of ICU stay and hospital stay, postoperative complications, and the liver damage at 6 POD, measuring hepato-biliary enzyme [ Time Frame: during hospitalization ]
