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 Intervention
Liver Diseases Drug: sivelstat Drug: glucose

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Effect of Perioperative Sivelstat Administration for Liver Resection

Further study details as provided by Takehiro Okabayashi, Kochi University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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:
  • 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 ]
