Recently, von-Willebrand-Factor (vWF) has been shown to correlate with postoperative liver dysfunction (LD). Accordingly, "disintegrin-like metalloprotease with thrombospondin type1 motif" (ADAMTS13) is known to cleave vWF in less active fragments. Thus, we aimed to evaluate the diagnostic potential of ADAMTS13-activity (ADAMTS13-AC) to identify patients with postoperative LD after hepatectomy. Accordingly 37 patients undergoing hepatectomy for different neoplastic entities were included indoi:10.1038/s41598-018-34794-w fatcat:etpjkto4nvcx7dia632pegunpy
