Abstract: Our aim was to assess hepatic functionality in patients with HCC and candidate for liver resection. We used dynamic tests of liver functionality Indocyanine green (ICG) and Hippurate ratio, for the evaluation of surgical risk and postoperative clinical course. The clinical and predictive value of the tests has been compared with each other and with routine tests. Tests have been performed on 11 patients with HCC, in 8 before surgery and after 6 months, in 1 before TACE and after 6 months. The results showed a significative correlation with the endpoints: survival, liver failure, general condition of the patients, and parallelism in the clinical assessment of patients. ICG and Hippurate ratio are useful in patients undergoing liver resection and in the follow up.
