Abstract

BACKGROUND: Matricellular proteins of the extracellular matrix (ECM) include tenascin-C (TNC) and cellular communication network factor 3 (CCN3). This study aimed to investigate the role of TNC and CCN3 as prognostic factors for post hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) in a rat model of partial hepatectomy and 50 patients following partial hepatectomy.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats underwent 85% (n=53) or 90% hepatectomy (n=53) in the partial hepatectomy (PHx) model. TNC and CCN3 mRNA expression in residual liver tissue was evaluated using quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR), and enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) determined the serum levels of TNC and CCN3. In 50 patients who underwent partial hepatectomy, TNC and CCN3 serum levels were measured on postoperative day 1 and day 3.

RESULTS: In the rat partial hepatectomy model, mRNA and serum levels of TNC and CCN3 were significantly increased within the first 24 h, and were higher in the 90% PHx group compared with the 85% PHx group. Fifty patients who underwent partial hepatectomy, included patients with PHLF (n=12) and patients without PHLF (n=38). Multivariate analysis confirmed that serum levels on postoperative day 3 TNChigh+CCN3high was a significant predictor of PHLF, which was associated with more than twice the risk of severe morbidity when compared with the low-risk patients (80% vs. 30%) and a significantly longer hospital stay (17 days vs. 8 days).

CONCLUSIONS: Further studies are needed to evaluate the potential role of the matricellular proteins, TNC and CCN3 as early clinical predictors for PHLF.
