    Background: Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is a chronic liver disease characterized by intrahepatic bile-duct destruction, cholestasis, and fibrosis. It can lead to cirrhosis and eventually liver failure. PBC also shows some regional differences with respect to incidence and prevalence that are...

    Background and objectives: Stroke volume variation (SVV) and the pulse pressure variation (PPV) have been found to be effective in prediction fluid responsiveness especially in high risk operations. The objective of this study is to validate the ability of SVV obtained by FloTrac/Vigileo system...
