Abstract

Surgery involving elderly patients is becoming increasingly common due to the rapid aging of societies all over the world. The objective of this study was to elucidate the prognostic differences between elderly and young patients who undergo liver resection. A systematic review based on the PRISMA flow diagram was conducted. Ovid Medline and PubMed were used to search for relevant literature published between January 2000 and March 2013, and the modified MINORS score was used to assess the methodological quality. In cases of hepatocellular carcinoma and miscellaneous liver tumors, the morbidity and mortality rate did not differ significantly between the elderly and young patients. For patients with colorectal metastatic liver cancer, the mortality of the young patients was 2.7 times lower than that of elderly patients. Our review of high-quality retrospective studies was able to elucidate the clinical risks of age on the outcomes after liver surgery in specific patient populations.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 September 2015.
All research outputs
#9,377,232
of 12,221,976 outputs
Outputs from Surgery Today
#295
of 602 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#148,571
of 231,053 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgery Today
#7
of 32 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,221,976 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 602 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 231,053 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 32 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its contemporaries.
