Table 3 Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis to evaluate the predictive value of APRI, MELD score, operation time, and blood loss for severe PHLF in HCC patients

From: Impact of aspartate aminotransferase–to–platelet ratio index based score to assess posthepatectomy liver failure in patients with hepatocellular carcninoma

Variables Cut-off AUC Sensitivity Specificity P value
APRI 1.56 0.76932 73.3 73.4 0.0009**
MELD score 8.3 0.71469 66.7 75.8 < .0001**
Operating time (min) 407 0.67407 33.3 95.7 < .0001**
Intraoperative blood loss (mL) 847 0.69759 50.0 89.1 < .0001**
