Webinar: E-AHPBA–ESSO–ESSR Innsbruck consensus guidelines for preoperative liver function assessment before hepatectomy

22.11.2023 at 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. (CET)

These European guidelines for the preoperative measurement of liver function were published in June of this year.

This represents an important milestone for the use of the LiMAx test and underlines its importance for the safety of patients and surgeons.

In our webinar, we want to highlight the key aspects of these guidelines, including the resulting significance for the use of the LiMAx test in daily practice. In addition, we will discuss applications of the LiMAx test in hepatology.


Chairman: Martin Stockmann

Johan Lock: Key points of the E-AHPBA-ESSO-ESSR guidelines

Martin Stockmann: The LiMAx test in the E-AHPBA-ESSO-ESSR guidelines and recommendations for day-to-day practice

Guido Gerken: The use of the LiMAx test in hepatology: study data, personal experience and billing tips

LiMAx® Functional Principle:

LiMAx (Liver Maximum Capacity) is a diagnostic breath test for the quantitative determination of the maximum enzymatic liver function in adults. The test is based on the metabolization of a non-radioactive and isotope labeled drug, 13C-Methacetin by the cytochrome-P450 (CYP1A2) enzyme. Due to this metabolization the 13CO2 levels in the exhaled air increases. The increase is a direct measure of liver function capacity at the cellular level, called LiMAx.
