When PVE indicated in cirrhosis

When might PVE be indicated in patients with cirrhosis? 

PVE is considered in patients with well-compensated cirrhosis (i.e., Child-Pugh [CP] class A), who are surgical resection candidates, and who have an sFLR of less than 40%. Patients with cirrhosis often demonstrate attenuated rates and degrees of hypertrophy, so it is not uncommon that PVE might be performed in combination with other techniques such as TACE. TACE is performed prior to PVE and may prevent disease progression that could result in the patient no longer being eligible for resection.
