Additional file 2: Figure S2. Summary of the body water distribution in patients after transthoracic esophagectomy. The amount of ECW increases after surgery and peaks at approximately Day1–18:00 without infection, but when an infection is present the peak is seen later, around Day2–18:00, and the ECW volume also becomes even higher. Patients with low preoperative ICW/FFM might be more dramatically affected in terms of their ICW/FFM and ECW/TBW percentage by this ECW volume change, which may result in higher sensitivity of these parameters as predictors of infectious complications after esophagectomy. ECW, extracellular water; ICW, internal cellular water; FFM, fat free mass; TBW, total body water.
