A number of surgical procedures are available for the treatment of malignant and benign liver conditions. Many techniques have evolved over the years to make liver surgery more effective, simpler and safer. It is now possible to perform complicated, major and more involved liver surgical procedures within a few hours and without the requirement of blood transfusions. The most common type of liver surgery is liver resection, which involves the complete or partial removal of the liver. It is mostly performed for the purpose of removing a tumor. Liver tumors can also be addressed using minimally invasive, catheter-based procedures and treatments. Surgeries for the treatment of liver lesions such as cysts, hemangiomas and adenomas can be done laparoscopically or in a conventional open surgical procedure, depending on the location of the lesion. The objective of this book is to give a general view of the different operative techniques of liver surgery, and their applications. It strives to provide a fair idea about liver surgery and to help develop a better understanding of the latest advances within this surgical specialization. It will be a vital reference text for hepatologists, gastroenterologists, surgeons and students alike.

Owing to both improved preoperative assessment and the use of established surgical techniques, liver resection can today be performed with low morbidity and minimal mortality. But no matter which technique is applied in liver resection, the most difficult event to manage is postresectional liver failure. All peri-operative efforts should therefore be directed to the prevention of this potentially lethal complication. This publication presents some of the current techniques of liver resection and the management of the most common complications associated with the procedures. The first part deals with the question of how much remnant liver is enough for a safe resection and describes appropriate techniques for optimal preservation. Then, several procedures for transection of the liver parenchyma and for clamping of the afferent vessels at the hepatic pedicle are presented, mainly aiming at limiting blood loss during resection. Bile leakage and its prevention after liver resection are considered last, followed by a discussion of indications for laparoscopic liver resection.

The aim of this book is to identify and shed new light on the main surgical practices involved in acute care and trauma surgery. Adopting an evidence-based approach, a multidisciplinary team of surgeons and intensivists illustrate basic and advanced operative techniques, accompanied by a comprehensive and updated reference collection. Emerging surgical procedures in Acute Care Surgery are also explored step by step with the help of ample illustrations. Further, the book offers an overview of treatment options for acute organ failure, with a focus on peculiar clinical situations that call for special treatment, including: extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), circulatory support and urgent liver transplantation. In order to identify the key determinants in decision-making and therapeutic support that can help avoid critical errors, authors not only define and discuss specific surgical techniques, but also present major issues and controversies related to it. In essence, the book can be considered a “What to do guide” that offers easy access to both basic and advanced lifesaving surgical procedures, due in part to text boxes highlighting “Tips, Tricks and Pitfalls” as well as advice on “Complications Management”. Many chapters are enriched by providing clinical case scenarios, an important educational resource including self–assessment questionnaires.

In the past, liver resections and liver transplantations were performed by different surgical teams, with very little interplay between the two. However, the evolution toward more complex operations called for an increasingly intense interaction between these surgical techniques: split liver and living donor liver transplantation have become popular in the transplant community, utilizing the Coinaud segmental anatomy in a very sophisticated way, while portal and arterial resection and reconstruction have become indispensable methods for treating Klatskin tumors infiltrating the hepatic hilum. This book offers a complete overview of the connections between liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery. It focuses on ex situ techniques for resection of tumors at the suprahepatic confluence, with or without venous reconstruction, and on total vascular exclusion of the liver with the aid of a venovenous bypass that should be a surgical option for referral centers in hepatopancreatobiliary surgery. By taking into consideration the development of minimally invasive liver surgery, it will introduce readers to a variety of new perspectives such as: vascular exclusion techniques with or without extracorporeal circulation, hemodynamic implications and lessons learned from liver transplant surgery, and technical details on pediatric transplantation and its informative role in modern biliary tract surgery.

The incidence of primary and metastatic liver tumors is rising and the therapeutic armamentarium for these tumors is expanding at a rapid pace. Surgery remains the primary treatment modality for these tumors. With improvements in our perioperative management and operative techniques a larger proportion of patients are able to undergo potentially curative liver surgery. In addition, indications and criteria for liver transplantation for both primary and metastatic liver tumors are constantly expanding. Unfortunately, many patients are not amendable to surgical resection or liver transplantation and therefore alternative liver-directed therapies are routinely being implemented as part of complex multidisciplinary treatment models. However, these models are continually evolving as these regional therapeutic options continue to expand. New embolization agents and techniques, as well as, improvements in radiation delivery, are all evolving in the background of improvement in systemic and targeted therapy options for these tumors. This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of the current state of liver-directed therapy for malignant liver tumors. The book will serve as a valuable resource for not only surgeons and clinicians but for researchers with an interest in malignant liver tumors. The book focuses on the therapeutic approach to primary and metastatic tumors providing an up-to-date review on surgical liver anatomy and new imaging techniques as well as patient selection and technical consideration for resection and transplantation. In addition, the book provides new insight into novel and evolving therapies in the areas of transarterial therapy such as: (i) bland embolization, (ii) chemoembolization, and (iii) radioembolization; as well as new radiation techniques including SBRT and proton therapy. Furthermore, the expanding role of hepatic artery infusion therapy in primary malignant tumors is highlighted. Finally, integration of all these regional therapy options with upcoming and evolving systemic and targeted therapy regimens are integrated and discussed. This book will serve as a very useful resource for clinicians and researchers managing and treating patients with these challenging malignancies. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information.
