INTRODUCTION: Hepatic resection is performed for various benign and malignant liver tumors. Over the last several decades, there have been improvements in the surgical technique and postoperative care of patients undergoing liver surgery. Despite this, liver failure following an extended hepatic resection remains a critical potential postoperative complication. Patients with underlying parenchymal liver diseases are at particular risk of liver failure due to impaired liver regeneration with an associated mortality risk as high as 60 to 90%...

The occurrence of hepatic artery aneurysms is rare and might be incidentally diagnosed, as the patient remains asymptomatic for a long period of time. However, due to the fact that these lesions are associated with a high risk of developing life threatening complications, such as intraperitoneal rupture, it has been stated that all cases should be submitted to treatment by endovascular or surgical approach. We present the case of a 68-year-old patient, who presented with recurrent upper digestive tract bleedings and was diagnosed with a large aneurysm of the common and the proper hepatic artery, and the gastroduodenal artery...

BACKGROUND: Gastrointestinal carcinoid tumours, despite their low malignant potential, frequently metastasize to the liver. While liver resection improves survival and provides symptomatic relief, multifocal bilobar disease complicates surgical management. METHOD: All patients with carcinoid liver secondaries managed by resection from 1990-2015 were identified from a prospective departmental database. Demographic data, operative management, morbidity using the Accordion classification and mortality were analysed...

Background: Liver resection is the only viable therapeutic treatment option for several neoplastic entities of the liver. Although, the number of resectable patients is increasing in Syria, liver failure is still a major complication affecting mortality and morbidity rates. Methods: Between 2009 and 2016, 104 patients undergoing liver resection in Damascus University Faculty of Medicine were retrospectively analyzed. Liver function tests were conducted before surgery (ps) and in the perioperative period (po) and comparisons were performed with division into anatomic VS non-anatomic or malignant VS non-malignant groups...

BACKGROUND: Extrahepatic metastatic spread of hepatocellular carcinoma is present at the time of diagnosis in 5-15% of hepatocellular carcinoma patients. The most common site of metastastic spread is the lungs, bones, lymph nodes. Isolated chest wall localization is extremely rare. CASE: We report a 58-year-old patient with large, synchronous chest wall hepatocellular carcinoma metastasis with solitary primary hepatocellular carcinoma. He underwent a radical, surgical en bloc metastasectomy and subsequent anatomic liver resection...

OBJECTIVE: A fundamental aspect of surgical planning in liver resections is the identification of key vessel tributaries to preserve healthy liver tissue while fully resecting the tumor(s). Current surgical planning relies primarily on the surgeon's ability to mentally reconstruct 2D computed tomography/magnetic resonance (CT/MR) images into 3D and plan resection margins. This creates significant cognitive load, especially for trainees, as it relies on image interpretation, anatomical and surgical knowledge, experience, and spatial sense...

Systemic inflammation was recognized as an essential factor contributing to the development of malignancies. This study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of pre-operative lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in patients with colorectal liver-only metastases (CLOM) undergoing hepatectomy. We retrospectively enrolled 150 consecutive patients with CLOM between 2000 and 2012. The optimal cutoff values of continuous LMR, NLR, and PLR were determined using the receiver operating characteristic curve analysis...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver surgery is seldom performed, mainly because of the risk of hepatic vein bleeding or incomplete resection of the tumour. This risk may be reduced by means of an augmented reality guidance system (ARGS), which have the potential to aid one in finding the position of intrahepatic tumours and hepatic veins and thus in facilitating the oncological resection and in limiting the risk of operative bleeding. METHODS: We report the case of an 81-year-old man who was diagnosed with a hepatocellular carcinoma after an intraabdominal bleeding...

BACKGROUND: Recent advances in technology and accumulation of surgical experience have expanded the indications for laparoscopic liver resection (LLR). However, compared to open liver resection (OLR), the feasibility of laparoscopic anatomical liver resection for centrally located tumor (CLT) has not been clearly established. The aim of our study was to assess the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic anatomical major liver resection for CLT. METHODS: From April 2011 to March 2016, 20 cases of anatomical LLR and 86 cases of OLR for CLTs such as central hepatectomy (CH) and right anterior sectionectomy (RAS) were performed at a single institution...
