Associated liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has emerged as an alternative for patients with bilobar colorectal liver metastasis and a small future liver remnant (FLR). In cases of extensive disease, ALPPS can be performed, leaving only one segment of the liver as FLR. We describe a case of monosegmental ALPPS using segment 4 as FLR. In conclusion, ALPPS should be reserved for a selected group of patients. Monosegmental ALPPS is feasible, but should be performed by hepatobiliary surgeons in specialized centers...

OBJECTIVE: To longitudinally assess whether risk adjustment in Associating Liver Partition and Portal Vein Ligation for Staged Hepatectomy (ALPPS) occurred over time and is associated with postoperative outcome. BACKGROUND: ALPPS is a novel 2-stage hepatectomy enabling resection of extensive hepatic tumors. ALPPS has been criticized for its high mortality, which is reported beyond accepted standards in liver surgery. Therefore, adjustments in patient selection and technique have been performed but have not yet been studied over time in relation to outcome...

To reduce post-hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF), associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has been recently developed for patients with a limited future remnant liver (FRL). Nevertheless, high morbi-mortality rates have been reported . The current study aimed to analyze the kinetics of FRL function in patients who were offered ALPPS. Serial SPECT (99 m)Tc-mebrofenin hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) was performed in all patients before and after surgery as well as at inter-stage to quantitatively assess hepatic function [total liver (TL) and FRL]...

BACKGROUND: For colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM) patients, hepatic resection is currently the sole cure offering the chance of long-term survival. Tumor shrinkage and planned liver remnant hypertrophy are the two key strategies for conversion of initially unresectable CRLM. First conducted in 2012, associated liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) allows rapid liver growth. As a means to induce hypertrophy, portal vein embolization (PVE) has been widely applied before extending hepatectomy...

BACKGROUND: Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) induces more rapid liver growth than portal vein ligation (PVL). Transection of parenchyma in ALPPS may prevent the formation of collaterals between lobes. The aim of this study was to determine if abrogating the formation of collaterals through parenchymal transection impacted growth rate. METHODS: Twelve Yorkshire Landrace pigs were randomized to undergo ALPPS, PVL, or "partial ALPPS" by varying degrees of parenchymal transection...

Colorectal cancer patients have a high incidence of liver metastasis (ml-CRC). Surgical resection is the gold standard for treatment of hepatic metastasis but only a small percent of patients are traditional candidates based on disease extent and adequate size of the future liver remnant (FLR). Interventions such as portal vein embolization (PVE) and associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) are performed to increase FLR for operative conversion. Limitations to PVE include intrahepatic disease progression, portal vascular invasion, and utilization with concurrent chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) induces a rapid and extensive increase in liver volume. The functional quality of this hypertrophic response has been called into question because ALPPS is associated with a substantial incidence of liver failure and high perioperative mortality. This multicenter study aimed to evaluate functional liver regeneration in contrast to volumetric liver regeneration in ALPPS, using technetium-99m hepatobiliary scintigraphy and computed tomography volumetry, respectively...

Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has been recently demonstrated as a method to induce rapid and extensive hypertrophy within a short time and has been employed for a variety of primary and metastatic liver tumors. However, controversies remain due to its high morbidity and mortality. To enable safer surgery, liver surgeons have searched for better technical modifications, such as partial ALPPS, mini-ALPPS, minimally invasive ALPPS, and Terminal branches portal vein Embolization Liver Partition for Planned hepatectomy (TELPP)...

BACKGROUND: Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has been reported to be a new treatment strategy for patients with predicted small volumes of future liver remnant (FLR). ALPPS is associated with rapid hypertrophy of FLR but it has a high postoperative mortality and morbidity. Up to now, it is controversial to apply ALPPS in hepatocellular carcinoma, especially for patients with liver cirrhosis. METHODS: Between May 2014 and June 2015, consecutive patients who underwent ALPPS with hepatitis B-related hepatocellular carcinoma with cirrhosis carried out in our center were included into the study...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic resection is the only potentially curative treatment for primary liver tumors and hepatic metastases. The most frightening postoperative complication of extensive hepatectomies is liver failure due to insufficient future liver remnant (FLR). The ALPPS technique (Associating Liver Partition and Portal vein Ligation for Staged hepatectomy) effectively increased the resectability of otherwise inoperable liver tumors (primary or secondary malignant liver tumor) by achieving a rapid and an effective hypertrophy of the FLR, which lowers postoperative liver failure risk...

Staged hepatectomy, particularly associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a recently developed advanced surgery for resecting liver tumors. However, large wound surfaces, incomplete drainage and high rates of mortality are vital limitations of ALPPS. The present case study describes a patient with liver cancer who underwent ALPPS surgery combined with negative pressure wound therapy. A 46-year-old male patient was hospitalized due to right upper abdominal pain. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography scan results indicated gallbladder cancer, accompanied by multiple liver metastases...

Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a recently introduced technique aimed to perform two-stage hepatectomy in patients with a variety of primary or secondary neoplastic lesions. ALPSS is based on a preliminary liver resection associated with ligation of the portal branch directed to the diseased hemiliver (DH), followed by hepatectomy after an interval of time in which the future liver remnant (FLR) hypertrophied adequately (partly because of preserved arterialization of the DH)...
