BACKGROUND: Robot-assisted laparoscopy has been introduced to overcome the limitations of conventional laparoscopy. This technique has potential advantages over laparoscopy, such as increased dexterity, three-dimensional view, and a magnified view of the operative field. Therefore, improved dexterity may make a robotic system particularly suited for liver resections, which require nonlinear manipulation, such as curved parenchymal transection, hilar dissection, and resection of posterosuperior segments...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) appears to be safe and effective as open liver resection (OLR) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, studies comparing LLR with ORL in elderly patients are limited. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes of LLR versus OLR for HCC in elderly patients. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was made comparing laparoscopic (n = 11) and open (n = 18) liver resections in elderly patients performed at the University of Naples "Federico II" between January 2010 and December 2014...

BACKGROUND: Changes to resident duty hour policies in the Flexibility in Duty Hour Requirements for Surgical Trainees ("FIRST") Trial could impact hospitalized patients' length of stay (LOS) by altering care coordination. LOS may also serve as a reflection of all complications, particularly those not captured in the FIRST Trial (eg, pneumothorax from central line). Programs were randomized to either maintaining current ACGME duty hour policies ("Standard Arm") or more flexible policies waiving rules on maximum shift lengths and time off between shifts ("Flexible Arm")...

Laparoscopic liver resection has been adopted slowly due to concerns for bleeding and oncologic outcomes. Currently, over 9,500 laparoscopic liver resections have been performed and reported worldwide. Numerous studies have shown the safety and oncologic equivalence of laparoscopic liver resection when compared to open resection. Pure laparoscopic and hand-assisted laparoscopic liver resection are the two most commonly used techniques for minimally invasive liver resection surgery. Advantages of the hand-port include tactile feedback, facilitation of liver mobilization, and ease of ability to control bleeding...

Background: The development of laparoscopic and robotic surgeries represents the modern era with the objective of improving patient outcomes; this surgical method is widespread in urology and general surgery. Retroperitoneal laparoscopic/robotic surgery is common in urologic surgery, but not in liver surgery. Tumors located in the posterosuperior aspect of the liver are difficult to access using a transperitoneal approach, and control of bleeding can also be difficult, especially in patients with cirrhosis...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to describe our experience with pure laparoscopic right hepatectomy (LRH) and to compare its outcomes with those of open right hepatectomy (ORH) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with liver cirrhosis. BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver resection has been reported as a safe and effective approach for the management of liver cancer; however, its outcomes have not been evaluated in a large cohort of HCC patients with liver cirrhosis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 152 patients who underwent pure LRH (n = 37) or ORH (n = 115) between June 2008 and July 2015 at the Asan Medical Center in Seoul, Korea...

BACKGROUND: Since minimally invasive procedures for living-donor right hepatectomy (LDRH) became popular in recent years, several studies comparing the outcomes of donors undergoing an upper midline incision (UMI) under laparoscopic assistance for LDRH with those undergoing the traditional open LDRH have been published. However, there are very few comparative studies of outcomes for a UMI for LDRH with and without laparoscopic-assistance. We designed the present study to compare the benefits and shortcomings of a UMI for LDRH with and without laparoscopic assistance...

Prior studies of laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) have evaluated long-term outcomes in terms of cancer survival, but few have evaluated nononcologic outcomes. This study analyzes long-term nondisease-specific complications associated with LLR and open liver resection (OLR). We performed a retrospective single-institution review of patients undergoing liver resection for any reason from January 2005 to December 2014. Long-term complication was defined as any complication not related to the primary disease process, and occurring more than 90 days after surgery, emphasizing incisional hernia (IH) and small bowel obstruction (SBO)...

BACKGROUND: The pure laparoscopic approach in right hepatectomy (LRH) for living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) is a controversial issue. Some authors have reported the procedure to be feasible but surgical outcomes and impact on short and long-term morbidity rates are yet to be determined. The aim of this study is to present the results of a preliminary 5 consecutive cases series of LRH for LDLT and to compare it with a successive cohort of open right hepatectomies (ORH) for LDLT...

Youlong Wang, Wenbin Ji, Xi Zhang, Jingwang Tan
BACKGROUND: Liver resection or enucleation has been the basic treatment for liver hemangioma. However, there were few reports about laparoscopic surgery (LS) of hemangioma. The intention of this study is to explore the indication and efficacy of LS for laparoscopic hepatectomy (LH) and develop an opinion of these modern developments. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Forty-four patients with LH underwent LS, with hemihepatic vascular occlusion (HVO group n = 24) or modified vascular occlusion (MVO group n = 20), and were retrospectively reviewed, including patients' demography, surgical technique, tumor size and location, blood loss, operation time, complications, modes of hepatic vascular occlusion and changes in postoperative liver function, and the difference in patients demography and operative outcome between HVO and MVO groups were compared as well...
