BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The use of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy in resectable synchronous liver metastasis is ill defined. The aim of this study was to evaluate neo-adjuvant chemotherapy on outcomes following liver resection for synchronous CLM. METHODS: An analysis of a multi-centric cohort from the LiverMetSurvey International Registry, who had undergone curative resections for synchronous CLM was undertaken. Patients who received neo-adjuvant chemotherapy prior to liver surgery (group NAS; n = 693) were compared with those treated by surgery alone (group SG; n = 608)...

BACKGROUND: Although recent reports have suggested potential benefits of the laparoscopic approach in patients requiring major hepatectomy, it remains unclear whether conversion to open surgery could offset these advantages. This study aimed to determine the risk factors for and postoperative consequences of conversion in patients undergoing laparoscopic major hepatectomy (LMH). METHODS: Data for all patients undergoing LMH between 2000 and 2013 at two tertiary referral centres were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver resection for liver metastases from colorectal cancer (CRLM) is performed in a relatively small number of institutions. Its operative results have been reported to be comparable with that of open laparotomy; however, information on its oncologic outcomes is scarce. This study aimed to compare the long-term outcomes of laparoscopic hepatectomy (LH) and open hepatectomy (OH) to treat CRLM at a single institution. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed data from 168 consecutive patients who underwent LH (n = 100) or OH (n = 68) for CRLM...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of surgical resection (SR) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for single hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) 2  cm or less. BACKGROUND: The optimal management for Barcelona Clínic Liver Cancer (BCLC) very early-stage HCC is undetermined. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2013, a total of 237 (SR, 109; RFA, 128) patients with BCLC very early-stage HCC were enrolled. Their overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) were compared...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate prognostic impact of parenchymal-sparing hepatectomy (PSH) for solitary small colorectal liver metastasis (CLM). BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether PSH confers an oncologic benefit through increased salvageability or is a detriment through increasing recurrence rate. METHODS: Database of 300 CLM patients with a solitary tumor (≤ 30 mm in size) was reviewed from 1993 to 2013. A total of 156 patients underwent PSH and 144 patients underwent right hepatectomy, left hepatectomy, or left lateral sectionectomy (non-PSH group)...

AIMS: This study was conducted in order to investigate the indications for hepatecomy for multinodular hepatocellular carcinoma (MNHCC) in single institution. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records from 55 MNHCC patients, mainly with Child-Pugh A liver function, who underwent hepatectomy from January 2006 to December 2008. Both short- and long-term outcomes were analyzed. In addition, the prognostic significance of clinicopathological factors on overall survival (OS) was investigated by univariate analysis using the log-rank test...

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma involving all major hepatic veins was diagnosed in a 62-year-old man. Multidetector-row computed tomography showed a massive tumor occupying segments 2-5, 7, and 8, with invasion of all major hepatic veins, although the inferior right hepatic vein, draining the venous flow of segment 6, was clearly visualized. Therefore, we planned an extended left trisectionectomy, involving resection of segments 1-5, 7, and 8, with extrahepatic bile duct resection and concomitant resection of all major hepatic veins...

OBJECTIVE: To compare both incidence and types of postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) between laparoscopic major hepatectomy (LMH) and open major hepatectomy (OMH). BACKGROUND: LMHs are increasingly performed. Yet, the benefits of laparoscopy over laparotomy regarding PPCs remain unknown. METHODS: In this multi-institutional study, all patients undergoing OMH or LMH between 1998 and 2013 were retrospectively reviewed. Risk factors for PPCs were analyzed on multivariate analysis...

BACKGROUND: One quarter of colorectal cancer patients will present with liver metastasis at the time of diagnosis. Recent studies have shown that simultaneous resections are safe and feasible for stage IV colon cancer. Limited data are available for simultaneous surgery in stage IV rectal cancer patients. METHODS: One hundred ninety-eight patients underwent surgical treatment for stage IV rectal cancer. In 145 (73%) patients, a simultaneous procedure was performed...

BACKGROUND: Hydatid disease is endemic in certain areas of the world and it is located mostly in the liver. Intraperitoneal rupture is rare. Rupture may result from trauma or may occur spontaneously from increased pressure of the cystic fluid. Ruptured hydatid cyst is a rare cause of ascites, but should be considered in the differential diagnosis, especially in endemic areas. The diagnosis of ruptured hydatid cyst should be prompt because it requires emergency intervention. CASE PRESENTATION: The present case refers to a 62 year old Tunisian male admitted in our institution for diffuse abdominal distension...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) for metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) remains controversial. The objective of this manuscript was to perform a metaanalysis comparing outcomes of LLR with open liver resection (OLR) in patients with hepatic mCRC, and to identify which patients were suitable candidates for LLR. STUDY DESIGN: A PubMed search identified 2,122 articles. When filtered for case-matched articles comparing LLR with OLR for mCRC, 8 articles were identified consisting of 610 patients (242 LLR, 368 OLR)...

BACKGROUND: Although cryoablation (Cryo) has been advocated as an effective locoregional therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), few studies have compared the outcomes with those of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and microwave coagulation therapy (MCT). METHODS: Consecutive patients with primary HCCs of <5 cm received Cryo or RFA/MCT between 1998 and 2011 and were monitored for local recurrence (defined as a recurrent tumor at or in direct contact with the ablated area) and overall complication rates...

BACKGROUND: The Pringle maneuver is widely used in liver surgery to reduce intraoperative blood loss. However, total vascular inflow occlusion is frequently associated with ischemia reperfusion injury leading to postoperative liver dysfunction and impaired recovery. We describe herein an original procedure of modified Pringle maneuver (MPM) during laparoscopic liver resection with selective clamping of hepatic arterial inflow. METHODS: Of 183 laparoscopic major hepatectomies performed at the Institute Mutualiste Montsouris between January 1998 and March 2014, 19 patients required vascular clamping, and MPM was used in 6 patients...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) for large malignant tumors can be technically challenging. Data on this topic are scarce, and many question its feasibility, safety, and oncologic efficiency. This study aimed to assess outcomes of LLR for large (≥ 5 cm) and giant (≥ 10 cm) malignant liver tumors. METHODS: A prospectively collected database of 422 LLRs was reviewed from August 2003 to August 2013. The data for 52 patients undergoing LLR for large malignant tumors were analyzed...

OBJECTIVES: Determine whether inflow occlusion is correlated with peak-postoperative serum-transaminases (PSTs) and whether PST is predictive of outcome after liver resections. BACKGROUND: PST is used as the surrogate of ischemia reperfusion and as the main endpoint in prospective trials of inflow occlusion. This assumption has, however, not been validated. Furthermore, the impact of PST on the postoperative course is unknown. METHODS: This prospectively designed registered study included consecutive adult patients undergoing elective hepatectomy in 9 HPB centers...

OBJECTIVES: Analyze, at a national level, the adoption and practice of laparoscopic liver resections (LAP), compared to open resections (OPEN). BACKGROUND: LAP initiated 20 years ago, has been described for all hepatectomies, and is considered as the reference technique for some resections. There are, however, no data on its adoption outside selected specialty centers. METHODS: French Healthcare databases were screened to identify all patients who underwent an elective LAP or OPEN between 2007 and 2012...
