OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to validate clinical risk scores in patients underwent laparoscopic resection of colorectal liver metastases (CLM) with 5 years follow-up or more, and assess 5- and 10-year actual survival in this group. METHODS: A total of 516 laparoscopic liver resections were performed in 406 patients with CLM between February 1998 and September 2015. A follow-up of 5 and 10 years could be assessed in 144 and 29 patients, respectively. The Fong score, pre- and postoperative Basingstoke Predictive Index (BPI), Nordlinger score, and Iwatsuki score were validated...

Utilization of robotic techniques for resection of the liver is slowly gaining acceptance in specific situations and is now being applied to more challenging endeavors, such as major hepatectomy for cancer. This review provides a summary of robotic applications in liver surgery, with specific attention perioperative outcomes, oncologic outcomes, cost, and comparison to conventional laparoscopic techniques of liver resection. We also discuss future applications of robotic-assisted liver surgery.

BACKGROUND: We sought to define trends in the use of epidural analgesia (EA) for hepatopancreatic procedures, as well as to characterize inpatient outcomes relative to the use of EA. METHODS: The Nationwide Inpatient Sample database was queried to identify all elective hepatopancreatic surgeries between 2000 and 2012. In-hospital outcomes were compared among patients receiving EA vs conventional analgesia using propensity matching. RESULTS: EA utilization was 7...

BACKGROUND: Two-stage hepatectomies generally are selected for patients with multiple bilobar colorectal liver metastases (CLMs) involving the hepatic veins (HV) at the caval confluence to reduce the risk of postoperative hepatic failure due to insufficient remnant liver.1 (,) 2 The use of IOUS based on well-established criteria offers alternative technical solutions to the staged resections.3 (,) 4 This report describes a sophisticated IOUS-guided parenchyma-sparing procedure. METHODS: A 57-year-old woman with multiple CLMs underwent surgery...
