OBJECTIVE: To propose an algorithm for resecting hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the caudate lobe. BACKGROUND: Owing to a deep location, resection of HCC originating in the caudate lobe is challenging, but a plausible guideline enabling safe, curable resection remains unknown. METHODS: We developed an algorithm based on sublocation or size of the tumor and liver function to guide the optimal procedure for resecting HCC in the caudate lobe, consisting of 3 portions (Spiegel, process, and caval)...

The surgical indications for liver metastasis from bile duct cancer remain contentious, because surgery is generally thought unlikely to improve survival. However, recent reports show that long-term survival has been achieved with liver resection of metastasis from recurrent bile duct cancer in selected patients. Liver resection for liver metastasis from bile duct cancer was proposed only when the following criteria were met: liver-only metastasis, a solitary tumor, and no increase in the number...

Abstract Background Liver stiffness measurement using magnetic resonance elastography can assess the severity of liver fibrosis, which is significantly associated with recurrence after curative resection for hepatocellular carcinoma. The aim of this prospective study was to investigate whether preoperative liver stiffness measurement by magnetic resonance elastograhy can predict recurrence after curative resection for hepatocellular carcinoma. Methods Patients who underwent preoperative liver st...

There is little information on the impact of aging on liver resection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The aim of study was to evaluate the prognostic impact of the patient's age on the long-term survival after resection of HCC. The postoperative outcomes of the 291 elderly (≥ 70 years) and 340 younger (< 70 years) patients underwent curative liver resection for HCC were analyzed using multivariate and propensity-score matching. Risk score were calculated from the results of Cox regression ana...

BACKGROUND Subcuticular sutures reduce wound complication rates only in clean surgeries. Repeat resection is frequently required in liver surgery, due to the high recurrence rate (30-50%) of liver cancers. The aim of this study is to assess that subcuticular sutures is superior to staples in liver surgery. METHODS This single-centre, single-blinded, randomised controlled trial was conducted at a university hospital between January 2015 and October 2018. Patients were randomly assigned (1:1) to r...

The presence of esophageal varices (EV) is a phenotype of portal hypertension, and the indications of liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with concomitant EV are conflicting. This retrospective study aimed to elucidate if there is justification for liver resection in patients with EV. The surgical outcomes were compared between the patients who underwent resection for HCC with EV (EV group) and those without EV (non-EV group) after propensity-score matching. More bleed...

Liver cancer frequently requires repeated liver resections due to the high recurrence rate. The aim of this study was to clarify whether subcuticular sutures reduce wound complication rates following repeat incisions. Data from 382 repeated liver resections in 1,245 consecutive patients were assessed. Patients were divided into a Subcuticular sutures group and a Skin staples group on the basis of the wound-closure method. To avoid bias in analysing wound complications, data were matched to adjus...
