Background The caudate lobe of the liver is located behind both major lobes and is surrounded by the inferior vena cava, three main hepatic veins, and the hepatic hilum. Despite a hard-to-approach anatomic location, isolated complete removal of the caudate lobe is recommended to improve curability in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This is because most patients with HCC cannot undergo caudate lobectomy (segmentectomy 1) with resection of adjacent liver regions due to their poor liver function.

To resect a small liver tumor located in the paracaval portion, we adopted transhepatic enucleation, i.e. enucleation of the tumor from the transected plane along the main portal fissure. In contrast

: We have devised a new technique for isolated caudate lobe resection in which we access the caudate lobe by separating the liver parenchyma along the interlobar plane. The safety and radicality of the procedure were evaluated in five patients: four with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and one with metastatic rectal cancer. All of the tumors were located mainly in the paracaval portion of the caudate lobe. The patients with HCC (three of four) underwent an anatomic caudate lobe resection by ident...

Background/Aims: Resection of the caudate lobe of the liver is difficult to perform because ofa deep location and an adjacency to the major vessels. Methodology: A total of 30 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) originating in the caudate lobe underwent hepatic resection. The lobe was classified to Spiegel's portion, the process portion, and the caval portion. The operative procedure undertaken was chosen on the basis of tumor location as well as hepatic function of each patient. Result...

Abstract Isolated caudate lobectomy is a challenging surgical procedure for which safe and reliable techniques have yet to be developed. Isolated caudate lobectomy was performed by initial inflow control of the caudate lobe, full mobilization of the liver from the inferior vena cava by dividing all short hepatic veins, and parenchymal division dorsal to the major hepatic veins with a clockwise rotation of the liver while the liver was selectively devascularized by Pringle's maneuver and occlusio...

During the last 16 years, we have resected small hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) measuring 5 cm or less from 362 patients, 266 of whom also had liver cirrhosis. The operative and hospital mortality rate were 1.7% and 1.9%, respectively. These showed a gradual decrease year by year in parallel with reduction of intraoperative blood loss achieved by the selective vascular occlusion technique and Pringle method. In 1989, 87% of hepatectomy patients were discharged without the need for whole blood ...

Abstract A new strategy for the treatment of hepatic malignancy located deep in the cirrhotic liver is reported. A 66-year-old man, who had a 3 cm hepatocellular carcinoma in the cranial part of the caudate lobe, underwent an isolated caudate lobectomy. By transecting along the interlobar plane and opening the hepatic hilus anteriorly, we resected almost the entire caudate lobe without loss of the remaining liver parenchyma.

: Complete resection of a rare hepatoblastoma in the caudate lobe, involving the inferior vena cava (IVC), is reported. After systemic chemotherapy, a 5-year-old child underwent exploratory laparotomy at another hospital, but resection was not attempted because the tumor in the caudate lobe had extensively invaded the retrohepatic IVC. However, because not only the lack of distant metastases but also the establishment of extrahepatic collaterals were confirmed by imaging, we thought it was possi...

Abstract Hepatic subsegmentectomy requires identification of the borders of tumor-bearing subsegment, usually achieved by injecting dye into the portal veins feeding the domain. We describe an alternative technique for performing systematic subsegmentectomy in patients with cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, in whom hepatic arterial and portal venous embolizations were already performed as a preoperative adjuvant. Under ultrasonic guidance, each of the neighboring portal units is sequential...

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)...

BACKGROUND The caudate lobe is located deep in the dorsal portion of the liver. Complete resection is an extremely demanding surgery due to the limited surgical field, especially in cases with severe intra-abdominal complications. A major concern of isolated caudate lobectomy is the difficulty associated with securing the contralateral visual field during parenchymal transection. To overcome this issue, we present a new technique for isolated caudate lobectomy that uses a modified hanging maneuv...

Background Hepatolithiasis often leads to atrophy-hypertrophy complex due to bile duct obstruction, inflammation or infection in the affected liver segments and compensatory response in the normal segments. In severe bilateral diffuse cases, main liver can all be atrophic, leaving the caudate lobe to be extremely hypertrophic. Subtotal (segment II-VIII) hepatectomy can be an option in selected patients under such circumstances. Since rare cases have been reported, our study aims to highlight the...

The caudate lobe lies between major vascular structures: the inferior vena cava posteriorly and the portal triad inferiorly and the right and the middle and left hepatic veins at the upper part [1]. Couinaud’s definition of the caudate lobe is based on morphological segmentation but not on portal perfusion. Thus, Kumon’s definition of the caudate lobe was widely accepted and applied, in which the caudate lobe was divided into three parts: the Spiegel lobe, paracaval portion, and caudate process ...

Abstract Background: The caudate lobe consists of the Spigelian lobe, paracaval portion, and the caudate process. It is in proximity to the right and middle hepatic veins, the inferior vena cava (IVC) posteriorly, and the portal triad anteriorly. Torrential bleeding can occur from the IVC and the short hepatic veins during dissection. There are few small case series on laparoscopic caudate lobectomy,1–7 many of which are on limited resection or combined resection with other lobes. Isolated total...

Abstract Introduction The caudate lobe is a distinct liver lobe and surgical resection requires expertise and precise anatomic knowledge. Left-sided approach was described for resection of small tumors originated in the Spiegel lobe but now the procedure has been performed even for tumors more than five centimeters. The aim of this study is to present three cases of tumor of caudate lobe underwent isolated lobectomy by left-sided approach. Presentation of case Three patients with metastasis of c...
