Advances in resectional hepatic surgery

Edward J. Immelman

Abstract


The past decade has seen an improvement in the results of hepatic resectional surgery. This has been due to several factors, of which improved diagnostic method is the most important.

Careful patient selection and pre-operative preparation are essential. Advances in surgical technique will in future result in better prognosis, and bigger resections also assist in the understanding of hepatic function.
