Techniques of Liver Surgery is a concise, step-by-step guide to a range of techniques used in liver surgery, from standard approaches to transplantation.
The book is divided into twelve chapters, beginning with indications for liver resection, and techniques for transection of the liver. Subsequent chapters cover operations for benign lesions, carcinoma of the gall bladder and bile ducts, hepatocellular carcinoma, and colorectal liver metastases. Later chapters focus on liver transplants, covering procurement of the liver, recipient hepatectomy and implantation. The closing chapters cover liver transplant from a living donor.
Each chapter assesses indications, contraindications, and preoperative planning, before providing a full step-by-step explanation of the procedure. The book also features a detailed description of the "W" technique, a safer technique for performing the hepatic artery anstomosis in living donor liver transplantation.
Enhanced by 240 full colour images and illustrations, Techniques of Liver Surgery is an ideal resource for hepatobilliary and transplant surgeons.
