Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) has become a standard procedure for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) as well as liver metastases and other benign and malignant liver tumors (1-3). Numerous cohort studies and their reviews or meta-analyses comparing LLR with open liver resection (OLR) for HCC frequently have serious selection biases in terms of the differences in the size, number, tumor location, and malignancy degree (4-6).

Background Previous studies demonstrated that liver function in a veno-occlusive region is approximately 40% of that in a non-veno-occlusive region after hepatectomy with excision of major hepatic vein. We validated the preoperative assessment of future remnant liver (FRL) function based on 40% decreased function of the veno-occlusive region.

Great effort has been paid to decrease blood loss during hepatectomy. Excessive blood loss and/or allogeneic blood transfusion can cause an increased risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality and may lead to a greater risk of early tumor recurrence (1-4). Hepatic steatosis or steatohepatitis is present in 30–50% of patients in the Western countries and can increase blood loss and morbidity in patients undergoing hepatectomy for colorectal liver metastases (5-7). Steatotic livers are hypertro...
