BACKGROUND Major liver resection has evolved as the mainstay of treatment for patients with perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (pCCA). Here we assessed the suitability of preoperative future liver remnant (FLR) measurement to predict perioperative complications, since surgical morbidity and mortality are high compared to other malignancies. METHODS Between 2011 and 2016, 91 patients with pCCA underwent surgery in curative intent at our institution. The associations of surgical complications with FLR a...

Introduction The extent of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting response has varied globally The European and African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (E-AHPBA), the premier representative body for practicing HPB surgeons in Europe and Africa, conducted this survey to assess the impact of COVID-19 on HPB surgery Methods An online survey was disseminated to all E-AHPBA members to assess the effects of the pandemic on unit capacity, management of HPB cancers, use of COVID-19 screening and o...

Abstract Background Pancreatic duct occlusion (PDO) without anastomosis is a technique proposed to mitigate the clinical consequences of postoperative pancreatic fistulas (POPF) after pancreaticoduodenectomy. The aim of this study was to appraise the morbidity following PDO through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Methods A systematic search of MEDLINE, Embase, and Web Of Science identified studies reporting outcomes of PDO following pancreaticoduodenectomy. Pooled prevalence rates of post...

Abstract Background Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a recognized sequalae of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. This study aimed to identify long-term survival and prognostic factors after curative resection for HCC among patients with chronic HCV infection. Methods From a Chinese multicenter database, the data of consecutive patients with HCV infection undergoing curative liver resection for initial HCC between 2006 and 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. Postopera...

Abstract Background Various, often conflicting, estimates for post-operative morbidity and mortality following ALPPS have been reported in the literature, suggesting that considerable center-level variation exists. Some of this variation may be related to center volume and experience. Methods Using data from seventeen centers who were early adopters of the ALPPS technique, we estimated the variation, by center, in standardized 90-day mortality and comprehensive complication index (CCI) for patie...
Abstract The pathogenesis of portal hypertension differs in patients with small for size syndrome (SFSS) after living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) and postoperative liver failure (POLF) after liver resection. This difference has important implications in the prevention and management of POLF.

Abstract Background Laparoscopic fenestration has largely replaced open fenestration of liver cysts. However, most hepatectomies for polycystic liver disease (PCLD) are performed open. Outcomes data on laparoscopic hepatectomy for PCLD are lacking. Methods Patients who underwent surgery for PCLD at a single institution between 2010 and 2019 were reviewed and grouped by operative approach. Pre- and post-operative volumes were calculated for patients who underwent resection. Primary outcomes were:...

Abstract Background Several local ablative modalities have been introduced for the treatment of locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). However, there is no consensus on how to evaluate the imaging response after treatment. A systematic review was performed regarding the use of imaging for response assessment in LAPC. Methods A systematic literature search was conducted in PubMed. Studies reporting imaging outcomes were included in the review. Studies were excluded if the imaging outcomes cou...

Abstract Background The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of incisional hernia (IH) in a population-based cohort following gallstone surgery and to identify associated risk factors. Methods All cholecystectomies registered in the Swedish register for cholecystectomy and ERCP from 2006 to 2014 were identified. Data regarding post-procedural development of IH was obtained from the National Patient Register. Results A total of 81 964 cholecystectomies were identified. A laparoscopic,...
