Three Possible Variations in Ex Vivo Hepatectomy: Achieving R0 Resection by Auto-transplantation
- 69 Downloads
The collaboration of hepatopancreaticobiliary with transplant surgery expands technical options and opportunity for potentially curative resection in traditionally inoperable cases. We identified and describe three different types of ex vivo hepatic resections that include (1) explantation with formal hepatectomy, (2) explantation with re-implantation of the whole liver after vascular reconstruction, and (3) explantation with formal hepatectomy after future liver remnant volume augmentation.
