Summary

This article presents our experiences in hepatic resection of 467 cases over a period of 22 years with a total operative mortality of 4.0%. Of the 467 cases, malignancies were found in 288 cases, benign lesions in 179 cases; extensive hemihepatectomy was done in 194 cases, and lobectomy or partial resection in 273 cases. Follow-up results: The cases of non-malignant tumors are living well. In cases of metastatic liver cancer, the mean survival time was 1.4 years. The 5-year survival rate of primary liver cancer was 24.8%, while that of the malignant tumors sized less than 5 cm in diameter amounted to 53.8%. In this paper, the authors focussed the discussion on the selection of patients, judgment of the resectability of tumor during operation, improvements in operative technic and the prevention and treatment of surgical complications.
