Long-Term Survival After Liver Resection for Colorectal Liver Metastases in Patients With Hepatic Pedicle Lymph Nodes Involvement in the Era of New Chemotherapy Regimens
This study showed that the localization of HPLN metastases within area 1 or 2 does not anymore affect survival after CLM resection, indicating that curative intent R0 liver resection with HPLn dissection can offer the only potential cure for patients with CLM who present with H PLN involvement.
Simultaneous trans-hepatic portal and hepatic vein embolization before major hepatectomy: the liver venous deprivation technique
Trans-hepatic LVD technique is feasible, well tolerated and provides fast and important hypertrophy of the FRL, and needs to be further evaluated and compared to portal vein embolization.
