Little is known about the relation between liver regeneration and splenic size. We monitored serial changes in liver and spleen volumes using computed tomography in 24 patients with biliary cancer who underwent right hepatectomy or more extensive liver resection following portal vein embolization (PVE). Nonembolized hepatic segments increased in volume from 316 ± 97 cm3 (34% ± 8% of total liver volume) before PVE to 410 ± 115 cm3 (44% ± 8%) after PVE. The volume of nonembolized hepatic segments… CONTINUE READING
