In situ hypothermic perfusion of the liver versus standard total vascular exclusion for complex liver resection.

Abstract

SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA We compare the results of liver resection performed under in situ hypothermic perfusion versus standard total vascular exclusion (TVE) of the liver <60 minutes and > or =60 minutes in terms of liver tolerance, liver and renal functions, postoperative morbidity, and mortality. The safe duration of TVE is still debated. Promising… (More)
