INTRODUCTION The ALPSS procedure has been recently introduced as an alternative to PVE for liver volume augmentation in cases of planned right trisectionectomy with small future RLV and high risk of PHLF. We retrospectively analysed our single centre experience with 15 ALPPS procedures in order to better assess the limits and indications of the procedure.
