BackgroundDue to higher technical requirements, laparoscopic major hepatectomy (LMH) for primary hepatolithiasis have been limited to a few institutions. This retrospective study was performed to evaluate the therapeutic safety, and perioperative and long-term outcomes of LMH versus open major hepatectomy (OMH) for hepatolithiasis.MethodsFrom January 2012 to December 2016, 61 patients with hepatolithiasis who underwent major hepatectomy were enrolled, including 29 LMH and 32 OMH.

Laparoscopic middle-hepatic-vein-guided anatomical hemihepatectomy in the treatment of hepatolithiasis: a 10-year case study
L-MHV-H is safe and feasible for HL with certain advantages over TAH in improving the intraoperative stone clearance rate, reducing postoperative complication incidence and reducing stone and cholangitis recurrence rates. Expand
New management of hepatolithiasis: Can surgery be avoided? (with video).
The use of SpyGlass™ in symptomatic patients referred from the surgery unit as the first-line procedure confirmed the need for management of patients with HL in a multidisciplinary team. Expand
Application of Laparoscopic Technique in the Treatment of Hepatolithiasis.
In most cases, the laparoscopic technique could provide the advantages of less trauma, reduced blood loss, and faster postoperative recovery. Expand
A new method of near-infrared fluorescence image-guided hepatectomy for patients with hepatolithiasis: a randomized controlled trial
The efficacy of NIRF imaging with ICG using DPM-I for treating hepatolithiasis is demonstrated and is associated with less blood loss and lower rates of margins with dilated bile ducts. Expand
Economic analysis of open versus laparoscopic versus robotic hepatectomy: a systematic review and meta-analysis
LLR’s higher operative costs are offset by lower hospitalization costs compared to OLR leading to no statistically significant difference in total costs, while RLR appears to be a more expensive alternative approach. Expand
New management of hepatolithiasis: Can surgery be avoided? (with video)
To achieve technical success of the procedure and clinical success of patients with HL, a small-calibre endoscopic direct cholangiopancreatoscopy developed to explore and perform procedures in the bile and pancreatic ducts is targeted. Expand


Laparoscopic versus open left hemihepatectomy for hepatolithiasis.
If consideration is given to the appropriate indication criteria, including the extent of hepatectomy and the location and distribution of lesions, LLH may be an excellent choice for treatment of left-sided hepatolithiasis. Expand
Hepatectomy for Bilateral Primary Hepatolithiasis: A Cohort Study
In selected patients with biliary strictures and bilateral hepatolithiasis, partial hepatectomy associated with choledochoscopic lithotripsy is a safe and efficacious treatment, with a high immediate stone clearance rate, a low long-term stone recurrence rate and good long- term survival. Expand
Comparison of Laparoscopic Versus Open Left Hemihepatectomy for Left-Sided Hepatolithiasis
In left-sided hepatolithiasis, LLH was safe and effective: it resulted in low postoperative morbidity, no mortality and a high stone clearance rate, and there were no incidences of recurrence in the authors' study. Expand
Clinical study of laparoscopic versus open hepatectomy for malignant liver tumors
This study shows that laparoscopic hepatectomy for liver malignancy in selected patients is a safe, effective, and oncologically efficient procedure with better short-term results and similar survival outcomes to open hepateCTomy for Liver Malignancy after midterm follow-up. Expand
Comparison of laparoscopic versus open left-sided hepatectomy for intrahepatic duct stones
Laparoscopic hepatectomy is safe and effective for well-selected patients with left IHD stones, when performed by experienced surgeons, and resulted in shorter operation time and postoperative hospital stay, and a lower postoperative morbidity rate, than open hepateCTomy. Expand
Comparison of treatments for hepatolithiasis: hepatic resection versus cholangioscopic lithotomy.
Hepatic resection, when combined with postoperative cholangioscopic lithotomy, is a preferable treatment for left-sided stones with strictures and bilateral stones. Expand
Laparoscopic left hemihepatectomy: a safety and feasibility study of 19 cases
Laparoscopic left hemihepatectomy is a safe and feasible procedure for select patients and should be introduced and evaluated for safety and feasibility. Expand
Evaluation of long-term results and recurrent factors after operative and nonoperative treatment for hepatolithiasis.
In this long-term follow-up study, nonoperative therapy, biliary cirrhosis, residual stones, and biliary stricture were associated with recurrent stones and/or cholangitis after treatment. Expand
Outcomes of Liver Resection for Intrahepatic Stones: A Comparative Study of Unilateral Versus Bilateral Disease
Generally, patients with unilateral stones have better outcomes than those with bilateral stones after hepatectomy associated with cholangioscopic lithotomy, but for the patients with ELR equals to SAS, the stone recurrence rates of unilateral and bilateral stones are low and comparable. Expand
Methods of vascular control technique during liver resection: a comprehensive review.
The current role and status of various techniques of hepatic vascular occlusion during hepatic resection are reviewed and it is difficult to draw a definitive conclusion on the best technique of hepatatic vascular control. Expand
