Abstract

Preservation of the future liver remnant (FLR) vascular integrity has always been considered crucial to achieving successful liver growths after major hepatectomies. Most surgeons appeared therefore reluctant to combine stage I of associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) with vascular reconstructions. Here we describe a case series, where we combine parenchymal transection and venous in- or outflow reconstruction of the FLR at stage I of ALPPS. In addition, the cold flush of the FLR or delayed portal vein embolization is applied in selected cases.
