Minimally Invasive Approach in the Setting of ALPPS Procedure: a Systematic Review of the Literature

ConclusionsMIS-ALPPS appears to be safe, with potentially lower morbidities and mortalities relative to open patients. The present results should be considered with caution. A limited number of articles exist on this topic. Furthermore, selection biases exist when comparing open versus MIS-ALPPS data. Registry studies are needed to better define the outcomes of patients undergoing MIS-ALPPS.

Conclusions: Compared with RFA, MIH provided better long-term survival outcomes in patients with early-stage HCC, with no increase in the incidence of complications. When feasible, MIH should be considered a first-line treatment for this patient population.Dig Surg

Conclusion: MIS without decompression would be a good choice for patients with HCC spinal metastasis of ESCC grade 2, especially those with limited prognosis, mechanical instability and no neurologic deficit. PMID: 30919607 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionWe present a case of paracaval, subdiaphragmatic, recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma in which the tumor was only reachable after one-lung left-sided ventilation that was successfully treated by percutaneous ultrasound-guided microwave ablation.

ConclusionsMILR for HCC is associated with a shorter hospital LOS and reduced postoperative complication rates, even after controlling for important patient and clinicopathologic confounders, compared to OLR. Efforts to expand the use of MILR for hepatobiliary surgery are warranted.

schke J Abstract BACKGROUND: In spite of convincing results from internationally prominent liver centres, laparoscopic liver surgery is not widely used in Germany. A structured program to develop laparoscopic liver surgery was established in 2015 at the Department of Surgery, Charité Hospital, Berlin, in order to provide support for establishing this approach in German hospitals. METHODS: We now report the results of our centre for 250 consecutive laparoscopic liver resections between 12/2013 and 1/2018. A retrospective analysis was performed with respect to indications, patient characteristics, comple...

AbstractDespite advantages of minimally invasive surgery, many hepatobiliary surgeons are hesitant to offer this approach for major hepatic resection due to concerns of difficulty in liver manipulation, bleeding control, and suboptimal oncologic outcomes. The robotic surgical system has revolutionized the way traditional laparoscopic liver resection is undertaken. Limitations of traditional laparoscopy are being resolved by robotic technology. We aimed to describe aspects of minimally invasive liver surgery and our standardized technical approach. We discussed technical aspects of performing robotic total right hepatic lob...

Rationale: Rectal neuroendocrine tumor (NET) is a relatively rare tumor. Well-differentiated NETs (G1 and G2) rarely display distant metastasis at initial diagnosis. Currently, treatment for the primary lesions of rectal NETs with liver metastasis remains controversial. The liver metastasis was resected in local hospital. Transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) has emerged as an effective minimally invasive surgery for local resection of lower rectal lesions. Herein, we reported the initial application of TEM to remove the rectal primary lesion in patients with low rectal NETs (G2) with giant liver metastases. Patient c...
