Liver Surgery: From Basics to Robotics, An Issue of Surgical Clinics
In this issue of Surgical Clinics of North America, a spectrum of liver surgery topics is summarized, bringing the reader up-to-date with the era of modern hepatic resection surgery. The basics of liver anatomy and history are reviewed, along with articles on hepatic cysts and liver abscess, imaging and work-up of incidental liver mass, management of benign liver lesions, hepatic resection nomenclature and techniques, laparoscopic liver resection, robotic liver surgery, emergency hepatic resection for liver trauma, repair of laparoscopic cholecystectomy injury, current approach to HCC, intra-hepatic cholangiocarcinoma, resection of metastatic colorectal cancer, neuroendocrine cancer metastases, hepatic ablation procedures, fulminant hepatic failure and when to transplant, and the current role of shunts versus TIPS for portal HTN.
"From the basics of liver surgery to more advanced robotics, this book is brief, up to date, contains good quality pictures, giving a solid overview of many different themes...The language is fluent and easily comprehensible, and the content feels richer than the slim 300 pages would suggest. I recommend this book especially to specialist candidates, but also specialists in gastrointestinal surgery, who will be able to enjoy it as a concise, straightforward supplement to their work."
