This publication offers an up-to-date review of the most recent developments in regard to new technologies for surgical resection of the liver. Various topics are presented, and the results of the author's experiences are critically discussed. The issues range from the preoperative evaluation of liver function, the intraoperative use of new surgical devices, ultrasonography and isotopes, and alternative approaches to resections such as laparoscopy to complementary or alternative procedures like arterial chemoembolization, pump infusion chemotherapy and living-related donor liver transplantation. Covering physiopathological, surgical and technical aspects, this book contains a wealth of valuable information for abdominal surgeons, hepatologists and oncologists. It will also be useful for continuing medical education.
