Abstract

Two hundred and twenty-nine resections of hepatic tumors were performed over the past 10 years. The intraoperative death rate, 30-day operative mortality and major complication rate were 1.3%, 8.3% and 20%, respectively. Both morbidity and mortality were significantly related to the type of surgery and to the extent of the resection to contiguous organs and/or structures. Cirrhotic patients (40% in hepatocellular carcinoma) had a higher mortality rate (19%). Intraoperative blood loss was related to the extent of the resection and was significantly higher in patients with major complications and/or death. The main problem was postoperative liver failure in cirrhotic patients, which is difficult to predict and to treat.
