Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes between laparoscopic partial liver resection and open partial hepatectomy for tumors in the posterosuperior segments. The clinical outcomes of patients who underwent either laparoscopic (n = 20) or open (n = 44) resection in segments 7/8 of the liver were initially evaluated. Because of disparities in the background characteristics, a case-matched study (1:1) was conducted. In addition, a comparative study of the patients who met the institutional criteria for laparoscopic partial hepatectomy was performed. In the case-matched study, the laparoscopic technique required a longer operation time (p = 0.001), but was associated with less intraoperative blood loss (p = 0.021), a lower incidence of major complications (p = 0.014), higher levels of serum albumin on postoperative days 3 and 7 (p = 0.031 and p = 0.035), and earlier discharge (p = 0.001) than open resection. The results of the latter study were similar to those of the case-matched analysis. Laparoscopic partial hepatectomy was a feasible procedure for treating tumors in the posterosuperior segments without compromising oncological safety and yielded better short-term outcomes than open techniques. In addition, this study provides concrete selection criteria for laparoscopic partial hepatectomy for difficult lesions.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 September 2018.
All research outputs
#11,304,343
of 12,706,057 outputs
Outputs from Surgery Today
#406
of 608 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#227,086
of 262,621 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgery Today
#5
of 9 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,706,057 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 608 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 262,621 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 9 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 4 of them.
