[en] liver transplantation ; complications ; cancer
[en] Over the last 20 years, significant improvements in hepatic surgery and transplantation have allowed better results. Better patients selection, new preoperative modalities aiming at modifying the volume of the liver or the tumour, new surgical techniques, and better postoperative management are the keys to improved outcome. These progresses are reviewed in this article. In hepatic surgery, the latest surgical improvements are the possibility of laparoscopic hepatic resection and of radiofrequency ablation. Modern neoadjuvant chemotherapy may in some cases allow a reduction of large liver colorectal metastases and render them resectable. Improved radiological techniques allow better planning of the surgical resections, reduction of the risks by calculation of the residual liver mass, and induction of liver hypertrophy by preoperative portal embolisation. In liver transplantation, the most significant changes were the use of living related liver donors and of non-heart beating donors to overcome the cadaveric organ donor shortage.
