LIVER RESECTION UNDER HYPOTHERMIC PERFUSION

Objectives. To demonstrate the experience of the liver resection applying methods of hypothermic perfusion in conditions of the total vascular exclusion at tumors and parasitic lesions localization in the hepatocaval confluence and/or inferior vena cava regions.
Methods. The treatment results of 155 patients who had undergone the liver resections (LR) were analyzed. Vascular occlusion techniques (Pringle maneuver, selective vascular isolation, total vascular exclusion (TVE)) were applied in 80 patients (51,6%). Pringle maneuver was used in 68 patients (43,8%), selective vascular isolation in 42 (27%), total vascular isolation (TVI) in 4 (6%) and TVE with hypothermic perfusion in 5 (3,3%).
Results. The average time of LR was longer at TVI with hypothermic perfusion, 712155 min, then at standard major LR, 280154 min (Mann-Whitney, p=0,00001). The average blood loss at LR with TVI and hypothermic perfusion (n=9) was 28801948 ml and 588478 ml at standard major LR (n=47; Mann-Whitney, p=0,00003). Hepatic failure developed in 1 of 5 LR at hypothermic perfusion (20%) and in 7 of 47 standard major LR (14,9%). Biliary complications developed in 3 of 9 (33,3%) LR with TVI and hypothermic perfusions and in 9 of 47 (19,1%) at standard major LR, but the difference was not statistically significant. There were no mortality cases after LR with TVI and LR with hypothermic perfusions. Mortality after standard major LR made up 6,3% (3 of 47; Fisher test, p=0,9).
Conclusions. Liver resection at the hypothermic conservation promotes the overcoming limitations of the thermal ischemia and brings an additional time for resection and reconstruction as well as expands the possibilities of the resection surgery and permits to avoid the liver transplantation at benign hardly accessible liver tumors.
