This book provides a comprehensive study on hepatic surgery. The liver was referred to as a hostile organ by Longmire, since it welcomes sepsis and malignant cells so warmly, bleeds so freely, and is usually the first organ to get injured in blunt abdominal trauma. To balance these negative factors, it has an excellent characteristic: its capability to regenerate after a great loss of substance. This book highlights a great range of topics including the surgical anatomy of the liver, history of liver surgery, portal hypertension, liver trauma, methods of liver resection, and malignant and benign liver tumors. This book would benefit as a good source of reference to students, researchers and surgeons.
