Robotic liver resection for HCC reduced length of hospital stay, ICU admissions

Robotic liver resection for hepatocellular carcinoma yielded better perioperative tolerability and may be a safe and effective alternative to open liver resection, according to research published in JAMA Surgery.“Open hepatectomies may still be preferred in certain cases as an oncologically adequate procedure [for HCC]. Another minimally invasive approach to hepatectomy is robotic liver resection (RLR), which may also reduce the risk of conversion to open liver resection (OLR) during complex hepatectomies,” Fabrizio Di Benedetto, MD, PhD, of the hepato-pancreato-biliary surgeryRead More
