Different vascular clamp methods in liver surgery have led to less complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results after hepatic resection involving different vascular clamping methods and liver function outcome. Our study examined 46 patients who underwent surgery for liver lesions, developed on cirrhotic and noncirrhotic livers, applying the technique of selective clamping and pedicular clamping. There was one death (1/17; 5.9%) due to postoperative liver failure which occurred in a cirrhotic liver patient who underwent left hepatectomy with pedicular clamping. Complication rate was higher, but not significant (4/7; 57.1%) in the group with selective clamping compared to those with pedicular clamping (3/10; 30%). Hemorrhagic complications were observed in a higher rate among patients with selective clamping (3/7; 42.9%) compared to those with pedicular clamping (1/10; 10%). Selective clamping seems to find major indications in patients with chronic liver disease undergoing minimal hepatic resections. Intermittent pedicular clamping seems to be more effective in regards to blood loss and postoperative hepatic function

Abstract

Different vascular clamp methods in liver surgery have led to less complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results after hepatic resection involving different vascular clamping methods and liver function outcome. Our study examined 46 patients who underwent surgery for liver lesions, developed on cirrhotic and noncirrhotic livers, applying the technique of selective clamping and pedicular clamping. There was one death (1/17; 5.9%) due to postoperative liver failure which occurred in a cirrhotic liver patient who underwent left hepatectomy with pedicular clamping. Complication rate was higher, but not significant (4/7; 57.1%) in the group with selective clamping compared to those with pedicular clamping (3/10; 30%). Hemorrhagic complications were observed in a higher rate among patients with selective clamping (3/7; 42.9%) compared to those with pedicular clamping (1/10; 10%). Selective clamping seems to find major indications in patients with chronic liver disease undergoing minimal hepatic resections. Intermittent pedicular clamping seems to be more effective in regards to blood loss and postoperative hepatic function
