Abstract

Selective clamping of Glisson's pedicle at the hilum is effective for systematized hepatectomy. Because of the development of stapling devices, a Glissonean transection using a surgical stapler has been used widely. However, the risk of accidental stapling of the biliary confluence still remains. In this paper we report about a case that underwent selective Glissonean transection using an endolinear stapling device. We used this standardized technique in five patients without any major complications. The particular case to which we refer was a 71-year-old woman with hepatocellular carcinoma in the right lobe. The anterior and posterior branches of Glisson's pedicle were independently divided using an endolinear stapling device. The right hepatic lobectomy was achieved with little bleeding and in addition there was a shortened operation time and the postoperative course was uneventful. In the patient with liver cirrhosis, postoperative complications often related to liver failure. We herein advocate a standardized safe hepatectomy using endolinear stapling devices. We believe that the shortened operative time and decreased risk of complications by selective Glissonean transection as well as hepatic vein transection using stapling devices contribute to the improved short-term outcome.
