The main goal of “Hepatic Surgery” is to introduce the reader to the modern era of liver surgery and to discuss its current features. The basics of liver anatomy are reviewed, along with the current surgical techniques for primary liver cancer and hepatic metastasis, as well as interventional radiology techniques for liver preparation before elective hepatic resections. This textbook provides a pleasant reading experience through a concise but comprehensive overview of surgical techniques thanks to an impressive list of contributors including experts from famous centers devoted to hepatic surgery around the world. The book puts together the multidisciplinary treatment for liver cancer from perspective of surgeons, oncologists, and interventional radiologists.
