    Because of the possibility of injury to the left medial section of the bile duct (B4) and the presumed higher recurrence rate of hepatolithiasis, some surgeons have recently preferred left hepatectomy for left hepatolithiasis. We investigated the appropriate treatment for left hepatolithiasis by...

    It has been noticed that hyperamylasemia occurs after hepatic resection. Between July 1973 and April 1991, hyperamylasemia was observed in 57 (42%) of 136 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and 13 (32%) of 41 patients with metastatic liver cancer. The incidence was not correlated with extent...
