Laparoscopic Liver, Pancreas, and Biliary Surgery is an essential learning tool for all surgeons who manage patients considered for minimally invasive liver, pancreas and biliary surgery.

Led by Brice Gayet and Claudius Conrad, pioneers in laparoscopic liver, pancreas and biliary surgery, the authors have created a highly focused and multi–dimensional tool that takes the surgeon through the surgical procedures, one step at a time.  Using a combination of text, illustrations, and high–definition videos, the authors explain and illustrate their excellence in surgical technique in a detailed and reproducible fashion.

The textbook contains contribution from world renowned experts and thought leaders in the field.  They discuss key management concepts in the oncologic management of patients undergoing minimally invasive liver, pancreas and biliary resections.  

The accompanying comprehensive video atlas contains high–definition videos with a focus on true anatomic resections. The videos are supported by outstanding illustrations and 3D renderings of the relevant anatomy.

The authors expertly and logically demonstrate how to perform anatomic and non–anatomic liver, pancreas and biliary resections expertly and logically. They cover patient and port positioning for laparoscopic and robotic approaches, detailed anatomy, and didactic breakdown of the operation. Including numerous surgical tips and tricks, and practical reviews for the management of patients with liver, pancreas and biliary diseases before, during and after operations the volume covers:

  • Essential techniques (e.g. intraoperative ultrasound);
  • Segmentectomies (I–VIII) and bisegmentectomies;
  • Major hepatectomies, extended resections and living donor liver transplantation;
  • Pancreatectomies (e.g. Whipple) and Biliary resections;
  • Advanced laparoscopic technologies and robotics.

This unparalleled resource will help a wide range of surgeons including liver, pancreas, and biliary specialists, general surgeons, transplant surgeons, and surgical oncologists –– to improve their surgical technique of both open and minimally invasive surgery.
