A liver resection is the surgical removal of all or a portion of the liver. It is also referred to as a hepatectomy, full or partial. A complete liver resection is performed in the setting of a transplant a diseased liver is removed from a deceased donor (cadaver).
Liver resection requires general anesthesia. The operation can take 2 to 5 hours. A blood transfusion is not usually needed for this operation. You may stay in the hospital for 5 to 7 days or as long as 2 weeks after surgery.
Liver Cancer: Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Radiofrequency ablation, or RFA, is used primarily to shrink or slow down the growth of hepatocellular carcinoma, and is not considered a curative procedure, although survival rates are good. It is used in liver cancer patients who are not good candidates for surgery.
Only a small number of them are for patients with liver cancer. ... Possible risks and side effects: Like partial hepatectomy, a liver transplant is a major operation with serious risks (bleeding, infection, blood clots, complications from anesthesia, etc.). But there are some additional risks after this surgery.
As leaders in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgical liver resection, our surgeons can remove certain benign or malignant liver tumors through three or four keyhole-sized incisions.
Regional means the cancer has grown into nearby organs or has spread to nearby lymph nodes, and includes stages IIIC and IVA cancers. For regional stage liver cancer, the 5-year survival rate is about 11%. Distant means that the cancer has spread to distant organs or tissues and is the same as stage IVB.
A liver transplant is not useful if the cancer has spread out of the liver, because there will be cancer cells left behind in the body after the operation. So the operation would not get rid of all the cancer. You may not be able to have a liver transplant if you have very severe liver cirrhosis.
Any liver cancer is difficult to cure. Primary liver cancer is rarely detectable early, when it is most treatable. Secondary or metastatic liver cancer is hard to treat because it has already spread. The liver's complex network of blood vessels and bile ducts makes surgery difficult.
More than half of all people diagnosed with primary liver cancer have cirrhosis -- a scarring condition of the liver commonly caused by alcohol abuse. Hepatitis B and C and hemochromatosis can cause permanent damage and liver failure. Liver cancer may also be linked to obesity and fatty liver disease.
Staging a cancer helps determine the prognosis of the disease, which is the chance of recovery, and the types of treatment that are most appropriate. In general, only early-stage liver cancer can be cured. ... Metastatic (secondary) liver cancer is cancer that has spread from another part of the body to the liver.
For the 43% of people who are diagnosed at an early stage, the 5-year survival rate is 31%. If liver cancer has spread to surrounding tissues or organs and/or the regional lymph nodes, the 5-year survival rate is 11%. If the cancer has spread to a distant part of the body, the 5-year survival rate is 3%.
Without treatment, the median survival for stage A liver cancer is 3 years. With treatment, between 50 and 70 out of 100 people (between 50 – 70%) will survive for 5 years or more.
