AbstractLiver resection remains to be the curative treatment of choice for both malignant and benign liver tumors. With advances in hepatic surgery and operative technique, liver resection has evolved from a rough and hasty procedure to a fine and delicate operation. Such surgical advances have resulted in a dramatic reduction of operative mortality, from over 50% in early series, to less than 10% in recent decades. Targeting a ‘zero’ mortality has even become a realistic goal to achieve. However, the postoperative complications rate remains largely unchanged over the years despite reduction in operative mortality and is in the range of 20–30%. Liver failure, bile leak and sepsis are serious complications that could lead to a fatal outcome. In this chapter, we will present our approach for prevention, diagnosis and management of these complications.
