Major hepatic resections can now be performed with much greater safety than formerly. This is largely a consequence of improved surgical and anesthetic techniques, which have in turn resulted from better understanding of the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry of the liver. The treatment of liver tumours by resection must be reappraised in the light of these advances. This paper reports twelve patients who have undergone major hepatic resection for neoplasm at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital over a ten-year period. The current indications for such surgery in the treatment of benign and malignant liver tumours are reviewed, and the results discussed.
