Background/Aims: Transverse hepatectomy, removal of hepatic segments IVB, V, VI, (III) in continuity with the gallbladder through the transverse portal plane, was first introduced by Paul Sugarbaker in 1990. In 1995 the first transverse hepatectomy in Hungary was carried out by our workgroup. This article summarizes our experience with transverse hepatectomies during the period from 1995 to 2008. Methodology: During this time 72 trisegmentectomies were performed 22 out of these operations were transverse hepatectomies. Results: The average resection time for transverse hepatectomy was 1 hour and 20 minutes, there was an average 0.8 unit blood transfusion requirement per patient, the average exclusion time was 20.6 minutes, the average time spent in hospital postoperatively was 10.1 days and there were 2 perioperative deaths due to sepsis and hemorrhagic shock. Conclusions: In our experience transverse hepatectomy proved to be a bloodless, relatively easy procedure, which enables safe removal of the antero-lateral segments. This new type of major hepatic resection is very useful in metastasis surgery and has minimal associated morbidity and mortality.
