Laparoscopic versus open liver resection: a meta-analysis of long-term outcome.

Parks KR, Kuo YH, Davis JM, O' Brien B, Hagopian EJ - HPB (Oxford) (2013)

Bottom Line: Subset analyses of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and colorectal metastases (CRM) were performed.There was no difference in the 1-, 3-, and 5-year survival for HCC or in the 1-year survival for CRM, however, a survival advantage was found for CRM at 3 years (LHep 80% versus OHep 67.4%, P = 0.036).Laparoscopic surgery should be considered an acceptable alternative for the treatment of malignant liver tumours.
