Longmire, called it a ‘‘hostile’’ organ because it welcomes malignant cells and sepsis so warmly, bleeds so copiously, and is often the first organ to be injured in blunt abdominal trauma. To balance these negative factors, the liver has two great attributes: its ability to regenerate after massive loss of substance, and its ability, in many cases, to forgive insult.
This book covers a wide spectrum of topics including, history of liver surgery, surgical anatomy of the liver, techniques of liver resection, benign and malignant liver tumors, portal hypertension, and liver trauma. Some important topics were covered in more than one chapter like liver trauma, portal hypertension and pediatric liver tumors.
As the editor, I wish to thank my colleagues, the authors, for their co-operation and desire to share their precious experience with the medical community. They are well-known experts from many centers across the world. On their behalf, I wish to express the hope that our publication will facilitate access to the latest scientific achievements in the field of liver surgery all across the world.
This book is dedicated to our Patients without whose goodwill and trust, no progress in medicine would be possible. To all my colleagues at the National Liver Institute in Egypt who supported me, and embraced me with their warm feelings: I love you all. To professor, Amr Helmy, and all my professors who so generously guided me by their example, wisdom and insights: thank you. Finally, to Ms. Romana Vukelic, who shared me the birth of this book, and to Ms. Danijela Duric who completed the job as the publishing manager: thank
you, Romana and Danijela…
