Treatment of Liver Metastases at the Clínic

Reading time: 1 min

The Hospital Clínic performs more than 100 liver resections per year (a minimum of 3 surgeries per week) with minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery has the advantage that the patient recovers more quickly, with less postoperative pain and fewer cardiac and pulmonary complications. These techniques, widely implemented in other types of diseases today, also play a fundamental role in liver surgery.

The Hospital Clínic is a pioneering centre in the implementation of these approaches, which have improved and become standardised. This is reflected in the organisation of different courses and the publication of various articles explaining the experience with these techniques and their good results.

One of the main techniques used at the Clínic for liver metastases is 3-dimensional laparoscopic surgery, which facilitates the operation. Indocyanine green fluorescence is another technique that is beginning to be applied. Its purpose is to plan interventions and be able to identify lesions that are otherwise difficult to see during an operation.

Specialists dedicated to liver metastases actively participate in the search for new treatments aimed at achieving greater control of the disease and preventing tumour spread, as well as in the development of new surgical strategies so that certain liver lesions, previously considered unresectable, can be resected.
