Laparoscopic Liver, Pancreas and Biliary Surgery: Textbook and Illustrated Video Atlas is the perfect learning tool for all surgeons managing patients requiring advanced liver, pancreas and biliary surgery minimally invasively.

This highly immersive text and video atlas will provide surgeons from trainee to advanced levels of practice, including, general surgeons, hepato-pacreatico-biliary surgeons, transplant surgeons and surgical oncologists, with a step-by-step, multi-media teaching atlas on performing laparoscopic liver surgery, anatomically correct, safely and effectively.

The atlas will teach the surgeons to perform anatomic liver resections of each liver segment expertly and logically, and will cover lobectomies, extended resections, advanced laparoscopic pancreas surgery (including Whipple) and other procedures. A special emphasis is placed on reproducibility of excellence in surgical technique.

Each video will be supported by outstanding illustrations for each technique and 3D renderings of the relevant anatomy. The educational step-by step high-definition videos teach everything you need to know, including critical aspects like patient positioning, port placement, dissection and much more.

Led by the pioneers in laparoscopic liver, pancreas and biliary surgery, Brice Gayet and Claudius Conrad, the textbook-chapters will be authored by world experts and will contain surgical tips and tricks garnered from their unique experiences, to improve care, management of complications, relevant society guidelines and excellence in oncologic care for patients with hepato-pancreato-biliary cancers.

"This is a fantastic resource. It is thorough in its discussion of the pertinent anatomy and the accompanying videos help to further describe these often daunting operative approaches...Given the increasing emphasis on laparoscopy, this is a timely addition to the literature and an excellent resource for hepatobiliary surgeons." (Doody Enterprises 21/04/2017)

"This textbook is a great learning tool for surgeons interested in laparoscopic hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) surgery. It has a unique mix of chapters and videos that are relevant to surgeons at all levels of experience in the field. The focus of the book is on what skills are needed to develop and improve laparoscopic HPB techniques. Importantly, the text stresses the need for in-depth knowledge of open HPB surgery before tackling advanced laparoscopic cases...The editors have provided helpful commentary with each chapter to alert the reader to the key messages for each selected topic. One of the highlights of the book is the online videos that provide examples of most liver, pancreas, and spleen resections. These videos include narration and schematics to demonstrate port placement. The editorial team pairs a senior HPB surgeon with a more junior HPB surgeon, creating a book with a wide audience.....This book is also useful for surgeons with some laparoscopic HPB experience who are interested in expanding theri practice...Overall, this book is worth the investment for surgeons interested in expanding their laparoscopic HPB surgery capabilities" (Journal Annals of Surgery 25th July 2017)
