abstract

  • Increasing experience with major hepatic resections has stimulated the development of improved resectional techniques and tools. A new high velocity water jet dissector is reported which offers significant advances over previously developed ultrasonic and low pressure water jet machines. It has been successfully used in 8 major hepatic resections with minimal blood loss, excellent visibility and without complications. The dissector is also of value in the exposure of intrahepatic bile ducts for biliary-enteric anastomosis.
