Right posterior section group
Patients with tumors in the right posterior section of the liver (segments 6-7)
Procedure: Anatomical right posterior sectionectomy of the liver by IOUS-guided finger compression.
The technique consists in IOUS-guided finger compression of the right posterior portal pedicle at the level closest to the tumor but oncologically suitable. This method allows us to anatomically mark the area of resection with nor hilar plate nor IOUS-guided puncture of vessels, which are up to date the only two techniques available to perform anatomical right posterior sectionectomy - namely the removal of segment 6 and 7.
Other Name: anatomic resection of segment 6-7
- The primary outcome is the safety of the anatomical right posterior sectionectomy performed IOUS-guided finger compression. [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
- The secondary outcome is the efficacy of the anatomical right posterior sectionectomy performed by IOUS-guided finger compression. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
