BackgroundSince 2012, Associating Liver Partition and Portal vein ligation for Staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has encountered several modifications of its original technique. The primary endpoint of this study was to analyze the trend of ALPPS in Italy over a 10-year period.

The number of ALPPS divided by the total number of liver resections performed by each center slightly declined (APC = - 2.0%, p = 0.111). Minimally invasive (MI) approach significantly increased over the years (APC = + 49.5%, p = 0.002). According to multivariable analysis, MI completion of stage 1 was protective against 90-day mortality (OR = 0.05, p = 0.040) as well as enrollment within high-volume centers for liver surgery (OR = 0.32, p = 0.009). Use of interstage hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) and biliary tumors were independent predictors of PHLF.ConclusionsThis national study showed that use of ALPPS only slightly declined over the years with an increased use of MI techniques, leading to lower 90-day mortality. PHLF still remains an open issue.

Abstract

BackgroundSince 2012, Associating Liver Partition and Portal vein ligation for Staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) has encountered several modifications of its original technique. The primary endpoint of this study was to analyze the trend of ALPPS in Italy over a 10-year period. The secondary endpoint was to evaluate factors affecting the risk of morbidity/mortality/post-hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF).MethodsData of patients submitted to ALPPS between 2012 and 2021 were identified from the ALPPS Italian Registry and evaluation of time trends was performed.ResultsFrom 2012 to 2021, a total of 268 ALPPS were performed within 17 centers. The number of ALPPS divided by the total number of liver resections performed by each center slightly declined (APC = - 2.0%, p = 0.111). Minimally invasive (MI) approach significantly increased over the years (APC = + 49.5%, p = 0.002). According to multivariable analysis, MI completion of stage 1 was protective against 90-day mortality (OR = 0.05, p = 0.040) as well as enrollment within high-volume centers for liver surgery (OR = 0.32, p = 0.009). Use of interstage hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) and biliary tumors were independent predictors of PHLF.ConclusionsThis national study showed that use of ALPPS only slightly declined over the years with an increased use of MI techniques, leading to lower 90-day mortality. PHLF still remains an open issue.
