TY - JOUR AU - Nitta, Hiroyuki AU - Hasegawa, Yasushi AU - Takahara, Takeshi AU - Sasaki, Akira PY - 2018 TI - Laparoscopic liver resection in the aging society JF - Laparoscopic Surgery; November 2018 Y2 - 2018 KW - N2 - We have read the article of Goh et al. , titled “Perioperative outcomes of laparoscopic minor hepatectomy for hepatocellular carcinoma in the elderly,” published in the World Journal of Surgery (1). We would like to commend the authors for their interesting analyses on the outcomes of minor laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) among elderly patients. Their study discussed two main analyses: minor LLR, performed in 40 consecutive elderly (≥70 years) patients and 94 young patients (<70 years), and open liver resection (OLR), performed in 85 elderly patients.
