  • Hepatic Surgery

    Longmire, called it a "hostile" organ because it welcomes malignant cells and sepsis so warmly, bleeds so copiously, and is often the ?rst organ to be injured in blunt abdominal trauma.

Some important topics were covered in more than one chapter like liver trauma, portal hypertension and pediatric liver tumors.
