In the past, liver resections and liver transplantations were performed by different surgical teams, with very little interplay between the two. However, the evolution toward more complex operations called for an increasingly intense interaction between these surgical techniques: split liver and living donor liver transplantation have become popular in the transplant community, utilizing the Coinaud segmental anatomy in a very sophisticated way, while portal and arterial resection and reconstruction have become indispensable methods for treating Klatskin tumors infiltrating the hepatic hilum. This book offers a complete overview of the connections between liver transplantation and hepatobiliary surgery. It focuses on ex situ techniques for resection of tumors at the suprahepatic confluence, with or without venous reconstruction, and on total vascular exclusion of the liver with the aid of a venovenous bypass that should be a surgical option for referral centers in hepatopancreatobiliary surgery. By taking into consideration the development of minimally invasive liver surgery, it will introduce readers to a variety of new perspectives such as: vascular exclusion techniques with or without extracorporeal circulation, hemodynamic implications and lessons learned from liver transplant surgery, and technical details on pediatric transplantation and its informative role in modern biliary tract surgery.

The field of hernia repair, in general, has evolved over the last 25 years. The changes that have followed the introduction of this technique have continued and have even increased in the last few years. There is a need to inform the practicing general surgeon about these advances. This text will seek to present the most up to date and important considerations to date. The book will open with a brief history and evolution of the technology surrounding the repair of incisional and ventral hernias laparoscopically and include the introduction of the robotic technology. Prosthetic biomaterials are an integral part of the successful repair of hernias and a comprehensive presentation of these products will be presented. Preoperative preparation of the patient has now been recognized as a method to improve outcomes in these patients and will be addressed.Technical aspects of the repair of these hernias will then follow in an orderly fashion to include the general considerations of the methodology. The "best practices" of these methods will be presented with appropriate figures and illustrations. The management of difficult situations as well as expected outcomes will be discussed. It is the intent of this text that any surgeon interested in the use of the minimally invasive techniques to repair the incisional and ventral hernias of the abdominal wall will have this resource presenting current opinions and methods. The "thought leaders" in these methods will be the authors of these chapters. This title differs from the Springer related title Novitsky, Hernia Surgery. The Novinsky is more comprehensive at 530 pages. It contains many more illustrations and video. The LeBlanc focuses on Laparoscopic and Robotic Hernia surgery with an estimated page count of 300-350. The LeBlanc presents current opinions of the thought leaders. Therefore, the subtitle: Current Considerations.
