Although other reports have stressed the inevitability of portal hypertension and splanchnic pooling following major liver resections, clinical observations during 30 major hepatic resections and measurements of portal pressure in three consecutive trisegmentectomies fail to support this contention. If the remaining liver is normal and careful anatomic dissection is used, major resections can be performed without inducing portal hypertension.
