One hundred fifty liver resections were performed with an operative mortality rate of 4%. Indications for liver resections were 43 primary liver malignancies, 43 metastatic liver tumors, and 64 benign liver diseases. The 3-year actuarial survival rate after treatment of primary liver malignancy was 56%, and that after treatment of metastatic liver tumors was 66%. All but one of 59 patients with benign disease who survived operation were alive without development of late symptoms or complications.
