The databases of two academic centers were searched for patients scheduled between April 2014 and June 2018 for major hepatectomy to treat primary or secondary liver cancer, with previous PVE due to a small FLR. In each patient, the decision to perform hepatic resection surgery after PVE was taken by a multidisciplinary tumor board including a radiologist, a surgeon, and an oncologist. At both centers, the smallest acceptable FLR was 25% in patients without and 40% in patients with an underlying liver disease (19-23).
