BackgroundAssociating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is an innovative, 2-staged hepatectomy which has elicited controversy within the international hepatobiliary community. Uptake of ALPPS has been limited due to concerns related to evidence of high morbidity and mortality, and scant oncologic and outcome data on quality of life (Qol). Demonstrating reasonable long-term benefits with a short-term risk is necessary to support more widespread endorsement of ALPPS. Our aim was to describe the intermediate-term survival and patient-reported quality of life outcomes after an ALPPS.
