Relevance: Surgery is one of the main methods of treating patients with liver neoplasms. At that, minimally invasive surgical techniques facilitate the course of the postoperative period and rehabilitation.
The purpose of the study was the selection of optimal surgical treatment for children with liver tumors.
Results: In 2014-2020, five patients aged 3-9 years with liver tumors underwent laparoscopic resection at the Morozovskaya Children’s City Clinical Hospital (Moscow, Russia). Out of 3 patients with hepatoblastomas, two patients had stage PRETEXT I, one – stage II. All patients underwent radical surgical treatment (R0); in one child(4%), the resection volume was R1. The duration of operations did not exceed 60 minutes; intraoperative blood loss was within 10 ml/kg; no intraoperative complications were registered.
Conclusion: Laparoscopic techniques reduce surgery time and blood loss, prevent intraoperative and postoperative complications, shorten the hospital stay, decrease enteral and drug burden, and the need for chemotherapy. They also facilitate radical surgery and early patient mobilization.
