Perioperative lactate dynamics and value for prediction of clinically relevant post-hepatectomy liver failure (grade B or C) in the exploration cohort (509 patients) a Median lactate values (with interquartile range) before surgery (baseline), maximum value within 24 h (Max) and on the morning of postoperative day 1 (POD1; *all P 

Video: Early postoperative arterial lactate concentrations to stratify risk of post-hepatectomy liver failure

Post-hepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) represents the major determinant for death after liver resection. Early recognition is essential. Early postoperative lactate values are powerful, readily available markers for clinically relevant PHLF and associated complications after hepatectomy with potential for guiding postoperative care. This video explains the recent study published in BJS.

Cumulative incidence of retained common bile duct stones on postoperative endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography Active intervention versus surveillance per common bile duct (CBD) stone size. IOC, intraoperative cholangiography; ECRP, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.

Video: Intervention versus surveillance in patients with common bile duct stones detected by intraoperative cholangiography

Each year 13 000 patients undergo cholecystectomy in Sweden, and routine intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) is recommended to minimize bile duct injuries. IOC plus an intervention to remove CBD stones identified during cholecystectomy was associated with reduced risk for retained stones and unplanned ERCP, even for the smallest asymptomatic CBD stones in this BJS study.
