We describe the case of a hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patient with portal vein tumour thrombus (PVTT)
and middle hepatic vein (MHV) invasion undergoing ALPPS operation. Unfortunately, the patient finally
died because of serious intestinal paralysis and secondary infection. We explored some important issues
about patient selection of HCC patients with PVTT and MHV and the correlation between the function and
regeneration volume of future liver remnant in such patients.
