Introduction The purpose of this review is to summarize intraoperative surgical strategies available to decrease ischemiareperfusion injury associated with liver resection and liver transplantation. Material and method We conducted a critical review of the literature evaluating the potential applications of hepatic ischemic preconditioning (IPC) for hepatic resection surgery and liver transplantation. In addition, we provide a basic bench-to-bedside summary of the liver physiology and cell signaling mechanisms that account for the protective effects seen with hepatic IPC.
