Fig. 1. Flow diagram of study design. For the study, 101 of 108 consecutive patients who underwent surgical treatment for HCCA were selected. Of these, 73 patients with one-side liver resection without vascular resection were selected to evaluate the learning curve. The 27th of 73 selected patients was the first test patient after stabilization of the learning curve. This 27th patient was matched to the 43rd consecutive of 101 patients. Thus, the study group was subdivided into the early period group (n=42) and the late period group (n=59).
