2 To measure the change in left portal flow before and after ALPPS procedure using intraoperative doppler ultrasonography 3 To measure the change in portal pressure before and after ALPPS procedure 4 To record the complication rate and mortally rate related to the ALPPS procedure 5 To measure the cellular proliferative activity in the left liver by immunohistochemical staining for Ki-67 and VEGF before and after the ALPPS procedure 6 To measure the change in intraoperative indocyanine green clearance rate of the liver remnant before and after ALPPS
