This video will show the pertinent steps to perform a totally laparoscopic central hepatectomy. The main steps of this procedure include control of the hepatic inflow, mobilization of the right liver, control of the hepatic outflow, and specimen removal. This technique is feasible and safe via laparoscopic techniques, but should currently be performed at high volume centers by surgeons with expertise in both HPB surgery and minimally invasive techniques.
