This video will discuss the main steps necessary to perform a totally laparoscopic extended left hepatectomy including partial or complete resection of the middle hepatic vein and resection of segment I. Although totally laparoscopic extended liver resections are currently only being performed in several centers with experience in both minimally invasive and hepatobiliary surgery, it will likely become more common, as more surgeons gain expertise in both of these disciplines.
