Abstract

Laparoscopic liver surgery is a tremendous challenge. The authors report a left liver lobectomy and removal by a total laparoscopic approach. Anatomical left lateral laparoscopic segmentectomy was performed on a woman who had a symptomatic hepatic adenoma. The patient was discharged after an uncomplicated postoperative recovery; the hospital stay and convalescence period were very short. The cosmetic result was good.
