Abstract

Liver resection is the principle treatment for primary and secondary malignancies as well as various benign diseases. The challenge of safely and efficiently transecting the hepatic parenchyma remains however. New technology, and specifically energy devices, have transformed the management of liver disease and the technique of liver resection, offering better hemostatic control and simplifying nonanatomical resection. The Habib 4X is a radiofrequency device used in resection of liver; the device and technique are presented.
