abstract

  • Segment-oriented liver resection is a distinct surgical approach and represents the virtuosity of hepatic surgery. It is unique in the finesse of its execution and in its oncologic efficacy and safety. The varied combinations of segmentectomy allow greater flexibility and opportunity for liver surgeons to extirpate the equally diverse nature and location of intrahepatic pathologic conditions. The technique promotes tumor clearance while con-serving uninvolved parenchyma.
