Abstract

Laparoscopic liver resection is feasible and safe. Small tumors located in the left-lateral segment are the most favorable for the laparoscopic approach. Complication and conversion rates are acceptable. The laparoscopic approach to malignant lesions is controversial and results should be confirmed in further prospective studies. This highly advanced laparoscopic surgery requires experience and the availability of technologies for safe dissection of liver parenchyma.
