Abstract

In this surgery, we employed intrathecal dissection to reveal right hepatic artery and portal vein for blockage of right hepatic inflow, hepatic vein was shown clearly after “down-top” dissection along inferior vena cava under a left-traction. Cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator (CUSA) was involved in parenchyma resection, and right hepatic pedicle and hepatic vein were cut off by Endo GIA.
