Authors: Bingfeng Huang, Qida Hu, Risheng Que


A 39-year-old female patient presented with huge hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the right lobe with clinical stage IIIA (cT3N0M0). Preoperative evaluation indicated the feasibility of a right hepatectomy. A laparoscopic right hepatectomy in an anterior approach was then performed. Selective clamping of the right branch of the portal vein was applied, and the estimated blood loss was 200 mL. Postoperative pathology suggested HCC of Edmondson Grade III and stage IIIA (pT3N0M0).
