Abstract

In traditional right hepatectomy, complete mobilization of the liver is usually conducted before parenchymal transection which may cause unfavourable complications like mass bleeding. So, people put forward the “anterior approach” and the “liver hanging maneuver”. We report a 60-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with the complaint of one-week of implicit inflation and discomfort of the right upper abdomen. In this case, combination of three hepatic portal dissection and liver hanging maneuver were successful used to resect the right liver with giant hemangioma.
