Abstract

Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) is the most growing liver surgical technique in the last ten years and, initial indications have been overpassed (1). After two consensus conferences, the first guidelines have been proposed and, regarding the hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) the debate is still open for the surgical indications. However, numerous studies are now published about LLR for HCC.
