ABSTRACT
Various factors that is recombinant activated factor VII infusion, topical haemostatic compounds, use of intraoperative ultra sonography, ultrasonic dissection, argon plasma coagulation, total vascular exclusion, the Pringle manoeuvre have contributed to safety and accuracy in anatomical and non-anatomical liver resection. This novel technique of liver resection appears to be safer than currently accepted best surgical practice, is associated with loss, fewer biliary leaks, and other complications, a reduced postoperative stay in hospital, and a drastically reduced need for ICU admission.
