Minimally invasive liver resection (MILR) has evolved considerably in the past decade. Safe hepatic parenchymal transection, has been one of the technical hurdles that has become evident during the growth of MILR. Advances in technology have now made safe liver transection a reality allowing resections of greater magnitude. In this review, the precoagulation approach is described in both methodology and technique. Using this method of liver transection, we have been able to perform MILR of all varieties and magnitudes, with favorable patient outcomes. A detailed description of one particular device will be highlighted to disseminate our experience and thus broaden the technical options for hepatobiliary surgeons wishing to offer their patients a minimally invasive therapy.
