PMID:  18473147     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic technique for lesions located in the left liver is well described in the literature. On the contrary, the best laparoscopic approach for lesions located in the right liver, such as in segment VI, is still debated.
AIM: In this article, we provide a detailed description of a laparoscopic segment VI liver resection using a left lateral decubitus position with the right side up, facilitated by a personal technique. We also discuss potential advantages and disadvantages of this procedure.
