Special Issue "Minimally Invasive Liver Resection"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 October 2023) | Viewed by 2146

Minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopic and robot-assisted approaches, has found application in almost all surgical fields. However, minimally invasive liver resection (MILR) has not yet been established due to the highly demanding techniques required, involving serious risk. It is clear that the precise model of liver anatomy based on Laennec’s capsule has led to the standardization of various procedures in MILR, and this has been expanded to include to anatomic liver resection, living liver transplantation, and perihilar malignancies. This Special Issue, in collaboration with the Journal of Personalized Medicine, will focus on anatomical and histological considerations, surgical techniques, and clinical outcomes of MILR, with the aim of promoting the widespread use of safe and curable MILR.
