Abstract

Currently, resective hepatic surgery should be considered an echoguided surgical procedure to guarantee conservative but radical resections. A simple and original technique guided by intraoperative ultrasonography, termed the "hooking technique," had been described previously. It enables the ligation sites of the intrahepatic vessels during systematic segmentectomy to be chosen precisely. This report describes a further application of this technique to allow safe ligation of portal vein main branches invaded by tumor thrombi during major hepatectomies.
