The first laparoscopic non-anatomical resection of a focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) was reported by Gagner and colleagues in 1992, and this was followed by the first report of laparoscopic anatomical liver resection in 1996. Since this time, improvements in laparoscopic devices have significantly extended the surgeon's ability to perform these procedures safely, as reflected in recent publications. In this key lecture, Dr. Kaneko presents the different available devices for laparoscopic hepatic resection.
