We report a laparoscopic partial liver resection for a large hepatocellular adenoma. This is the case of a 34-year-old patient with several small hepatic nodules. One out of three nodules was a 13cm hepatocellular adenoma, which was found to be located in Couinaud’s segments V and VI. After clamping via blood flow occlusion, parenchymal transection was performed along the outer edge of the tumor using a Sonicision™ Cordless Ultrasonic Dissection Device and an Endo GIA™ linear stapler. After liver resection, cholecystectomy was performed. The postoperative outcome was uneventful. Final pathological findings confirmed the diagnosis of an inflammatory type of hepatocellular adenoma.
