Bleeding from the liver surface during hepatic transection is one of the main factors affecting mortality and morbidity of liver resection. For this reason, numerous devices have been developed that employ a variety of techniques to minimize parenchymal damage and so improve the safety of resection. This book describes all the devices that are currently available for hepatic transection via open, laparoscopic, and robotic approaches. Procedures are explained and illustrated step by step using informative color figures and photographs. This landmark reference in the field will be an ideal guide for liver surgeons as well as a valuable tool for students, residents, and general surgeons.
