Aim: Theoretically, anatomical liver resection requires in-depth understanding of liver anatomy and is technically demanding even by laparotomy. We describe a case of pure laparoscopic S-VII resection using 3D computer-assisted simulation and navigation (3D-CASN).

Methods: Precise preoperative evaluation by 3D imaging enabled us to identify each portal pedicle and hepatic vein and simulate the cutting plane of the liver while securing adequate tumor margins. In the operating room, we started from identifying the intersegmental line between S7/S8 by US. Then, the transection of the liver parenchyma...
