Laparoscopic Liver Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has shown a dazzling evolution in the recent two decades. Although most of the developments initially targeted general surgery and adult patient population, the rapid introduction of smaller instruments for pediatric age group, despite some limitations, has provided pediatric surgeons to adapt and improve their skills in neonatal and pediatric MIS. Currently, pediatric surgeons worldwide perform laparoscopic procedures in almost every field of pediatric surgery. However, the same progress has not been achieved in pediatric laparoscopic liver surgery (LLS), and the trend for performing LLS in liver diseases of childhood has been relatively slow and hesitant [1, 2].
