In the past decade, precision hepatectomy which requires the understanding of segmental and subsegmental liver anatomy has gained popularity due to its parenchymal-sparing benefits. The importance of this concept has led liver surgeons to a consensus conference and its guideline in regards to precision anatomy in minimally invasive liver resection, held in Tokyo in 2020.

A precise control of the sectoral hepatic artery and portal vein allows for a bloodless liver resection, without the use of Pringle maneuver. In the literature, technical description of the right anterior portal pedicle dissection during minimally invasive robotic liver surgery is limited.

In this study, we therefore demonstrate such a technique using fluorescence guidance during robotic segment 8 superior liver resection.
