A right hemihepatectomy is frequently required for surgical removal of colorectal liver metastases. Today, this procedure can be performed quite safely provided the remaining liver is free from significant disease including steatohepatitis due to prolonged cytostatic treatment. Standard surgical techniques for liver resection are described in surgical textbooks. However, each center has developed its own modifications of important details. In this paper, we describe our technique to resect the right liver lobe using conventional surgical techniques as well as a vascular stapler and an ultrasonic dissector. This technique has proven to be quite safe, and blood loss is most often not significant despite we do not routinely apply the Pringle's manoeuvre during the division of the liver parenchyma.
