[Liver hanging maneuver in the course of right hemihepatectomy: advantages and limitations].

Abstract

Belghiti's liver hanging maneuver is now widely used for right hemihepatectomy or donor operation in living-related liver transplantation. This technique allows parenchymal transection to be performed without liver mobilization and avoiding tumour spread. On the basis of the first few years of world-wide experience we can now assess the advantages and limitations of this technique.
