The role of minimally invasive major hepatectomy today is a hotly debated topic. It is viewed as an innovative procedure that should be performed only by experienced surgeons in specialist centres1–4.
Right anterior sectionectomy and central hepatectomy for centrally located tumours are traditionally viewed as complex and technically demanding procedures with a higher perioperative morbidity rate, especially via a minimally invasive approach5,6. This post hoc analysis of databases (2010–2020) aimed to establish outcome data.
