Fig. 3. Operative procedure. After mobilizing right hemiliver, the retrohepatic inferior vena cava (IVC) was meticulously dissected and the short hepatic vein was ligated with Hem-O-lok or metal clips (A). Right portal vein (B) and hepatic artery (C) were encircled with vessel loops. During liver parenchymal transection, segment 8 and 5 branches (D, E) from the middle hepatic vein (MHV) was isolated for the reconstruction on the back table. After the right hepatic hilar plate was exposed, a radiopaque rubber marker band was affixed at an adequate point (F). The cutting line of right hepatic duct was confirmed (G) under intraoperative cholangiography (IOC) guidance and clipped with Hem-o-lok clip (H). The right portal vein (I) and hepatic vein (J) were transected with the stapling.
