Partial liver resection with ERBEJET® 2


  • Hepatocellular carcinoma
  • metastases; arising from colorectal cancer
  • Split-Liver
  • Living donor / liver transplantation

Advantages of ERBE equipment

  • Maximum protection of vessels
  • Good visibility at the operative site due to integrated irrigation and suction
  • Minimized bleeding, controlled management of bleeding
  • Reduction in the need for blood transfusions
  • Shorter operation times
  • Precise and intact margins along the line of dissection, no necrosis of the margins
  • For open and laparoscopic surgery

Operation steps
Incision of the liver capsule

Incision of the liver capsule

This step is performed using bipolar scissors, for example the ERBE BiSect.

Preparation and exposition of hepatic vascular structures

Preparation and exposition of hepatic vascular structures

During resection of the liver the blood vessels and bile ducts are prepared and washed free of surrounding tissue. A cross-clamping of the blood supply to the organ (Pringle maneuver) is generally not necessary.

Sealing and dissection of the hepatic vessels

Sealing and dissection of the hepatic vessels

Depending on their size, the vessels can then be either thermofused or selectively treated using a ligature/clip.

Coagulation of the resection bed using argon plasma coagulation (APC)

Coagulation of the resection bed using argon plasma coagulation (APC)

APC can be used for uniform surface coagulation of the resection bed. As APC is a non-contact procedure, it prevents surfaces or vessels that have already been coagulated from being torn open again.
