Laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) is gradually spreading in the world. We have received 474 abstracts including 180 videos for ILLS 2019 in Tokyo. ( In Japan, more than 9,000 cases have been registered for last 3 years at over 300 institutions. However, only LLR with low difficulty such as partial resection or left lateral sectionectomy are performed in most institutions, probably the situation in the world must be the same. In this lecture, I would like to talk about the current status of LLR and the tips for advanced techniques based on the basic principle of LLR with video clips.
