Abstract

Thank you for inviting us to comment the review article entitled “Use of robotics in liver donor right hepatectomy” by Chen PD et al. (1), published on HBSN journal. In their interesting paper, the authors stated that despite the fact that minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has been documented with safety and feasibility in complex liver surgery the progress has been slow in regard to the application of MIS in donor graft hepatectomy.
