Abstract

We read with great pleasure the article entitled “Use of robotics in liver donor right hepatectomy” by Chen et al., which was published in last year’s October issue of Hepatobiliary Surgery Nutrition (1). This review of robotic hepatobiliary surgery focused on the brief history of minimally-invasive surgery (MIS) in the field of living-related liver transplantation (LRLT).
