Clinical case: partial resection of the liver. In this patient, the tumor was located in segment 8 of the liver. Cut ends of the right hepatic vein (RHV) and Glisson’s capsule at segment 8 (GS8) are shown. The middle hepatic vein (MHV) was exposed at the surface of the resection plane. The half-translucency of the hepatic parenchyma allowed for easy anatomical identification of each component.
