ABSTRACT: Since 1991, the first laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) was reported by Reich, LLR had been applied and improved by different scholars like Wayand (1993), Ferzli (1995), Cherqui (2002), Descottes (2003). Zhou Weiping reported the first LLR in China in 1994. In 2004, after ten years development, LLR became more and more mature and international exchange happens. In 2006, indication and contraindications of LLR were formulated internationally, which promote the application and spread of LLR, especially after 2007. The advantages of LLR include minimal invasion, faster recovery and less complications, but shortages still exist, and the improvements relies on development of related techniques in terms of Laparoscopic ultrasound, LUS, liver dissecting sealer, electrocoagulation electrotome, parenchymatous organ dissection and in vitro simulator. Therefore LLR can get new progress.Zhonghua yi shi za zhi (Beijing, China: 1980) 05/2011; 41(3):173-5.
