Abstract. In 2020, more than 18 million cases of cancer were recorded worldwide, amongst which hepatic cancer ranked sixth. Colorectal cancer, which ranks third, gives rise to secondary liver tumors. Several options are available to treat this disease. Currently, one of the leading strategies is liver resection, which can be done either standalone or in combination with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The history of laparoscopic liver resection (LLR) dates back to 1991, and has been evolving continuously. However, there are certain challenges preventing this: the lack of equipments in hospitals and their cost, and as a result, the lack of skilled surgeons. This review will cover LLR in various malignancies, as well as its comparison with the open resection method (efficacy, safety, results, costs).
Key words: liver cancer, laparoscopic liver resection, colorectal cancer.
