The application of laparoscopic technology to liver surgery has been developing rapidly, yet very few studies have been conducted to compare the outcomes between open and laparoscopic liver resections. So little is known about their advantages and disadvantages. The aim of this prospective randomized study is to compare the outcomes between laparoscopic and open liver resection in treatment of hepatolithiasis within the left lobes within an enhanced recovery after surgery programme.
