Although experience with the laparoscopic approach for liver resection has increased in recent years, it still remains a challenging procedure. One of the manoeuvres to reduce catastrophic haemorrhage is occlusion of hepatic inflow by compression of the hepato-duodenal ligament, the so-called Pringle's manoeuvre. One of the limitations of laparoscopic liver resection is the safe placement of a tape around the hepato-duodenal ligament to facilitate intermittent clamping of the porta-hepatis (Pringle's manoeuvre) prior to hepatic transection. We present a novel, safe and efficient technique that has evolved during this series of laparoscopic liver resections.
