The extended hepatectomy/ trisectionectomy is done in cases where there is extensive growth of cancer in the liver or the bile ducts at the hilum, to increase the clearance rate. It is one of the most complex surgical treatments. The liver is divided into 8 segments; of which the resection of segments 5,6,7 &8 are right hepatectomy; the resection of segments 2, 3, & 4 is left hepatectomy and the trisectionectomy involves the resection of either 4 to 8 segments or 2,3,4,5, & 8th segment.
