This is the case of a patient presenting with a hepatocellular carcinoma, referred to the emergency department because of a hemorrhage. The first step consisted in an arterial embolization. The patient recovers from the embolization and two months later, a left lateral segmentectomy is decided upon. The tumor measures 8cm and is located in segment II and III of the liver. The procedure is performed laparoscopically, away from the digestive bleeding.
