The dissection of the border with the middle segment is done on the demarcated line (Cantlie line). After dissecting several centimeters, there is a thick branch of the middle hepatic vein which drains the left segment. This branch must be cut, exerting care not to damage the middle hepatic vein. The dissection of the border with the caudate area is done on the face of the para-caval triangle.
