Detach the left primary branch of the Glissonean pedicle from the hilum of the liver and pull up this branch to expose the Glissonean pedicles which feed the Spiegel area. It is easy to ligate these small branches one after the other. The short hepatic veins are transected by moving the Spiegel area upward (Fig. 6.4). Liver dissection should be done along the IVC (Fig. 6.5).
