Liver resections are performed for acute and chronic end stage liver failure, primary and secondary liver malignancies as well as for several other neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions. Hepatectomy specimens can be total, partial, or wedge resections. These specimens are relatively rare and complex. Meticulous handling, orientation, dissection, margin assessment, and reporting as per the latest guidelines, often require a multidisciplinary approach. This article discusses the approach to grossing of hepatectomy specimens, and the most important macroscopic considerations for specific conditions.
