Introduction: Our aim was to report a case regarding combined resection of a hepatocellular carcinoma, hepatic cyst, gallbladder, and appendix.
Case Description: The patient underwent single-incision laparoscopic surgery for resection of a hepatocellular carcinoma, hepatic cyst, gallbladder and appendix.
Discussion: There was 200 mL of blood loss without transfusion. The operation took 140 minutes. The patient’s bowel function recovered on day 3, and he was discharged on day 9. When assessed 1 year after the operation, there was no recurrence of the tumor. Single-incision laparoscopic multiple-organ resection is a safe and feasible option for selected patients, which is worth exploring in clinical work.
Key Words: Single-incision laparoscopic surgery, Multivisceral resection.
