CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis with contrast (Figure 3) demonstrated ongoing cholecystitis with a resolving falciform ligament thrombosis.
Accordingly, between June 2017 and January 2018, we identified and reviewed an overall of eleven patients who had undergone en bloc tumor resection with simultaneous venous vascular resection and reconstruction of the venous blood continuity using a falciform ligament graft within our study period.

A personal trick consists in positioning a transcutaneous traction suture around the hepatic falciform ligament to lift up the liver avoiding the need of the 3 accessory port, Figure 2.
Typical signs of this disorder include avascular areas in the peripheral retina detectable by fluorescein angiography due to abnormal congenital angiogenesis that can cause early-onset neovascularization, falciform folds, lipid exudation, and tractional retinal detachment [1,2].
The spectrum of ocular abnormalities reported in CZS includes maculopathies, such as a particular pattern of macular chorioretinal atrophy with a hyperpigmented ring that resembles torpedo maculopathy, abnormalities of the optic nerve (hypoplasia and severe cupping of the optic disk), microcornea, microphthalmia, falciform folds, pigmentary and hemorrhagic retinopathy, circumscribed chorioretinal atrophy, abnormal vascular development (tortuosity, early termination, absence), coloboma, lens subluxation, cataracts, and retinal dysplasia.
* hydroxychloroquine phosphate in a dose of 500 mg is administered once a week in a monotherapy, in the region where the falciform sporozoite is not resistant to chloroquine.
The camera port was inserted through infraumblical/umblical incision .The second 10 mm port was placed in the epigastrium, about 5 mm below the xiphoid, with its intra-abdominal entrance site being just to the right of the falciform ligaments.
After the organs ventral side was turned up the mobilization of the liver was performed using the classical method (intersection of the falciform, triangular and coronary ligaments), which enabled us to locate the suprahepatic infradiaphragmatic IVC with the insertions of the major hepatic veins, the zone of the IVC passing through the tendon center of the diaphragm, and to evaluate the topography of the phrenic vein insertions in this area.
The mean major axis of the lesion was 20.0 [+ or -] 9.5 mm (median: 19.5 mm) and the location was S3 in 1 patient (near the umbilical portion), S4 in 16 (transverse part of the portal vein in 8, near the falciform ligament of the liver (Sappey's vein area) in 6, and the gallbladder bed and adjacent to IVC in 1 each), S5 in 6 (the gallbladder bed in 3, the right lobe surface in 1, and other area of the right lobe in 2), and S8 (right lobe surface) in 1.
