Ohmoto K, Yamamoto S
Am J Gastroenterol 2001;96(5):1660-1662.

NATA Review
Ohmoto and Yamamoto are to be congratulated for demonstrating another step forward in the minimally-invasive approach to the treatment of hepatic lesions that traditionally required an open liver resection with its attendant blood loss and morbidity.
