Ex situ resection of the liver is an alternative surgical procedure for patients with conventionally unresectable hepatic tumors, and with contraindications to liver transplantation. We experienced a case of ex situ resection of the liver in a 40-year-old female patient suffering from sclerosing hepatocellular carcinoma. Preoperative liver function was normal. The duration of the anhepatic period was 2 hours and 55 minutes. No severe hemodynamic or pulmonary complications, and no significant metabolic or coagulatory disorders occurred. To obtain good results by ex situ resection of the liver, anesthesiologist should understand the physiology of the anhepatic period and guard against possible problems during the operation.
