Right hepatectomy is a standard anatomical procedure used worldwide, and consists of two important steps: access to the portal pedicle at the hepatic hilus and approach through the right hepatic vein. With interest in the early work in the field of right hepatectomy, we searched for official documents, published not only in English but also non‐English languages for insights on the history of the great work conducted by pioneer liver surgeons in the East and West.To discuss anatomical right hepatectomy, it is important to consider several issues, including liver anatomy, other anatomical liver resection procedures, control of vascular in‐flow and out‐flow, operative procedures or approaches, preoperative management and other related issues.With regard to the history of liver anatomy, according to Couinaud's article, the journal Anatomia Hepatis published a paper in 1654 by the British anatomist and physician, Francis Glisson, that described in detail the anatomy of vascular structures of the hepatic hilum, which are referred to today as Glisson's (eponymously named as Glisson's, Glissonean or Glissonian in posterity) vasculo‐biliary sheath . The details of this anatomy remain important today for every liver surgeon involved in the conduct of hepatic vascular control procedures in various types of anatomical hepatectomies. From
