Hepatic hemangioma is the most frequently occurring benign tumor of the liver. Hepatic hemangioma rupture is a rare phenomenon, which can lead to life-threatening conditions. Here, we report a case of hepatic hemangioma rupture caused by blunt trauma. Explorative laparotomy was performed due to unstable vital signs and abdominal massive hemoperitoneum revealed on computed tomography. We detected arterial bleeding from a hepatic hemangioma and performed primary suture of the liver and postoperative angiographic embolization.

AbstractAbstract PDF
A hepatic hemangioma is the most frequent benign liver tumor. Once rupture occurs, the bleeding can barely be controlled by using conservative management or endovascular treatment. We report a case of traumatic hepatic hemangioma rupture. A 60-year-old man was referred to our hospital under cardiopulmonary cerebral resuscitation (CPCR). CPCR was continued for 16 minutes after his admission to the emergency room (ER). Computed tomography (CT) showed fluid accumulation in the peritoneal cavity with active contrast extravasation in the left lateral segment of the liver. Percutaneous transarterial embolization and massive transfusion were carried out. Embolization did not stop the bleeding, we decided on an exploration and then resected the lateral segment of the liver to control the bleeding. The specimen showed a ruptured hemangioma in the liver segment.
