Budd-Chiari syndrome is an uncommon condition characterized by hepatic outflow obstruction. Direct suture of the injured Inferior vena cava in a patient with blunt hepatic trauma also may cause an equivalent condition. However, early diagnosis is possible with common symptoms and radiologic evaluation. Moreover, a transluminal approach with balloon angioplasty could prevent long-term complications of Budd-Chiari syndrome without repeated abdominal surgery.
