Nonoperative management of blunt hepatic trauma

Létoublon C., Arvieux C.

From the Universitary Hospital of Grenoble Hopital Michallon, Grenoble, France


FULL TEXT  


Over the past 15 years, there have been dramatic changes in the management of blunt hepatic trauma, specifically in the imaging techniques, and in the non-operative management. Actually, in more than 80% of blunt hepatic trauma, non operative management is used. In the last 20% the surgical option has to be taken without delay, sometimes in extreme emergency, using the adapted surgical techniques. In this article the author describes the nonoperative management of blunt hepatic trauma: classification, presentation, initial decision, treatment, possible complications and results.
